The Simpsons producers have revealed they rejected Donald Trump after he asked to make a guest appearance on the popular animated show.

Executive producer Al Jean was asked at a Comic-Con panel if the series had ever turned down a celebrity who wanted to voice a character.

He paused upon hearing the question, the Wrap reported, before answering: “Let’s just say he’s the president of the Unites States.”

The Simpsons creators predicated that Mr Trump would become president more than 16 years ago, but only as a warning to Americans.

In an episode which aired back in 2000, Lisa becomes President of the United States, talking over from ‘President Trump’.

“We’ve inherited quite a budget crunch from President Trump,” she says while sitting in the Oval Office.

Simpsons writer Dan Greaney told The Hollywood Reporter that the episode was meant to show a vision of the country ‘going insane’.

Show creator Matt Groening told The Guardian: “We predicted that he would be president back in 2000 – but (Trump) was of course the most absurd placeholder joke name that we could think of at the time, and that’s still true.
