Alec Baldwin is returning as Trump

After fueling speculation that he might set aside the spray tan forever, Alec Baldwin has confirmed he'll reprise his role as President Trump for Saturday Night Live when the show returns for its 43rd season this fall. "Yeah, we're going to fit that in," he told CNN. "I think people have enjoyed it."

Earlier this year, the actor suggested he might be done with the impression after a single season of SNL. "There's a style the president has to have, and I think the maliciousness of this White House has people very worried," he said in March. "Which is 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 it."

NBC has yet to announce an official SNL premiere date, but in the meantime, here's Baldwin as Trump weighing in on the Russia investigation. Bonnie Kristian
