As with any kind of rumour, this information should be considered unofficial until Walt Disney World officially confirms.
According to different sources, Magic Kingdom management are keeping a close eye on the President of the United States’ health. Should President Trump become more ill, or god forbid worse, the Magic Kingdom would close the current iteration of Hall of Presidents.
Disney has always planned, discreetly, to close the Liberty Square attraction in the event of a presidential death or other major event. The current thinking is that it might be in poor taste to have the animatronic Donald Trump speaking if the real Donald Trump is severely ill with Coronavirus (COVID-19).
It’s possible that it might generate negative guest responses should news change suddenly before Disney closes the attraction. While the President is currently experience mild symptoms as of writing this post, it is definitely something we’re going to keep our eye on.
On the other hand, closing the attraction so close to an election could also trigger certain groups which might see it as an attack against the President. It’s highly likely that Disney would need to be very careful when wording the closing of the attraction. It’s a difficult situation to say the least for Disney!

Once again, as with any kind of rumour, this information should be considered unofficial until Walt Disney World officially confirms.
