"Back to the Future II" is still making news, even though the day that character Marty McFly flew into the future -- Oct. 21, 2015 -- is history.

In an interview with The Daily Beast, film writer Bob Gale said that the 2015 Biff Tannen, Marty's arch nemesis in the 1980s trilogy, was based off Donald Trump.

"We thought about it when we made the movie! Are you kidding?" Gale said. "You watch Part II again and there’s a scene where Marty confronts Biff in his office and there’s a huge portrait of Biff on the wall behind Biff, and there’s one moment where Biff kind of stands up and he takes exactly the same pose as the portrait? Yeah."

When paying attention to the details of future Biff Tannen’s life, it is easy to see the similarities between the fictional character and the Republican presidential nominee.

One remarkable similarity was that Biff Tannen resided in a penthouse that is above a casino, which was designed similar to that of the Trump Plaza Hotel.

Trump’s Plaza Hotel had opened its doors only five years prior to the premiere of the film, Rollingstone.com reported. Both Tannen and Trump are recognized for their signature hair as well as their various marriages.

The only thing that writer Gale and  Zemeckis got wrong was the signature insult used by Biff, according to RollingStone.com. Biff should have used Trump's "loser" rather than "butthead" throughout the film.
