You might not see Alec Baldwin playing Trump on 'SNL' much longer

Alec Baldwin's popular impersonations of Donald Trump for "Saturday Night Live" might be nearing an end.

In an interview with Extra's Mario Lopez, the famed actor said he might not portray the president for much longer because of the "maliciousness" coming from the White House.

"His policies aside — which you can hate — I thought he would have just relaxed," Baldwin said. "There's a style the president has to have, and I think the maliciousness of this White House has people worried. Which why I'm not going to do it much longer, by the way, the impersonation. I don't know how much more people can take of it."

Baldwin said he hoped that once Trump took office the president would have changed.

"Trump just overwhelmingly lacks any kind of sportsmanship," Baldwin said. "He remains bitter and angry, and you want to look at him and go, 'You won!'"

As for a chance to portray Trump at the upcoming White House Correspondents' Dinner — which Trump said he would not attend — Baldwin doesn't think that will happen.

"I don't think they want that for their prestige and their integrity," Baldwin said. "I think a lot of people think if Trump himself doesn't come and face the music as it were, I don't know what kind of program they're going to have."

He added that if he was asked to impersonate Trump, he "probably" would, but he thinks that is unlikely to happen.
