Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Alec Baldwin revealed in a new statement that he gets paid $1,400 for playing Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live.”

Baldwin was interviewed recently in The New York Times and he talked about some details regarding his stint on the comedy show. He shared about his spot on impersonation of Trump, “I see a guy who seems to pause and dig for the more precise and better language he wants to use, and never finds it. It’s the same dish — it’s a grilled-cheese sandwich rhetorically over and over again.”

Baldwin’s portrayal was well-loved by most of the viewers but Trump hated it as he has been posting about it on social media. He said in a tweet earlier this month that the latest stint of Baldwin was unwatchable and totally biased. Baldwin, on the other hand, responded to his tweet by saying that Trump should release his tax returns and he will stop portraying the president-elect on “Saturday Night Live.”

The actor said that he plans to continue with the impersonation on “SNL” although his film schedules will not permit him to be on the show as often as he wants to. He also said that he watched hours of rallies showing Trump as well as his campaign appearances in the past in order to mimic the physicality and speech patterns of the president-elect.

As for how to look like Trump, an insider shared, “A dusting of Clinique Stay-Matte powder in honey. A hand-stitched wig. Eyebrows glued up into tiny peaks. The rest is left to Alec Baldwin: the puckered lips, a studied lumbering gait and a wariness of humanizing a man he reviles.”

Trump also said that he admits he and the other people on “SNL” underestimated Trump as they have planned four more years of impersonating Hillary Clinton via Kate McKinnon .

Trump is yet to comment on this.
