Trump hits back at Baldwin's jibe over comedy role

BY Carla White

Donald Trump has tweeted his displeasure over actor Alec Baldwin's claims that impersonating the US president is "agony", and suggested Saturday Night Live (SNL) should replace him.

Mr Trump tweeted: "Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!"

Baldwin, a Democratic activist, received an Emmy award for his parody last year on SNL.

But he told The Hollywood Reporter that he does not enjoy it: "Every time I do it now, it's like agony. Agony. I can't."
