The 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump has officially joined Disney's Hall of Presidents attraction.
The audio-animatronic figure joins the other 43 cyber-presidents. The exhibit, which premiered in 1971, has been closed for the last year for renovations, and will re-open on December 19.

Trump's figure stands at the center of the stage and is mounted next to a seated Abraham Lincoln. During the 25-minute show he recites the following speech:
"I, Donald John Trump, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and will, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, so help me God," the Trump figure says in a longer video shared by WDWMagic.
"From the beginning, America has been a nation defined by its people. At our founding, it was the American people who rose up to defend our freedoms and win our independence," says the animatronic in its speech.
"It is why our founders began our great Constitution with three very simple words: 'We the people.' Since that moment, each generation of Americans has taken its place in the defense of our freedom, our flag, and our nation under God."
“Above all, to be American is to be an optimist — to believe that we can always do better — and that the best days of our great nation are still ahead of us.”
The animatronic features allow for smoother and more lifelike movements. President Trump actually recorded the dialogue exclusively for The Hall of Presidents, a tradition fulfilled by each sitting president since the early 1990s.
