Alec Baldwin to reprise his President Trump for the SNL premiere
Alec Baldwin is to reprise his Donald Trump impression for the premiere of SNL.
The star will bring back his President Trump for the Saturday Night Live season 43 premiere.
He revealed that he would bring back the much-loved impressin on Wednesday on the Ellen DeGenres Show.
He said: “The season premiere is Sept. 30. I’m going to do that, yeah. I’m going to do a couple of them,” said Baldwin.
“We’re going to do it until … OK, never mind,” he teased.
Baldwin made a return to SNL earlier this year with his Trump impression – but has also been out and about teaching it to young people.
Kicking off the show’s cold open earlier in March, viewers watched as Baldwin imitated Trump in the midst of an alien invasion.
And at the premiere of Boss Baby, the star was caught on camera teaching the impression to a young kid.

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter at the event, Baldwin said he would reprise the role “on and off with SNL for a little while.”
In the latest sketch featuring the character, armed men and women gather in a bunker to prepare for battle against the aliens invading America and await a speech from the commander-in-chief, Baldwin’s Trump.
The mind-blowing plan that the character comes up with involves coal: “Here’s what we’re going to do, we’re going to bring coal back. You won’t believe how much coal we’re going to have. You’ll say I never knew there could be so much coal.”
While the rest of the soldiers in the bunker roll their eyes, Trump is then informed that the state of California had been vaporised.
“So I won the popular vote?” Baldwin asks, before asking if Arnold Schwarzenegger had also died.
When told where the aliens are from, Trump begins to defend the planet sparking people to question if he has business deals on the planet.
The character is also informed that Trump hotel was attacked in New York, causing 50 million in damages. “More like a billion dollars,” Trump retorts.
Alien’s begin to advance in on Trump and the base, which prompts the character to accuse them of “coming here for hundreds of years” and pointing to Lesley Jones (who is on the cast) and saying “there’s one.”
Trump is challenged on this and asked where he got his information, “infowars” he exclaims.
Aliens then attack the base and the group recites the pledge of allegiance, which Trump does not know the words to.
The side splitting sketch finishes with the Aliens asking who the leader is, to which Baldwin accuses one of the soldiers.
