A creepy robot depicting President Donald Trump was unveiled at Walt Disney Word's Hall of Presidents. The addition is sure to scare kids (and adults) from all over the world.
An early viewing of the robotic figure took place Monday afternoon in the Orlando, Florida, park. George Washington’s robot starts things off by introducing the oath of office, which Trump’s animatronic then recites. The robot then goes on to talk about the “American spirit,” speaking of optimism in a subdued speaking style that does not quite resemble the president as much as one might expect.
“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 robot tells visitors.
Still, Disney was able to add the hand gestures to the robot that are signature traits of Trump.
Many people online mocked the robot for not looking like Trump at all, with some saying he resembled Hillary Clinton or actor Jon Voight instead.
While Trump's hair, ill-fitting suit, and signature hand gestures were part of the robot, many social media users said Disney actually did a bad job making the robot look like the president
Here me out on this. Clearly Disney had Hilary's robot ready to go and then they had to try and make it look like Trump. Don't hate me. This is just a necessary and painful fact we all need to deal with. pic.twitter.com/biSirfwE59— Shannon O'Neill (@spotastic) December 19, 2017
Disney gave the job of Trump in the Hall of Presidents to Jon Voight and I can’t stop laughing. pic.twitter.com/dtu4PnqPv4— Wil Spillane 🚀 (@2xUEss) December 19, 2017
I'll never have to visit Hall of Presidents now. My kids will thank me.— Colleen Maynard (@ursalita) December 19, 2017

Even uglier than the original and easily would be smarter.— VerLen Merry Christmas ? (@Glorygirlone) December 19, 2017
The animatronic Trump would’ve made a better President.— Scott Ellner (@imscotte1) December 19, 2017
Not flattering. Of course, in their defense, they didn't have much to work with.— DanaTmo (@danamarena) December 19, 2017
"He is perhaps best known for how he uses his words sometimes carelessly, yet oftentimes with the specific intent of degrading, insulting and demeaning not only those who do not agree with him on any given topic, but entire groups of people including Mexicans, Muslims, women and the disabled," the petition stated.
The petition has yet to be delivered.
While the robot is quite scary, we can all safely say that users were right: A robotic Trump as president would have been preferable to the real thing. After all, the artistic rendition of the president seems much more agreeable and even (gasp) nicer than the actual president.
