Alec Baldwin Claims He Would ‘Absolutely’ Beat Trump in 2020

If there’s one thing actor Alec Baldwin has plenty of, it’s confidence. 

Speaking Monday to SiriusXM host Howard Stern, the frequent “Saturday Night Live” guest insisted he would “absolutely” beat President Donald Trump in a political match.

“If I ran for president, I would win. Hands down, I would win,” he said without flinching. “It would be the funniest, most exciting, craziest campaign.”

The only thing preventing Baldwin from running, the Trump impersonator joked, is his wife’s disapproval and his contract to host ABC’s “The Match Game.”

After Stern pressed him a few more times, the actor said people “don’t really have a sense yet” of who might run in 2020.

“Somebody great is going to come up, I hope,” he said. “I’d love to run for that kind of position to just have things be very common sense. There are so many things that this country needs to do that are so obvious.”


Trump has been very critical of Baldwin’s impersonation of him on “SNL.” In December 2016, the incoming president described the actor’s schtick as “mean-spirited and not very good.” In March 2018, he blasted Baldwin’s “dying mediocre career.”

Baldwin, for his part, fired back, telling Trump he’d like to continue doing his award-winning impersonation through “the impeachment hearings, the resignation speech, the farewell helicopter ride to Mara-A-Lago (sic),” all of which he described as “the good stuff.”
