Trump also added (jokingly that the film will “never be the same” without him.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has said Trump’s cameo was cut to accommodate commercials and said the edit dates back to 2014.
Trump had previously called Trudeau "two-faced," adding that the Canadian prime minister probably mocked him due to their disagreements over Canada's NATO membership fees after Trudeau 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.
