“I guess Justin T doesn’t much like my making him pay up on NATO or Trade!” Trump tweeted, linking to coverage by a Tampa-area Fox affiliate about the television edit of Trump’s appearance in the 1992 film, which was shot while he owned New York’s Plaza Hotel, a key location in the film.

Trump also tweeted that the film would “never be the same! (just kidding)."

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has said Trump’s cameo was cut to accommodate commercials, and said the edit dates back to 2014.

Trump previously called Trudeau "two-faced" after the prime minister was seemingly caught on camera gossiping about the president with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emanuel Macron during a NATO summit in London.
