Bust of Donald Trump already in the works for Disney’s Hall of Presidents




Bob Iger says that Disney is already working on a bust of President-Elect Trump to be added to the Hall of Presidents attraction at the Magic Kingdom. The Hollywood Reporter says Iger spoke to Wall Street analysts “after disclosing disappointing quarterly earnings results”; the Disney CEO also “railed against high corporate taxes.” Iger said, “We are no longer competitive with the rest of the world in that regard and must be addressed, and it’s possible that, given what’s gone on this week, that that’s likely to be addressed sooner rather than later, and that’s obviously a good thing. It’s also a good thing, I think, for markets and for most businesses that the transition is already off to what appears to be a fairly smooth start.” Iger was speaking after Trump and President Obama met at the White House for a meeting to discuss the transfer of power. Iger added, “It looks like there's cordiality, which we've not seen in a long time, and there's an attempt by both sides with the incumbent and the president-elect to approach this in a rational, cordial, effective and polite way. That can only be good for business and for the country. On the smooth transition front, we're going through a smooth transition as well. We've already prepared a bust of President-elect Trump to go into our Hall of the Presidents at Disney World." The Hall of Presidents will be closed  from January 17-June 29, 2017 for the addition of the new president, who will be sworn into office on January 20. The attraction closed for 8 months in 2008 to add the Barack Obama audio-animatronic. News source: The Hollywood Reporter
