Trump Says Trade Wars Can Be 'Good,' Tells Alec Baldwin People Felt 'Agony' Watching Him on 'SNL'

President Donald Trump took on his mocker in chief, Alec Baldwin, who played him on “Saturday Night Live” (SNL), and tweeted that people felt “agony” when “forced to watch” Baldwin's performance:

“Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!” Trump tweeted in reference to another actor who played him on “SNL.”

The Baldwin attack was just one of many Trump tweets on Friday morning when he also harped on the importance of having robust trade:

“IF YOU DON’T HAVE STEEL, YOU DON’T HAVE A COUNTRY!” Trump tweeted.

His tweets came just a day after Trump announced new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

Although some feared Trump's protectionist agenda would prompt trade wars, Trump seemed to welcome that.

“Trade wars are good, and easy to win,” he said.

On Thursday, he justified his decision by arguing that the United States needed “SMART TRADE.”

“We must not let our country, companies and workers be taken advantage of any longer,” he tweeted.
