An animatronic version of Donald Trump created for a Disney attraction has been mocked on social media.
The robot is part of the Hall of Presidents attraction at the Magic Kingdom park at Disney World resort in Florida.
The 25-minute show features figures of several past presidents, including Abraham Lincoln, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.
Trump recorded his message for the attraction, as have each sitting president since the early 1990s.

“At our founding, it was the American people who rose up to defend our freedoms and win our Independence."
But, after a video of the attraction’s latest addition was released, Twitter was sent into meltdown as users questioned the robot’s realism.
