Baldwin doesn't expect to take his impression of President Trump from "Saturday Night Live" to the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner. Trump announced on Twitter last month that he wouldn't be attending the fundraiser for college scholarships and venue for reporting awards, and a host hasn't yet been named. That's led to speculation that Baldwin could host the April 29 event in character -- but the 58-year-old actor doesn't see it happening. (Will Heath/NBC via AP, File)

Alec Baldwin said he will play Trump on ‘SNL’ again



Actor Alec Baldwin says he will continue impersonating President Trump on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”

“Yeah, we’re going to fit that in,” he told CNN in New York City Monday. “I think people have enjoyed it.”

Baldwin added his hectic fall schedule means that “SNL” fans will likely get “a couple celery sticks” of him portraying Trump rather than a “whole meal.”

Twitter users on Monday praised Baldwin’s decision to continue satirizing Trump on the popular sketch comedy series.

Baldwin has reportedly hosted “SNL” a record 17 times, with his imitation of Trump ranking among his most memorable performances.

The actor told “Extra” in March that he was unsure “how much more people can take” of him playing Trump.

“There’s a style the president has to have, and I think the maliciousness of this White House is a little – has people very worried, which is why I’m not going to do it much longer, by the way, that whole impersonation,” Baldwin said.

“SNL” cast member Kate McKinnon has portrayed White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and Attorney General Jeff Sessions in past episodes of the program.

Trump has repeatedly criticized “SNL” sketches about him and his administration, tweeting last December that the show had become “unwatchable, totally biased [and] not funny."
