“We have a tremendous amount of drugs flowing into the country from the southern border — or the brown line, as many people have asked me not to call it," Baldwin said. "That’s why we need wall. Because wall works. Wall makes safe.”

He later stated that "you can all see why I have to fake this national emergency."

"I have to because I want to. It’s really simple. We have a problem," Baldwin added, before saying that he's "basically taking military money so I can has wall."

“So I’m going to sign these papers for emergency," he continued. "And then I will immediately be sued and the ruling will not go in my favor and it will end up in the Supreme Court and I’ll call my buddy [Brett] Kavanaugh and I’ll say it’s time to repay the Donny, and he will say, ‘New phone, who dis?’ Then the Mueller report will be released, crumbling my house of cards and I can just plead insanity. 

"And my personal hell of being president will finally be over." 

The skit from Baldwin, who has repeatedly impersonated Trump throughout his presidency, came just a day after Trump declared a national emergency to allocate nearly $8 billion for construction of his long-sought border wall. 

The Rose Garden announcement from Trump came as he agreed to sign a congressional spending bill without the $5 billion in funds for a border wall he had demanded. 

Trump acknowledged on Friday that the declaration would likely face legal challenges. 

“We will possibly get a bad ruling, and then we'll get another bad ruling and then we'll end up in the Supreme Court,” Trump said, adding he believes his administration would prevail at the high court.
