You're 100% right but they're stuck now. If they announced it's closure 50% of the country will lose their collective sh*t and start harassing Disney PR and with a social media firestorm. Most of these people won't actually be potential customers and many of them will have never heard of the attraction before but we all know it would happen, especially because they're convinced that the media / corporations / fact checkers / basically everyone is out to get them already and it would just reinforce that idea and add fuel to the batsh*t crazy fire (I'm trying to be diplomatic here, not sure if it's working but I'm trying...lol).
Once they actually add the animatronic and sink a ton of money into it they can't close it either, so really the thing to do would be to wait at least 3 years until early into the next election season and close it then. Until then you're stuck with the stupid thing.
This attraction sucks on so many levels though. People have become militant about politics lately (thanks in large part to social media) and the idea of bringing politics into the "happiest place on earth" just seems like a truly miserable idea. For a place that's supposed to be an escape from reality, there's nothing that brings you back to reality like seeing side by side Barack Obama and Donald Trump animatronics. If they left it with presidents that are well respected by everyone from hundreds of years ago like Lincoln and Washington that would be another story, but I don't get the appeal of bringing in modern day politicians.
