Actor Alec Baldwin said he would “absolutely win” a hypothetical 2020 race against President TrumpDonald TrumpHillicon Valley — State Dept. employees targets of spyware Ohio Republican Party meeting ends abruptly over anti-DeWine protesters Jan. 6 panel faces new test as first witness pleads the Fifth MORE.
“If I ran, I would win," Baldwin said told radio host Howard Stern on Monday. “I would absolutely win.”
Baldwin also said his campaign would be “the funniest, most exciting, most crazy campaign.”
Baldwin, who won an Emmy for his “Saturday Night Live” portrayal of Trump and is one of the president’s most vocal critics, has touted his potential presidency before. He said in 2017 that he would make a “good president” but didn’t know if his family would want to handle life in the White House.
“To run for office is something that I want to do,” Baldwin said at the time, but added that campaign “doesn't seem to be practical with my lifestyle and my children."
He told Stern on Monday that he would only run to bring “common sense” to American politics.
"The only reason I say that is because I'd love to run for that kind of position to have things just be very common sense," Baldwin said. "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.”
He also said that Democrats “want to see a healthy Republican Party.”
