Alec Baldwin Teases Running For President In 2020

Alec Baldwin Teases Running For President In 2020”

On Monday, Baldwin-who won an Emmy past year for his portrayal of Donald Trump on SNL-told Howard Stern that he could beat the current Commander in Chief if he chose to run for the top office in 2020.

Baldwin told Stern that if he ran for USA president in 2020, he would "one-thousand per cent" beat Trump.

Stern suggested the highly opinionated Baldwin run for office and asked the actor how he would fare against Trump. "I would absolutely win. It'd be the funniest, most exciting, most insane campaign", Baldwin replied with a smile.

Baldwin has previously been incredibly critical of the president, and regularly parodies him on "Saturday Night Live".

The actor and the president are somewhat connected.

"I'm told she loves...more than one person, now a second person has come to us and said, yeah, it's true", he claims.

Baldwin joked that he couldn't actually run because of his wife's disapproval and that he's too busy with his ABC game show Match Game, but used his Trump impersonation to say that he would take off the whole summer as president.

"I'm only saying that [about running for president] because people really don't have a sense of who is gonna come up". "I'd love to run for that kind of position to just have things be very common sense. There's so many things this country needs to do that are so obvious".

Baldwin said he wants Democrats "to have a smart opposition to keep them on their toes".
