Baldwin’s unflattering impression of Mr Trump proved a big hit with critics of the President-elect in the run-up to the election.

In his latest six-minute skit on Saturday Night Live, Baldwin depicts him as overwhelmed and bumbling as he goes about choosing his cabinet and following up campaign promises.

“Google, what is ISIS?” says Baldwin’s Trump as he taps into his laptop.

“Oh my, 59 million results.”

“Siri, how do I kill ISIS?” he asks his phone – before realising “this is a Blackberry”.

He then takes a breath and repeats the mantra: “Big, beautiful boobs and buildings, big, beautiful boobs and buildings, big, beautiful boobs and buildings.”

The real Donald Trump was not amused.

He posted to his 15 million Twitter followers: “I watched parts of @nbcsnl Saturday Night Live last night. It is a totally one-sided, biased show — nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?”

Baldwin was quick to hit back at the billionaire President-in-waiting, tweeting: “Equal time? Election is over. There is no more equal time. Now u try 2 b Pres + ppl respond. That’s pretty much it.”

The actor fired off more tweets, including: “I’d be focused on improving our reputation abroad, including actually fighting for freedom and not just oil.”

He also referenced Mr Trump’s controversial staff choices, such as Steve Bannon as chief White House strategist, and Senator Jeff Sessions, the attorney general nominee who has been accused of making racist statements.

Baldwin tweeted: “@realDonaldTrump I would make appointments that encouraged people, not generate fear and doubt”.

He also said if he were president he would “be focused on improving our reputation abroad, including actually fighting for freedom and not just oil”.

The actor’s attack on Mr Trump comes as a judge told new US citizens that if they did not like the President-elect they “need to go to another country”.

Judge John Primomo was presiding over a citizenship ceremony in San Antonio when he commented on the outcome of the US election.
