Alec Baldwin says he’s returning as President TrumpDonald John TrumpSanders apologizes to Biden for supporter's op-ed Jayapal: 'We will end up with another Trump' if the US doesn't elect progressive Democrats: McConnell impeachment trial rules a 'cover up,' 'national disgrace' MORE on “Saturday Night Live.”

 “I’m going to do some of it, but not a whole lot,” Baldwin said on the podcast “Origins With James Andrew Miller,” released Friday.

 The 60-year-old “30 Rock” alum won accolades for his weekly lampooning of the commander-in-chief, snagging an Emmy last year for his work on NBC’s long-running sketch comedy show.


 “We’re going to do the show a few times,” Baldwin said.

 There was some question whether the "Match Game" host would head back to the late-night series — which kicks off its 44th season on Sep. 29.

Baldwin — a fierce critic of the president — told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this year, “Every time I do it now, it’s like agony. Agony. I can’t.”

 “SNL” creator Lorne Michaels told the podcast he only learned recently that Baldwin would return as Trump.

 “He was at the U.S. Open last week and somebody asked him if he was doing Trump, and he said, ‘Yeah,’” Michaels said of Baldwin.

 “His agent texted me and said, ‘I think he’s doing Trump,'” Michaels added.


 “I think he’ll be back,” Michaels continued. “I think there’s probably no other actor who’s looking to follow Alec.”

 Trump has blasted Baldwin’s impression of him before, calling it “terrible.”

 “For those people who don’t think it’s funny, I get that. There are people who they just don’t think it’s funny and they don’t think I’m funny,” Baldwin said on the podcast.

 “I’ll give you Lorne’s phone number, you call him and you come in, and the job is yours if he’ll hire you. You can have it,” Baldwin exclaimed.

 “Trump’s insane. I think most people know — he’s insane,” Baldwin said. “We have a man as president who’s insane.”

 “You can’t go far enough with this idiot — you can’t go far enough,” the actor said.

But Baldwin says he has another “Saturday Night Live” cast member in mind to take over the part if he does decide to leave the role.

 “If I leave the show, I’ve already told Lorne, ‘If I leave, Kate should do Trump.’”

 “Kate’s the only one that can do Trump on the show.”

 “My point is that you can have somebody come in that 100 percent of the people in this country approve of that performance,” Baldwin said, “and you want to know something? That’s going to have no impact on the election, whatsoever. None, none. The only thing that’s going to change the course of this election is voter turnout.”
