Now, fans of the iconic festive film franchise are calling for Trump to be digitally removed from Home Alone, too.
You can remind yourself of his cameo here:
Trump - then a mere businessman and TV personality - famously made the film appearance in the 1992 Home Alone sequel, Lose In New York, appearing in his hotel, and telling Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) how to find the lobby.
However, fans say that the President should have his appearance edited out of the film, due to his recent actions - which have once again struck up an impeachment debate.
"Has anyone thought of editing Home Alone 2 to remove Donald Trump?
"It sounds like something that's probably been done and I want to see it," one person wrote, following recent events.
"Can we edit Donald Trump out of Home Alone 2?," another penned.

Pushing for the same action on Trump's other cameos, a third wrote: "It's nice that people are pushing to edit trump out of home alone 2 but I think we all need to make sure he also gets edited out of the most important movie of all time, Zoolander".
While the Chris Columbas film, Home Alone, is yet to act on the public urges, one fan took it upon themselves to remove the POTUS, in a clip which has since gone viral.
In it, Kevin can be seen speaking into a blank space, where Trump used to stand, and his famous line: "down the hall and to the left" has also been muted out.

"Can you now do this to American History?," replied one person to the video, which has since been retweeted almost 15,000 times.
"Thank you for replacing him with the Predator," wrote another, referencing the 2008 sci-fi film.
While another joked: "Now that Kevin doesn't know where the lobby is, he will remain lost in New York".

There are also similar edits where other celebs have been superimposed onto Trump, including Dolly Parton, Keanu Reeves and Barack Obama. ICONIC.
There is also one with his former opponent Hillary Clinton's head over his, and another where the new President Elect, Joe Biden, appears instead.
It comes after the official Twitter Safety account wrote last week: "After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.
"In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action.
"Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and world leaders directly. It is built on a principle that the people have a right to hold power to account in the open.
"However, we made it clear going back years that these accounts are not above our rules and cannot use Twitter to incite violence. We will continue to be transparent around our policies and their enforcement."
Facebook also banned Trump "indefinitely" on Thursday, with the platform's boss Mark Zuckerberg confirming the action would remain in place at least until Joe Biden is sworn in as President.
