In a long-running Saturday Night Live skit, Alec Baldwin has played President Donald Trump. Now, the Emmy-winning actor claims that if Baldwin 2020 were to become a real thing, he would certainly defeat President Trump.
"If I ran, I would win," Baldwin said during an interview with Howard Stern.
“I would absolutely win. One thousand percent,” Baldwin continued. He did joke that the only thing holding him back from becoming the leader of the free world is his wife being a game show host.
Per Fox News:
Stern then suggested Baldwin to run “for president as Donald Trump” – to which Baldwin repeated himself saying that he would have no problem wining against the current president.
“If I ran for president, I would win. Hands down, I would win,” he said. “It would be the funniest, most exciting, craziest campaign.”
This isn’t the first time Baldwin joked about his ability to take on Trump or his suitability to be the president.
“Would I think I'd be a good president? Yeah, I think I'd be a good president,” he told an audience at George Washington University last year, The Hill reported. “To run for office is something that I want to do,” he added, but noted that running “doesn't seem to be practical with my lifestyle and my children."
Before that, he also tweeted a cryptic message, saying: “If I run for a President, think of how entertaining the debates would be.”

Baldwin received an Emmy Award for his portrayal of Trump on Saturday Night Live.
One thing is for sure: the left has no idea who is going to run in 2020.
