Alec Baldwin says he may return to his Emmy Award-winning role as President TrumpDonald John TrumpWarren: Dershowitz presentation 'nonsensical,' 'could not follow it' Bolton told Barr he was concerned Trump did favors for autocrats: report Dershowitz: Bolton allegations would not constitute impeachable offense MORE on “Saturday Night Live” after all.

“[‘SNL’ creator Lorne Michaels] is my good friend, and if they want me to come and do the show per my availability, I’d be more than happy,” Baldwin told Extra on Monday.


The 61-year-old actor’s latest remarks appear to be an about-face from comments he made just days ago. Baldwin told USA Today in a Thursday interview that while he’s “had a lot of fun” playing Trump on the long-running sketch comedy show, he felt “like I’m done with that now.”

“I can’t imagine I would do it again. I just can’t,” he said. “They should find somebody who wants to do it,” Baldwin said.

Despite playing him on TV, the “Match Game” host is a vocal critic of Trump and has tangled on social media with the commander in chief. Baldwin has likened Trump to a “National Socialist tumor,” — in what appears to be a reference to Hitler’s National Socialist German Workers’ Party — while the president has said the performer’s impersonation of him “just can’t get any worse” and is “agony” for viewers.

Baldwin won an Emmy for his role as Trump in 2017.
