President Trump’s team has reportedly been battling Walt Disney World over the president’s speech for The Hall of Presidents exhibit in Magic Kingdom. A source described to Vice the back-and-forth between Disney and Trump’s aides, who have insisted that they will write the speech Trump’s robot will give during the attraction.
Disney is denying the claims, and an official told The Hill that the company is working with Trump team just as it did with prior administrations. "When Disney tried to get this process started earlier this year," the source explained to Vice, "Trump's people said, 'We'll be writing the speech that the -president's audio-animatronic figure will be saying.'"
In a statement emailed to The Hill, a Disney representative denied the report, saying the company has "been working closely with the White House and the president’s recording session" has already been scheduled. "The Vice report is inaccurate. As we have stated, President Trump will have a speaking role in the Hall of Presidents like every president since 1993," the statement read.
