Alec Baldwin says in an interview published Thursday he finds it physically painful to play President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump rips Dems' demands, impeachment talk: 'Witch Hunt continues!'

"Every time I do it now, it's like agony. Agony. I can't," Baldwin told The Hollywood Reporter.

"If things don't go in the right direction for the midterms … I could go out on the street, stand on any corner and tap 10 people on the shoulder. And all 10 of them, in all likelihood, would be more qualified — ethically, morally, intellectually and spiritually — than Trump," he continued.

I don't care. Anybody over this guy. It doesn't matter."


The comedian, who has won an Emmy for his role as the 45th commander in chief, said he is actively working to ensure Trump is not reelected in 2020. 

"I was the keynote speaker at the Democratic Dinner in Iowa, and I'm gonna go do a couple more of those this year. My wife and I agreed that we're gonna give it everything we have. And then if, God forbid, he wins again in 2020, I'm wondering can I host a game show in Spain," he said. 

Baldwin has been portraying Trump on "SNL" for two years. 

The former "30 Rock" star is in the process of launching his own talk show on ABC, "Sundays with Alec Baldwin," featuring various entertainers and political figures.
