“I signed a tremendous travel ban. I didn’t read it, but I signed it,” Baldwin said as Trump.
Alec Baldwin as president Donald Trump on this week’s Saturday Night Live, actor and 17-time SNL host did finally reprise his impression of the commander in chief.
Appearing on an episode of The People’s Court in which he filed a case against the federal judges who opposed his controversial travel ban, Baldwin’s Trump was asking for “broad, unchecked power.”

“Mr. Trump, you understand that this is a TV court, right?” asked the host of “The People’s Court,” played by Cecily Strong.
“That’s okay, I’m a TV president,” Baldwin-as-Trump responded.

When asked if he swore to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth, Baldwin responded by waving his arms and saying, “I’m good.”
He claimed he wanted the ban reinstated and also to be paid “$725.”
Beck Bennett returned as Russian president Vladimir Putin to speak on behalf of Trump’s case. “He’s my little American Happy Meal,” Bennett said of Baldwin’s Trump.
