Alec Baldwin Teases Running For President In 2020

Wednesday, 13 Jun, 2018

"I would absolutely win", Baldwin admits rather confidently.

Never short on confidence, Baldwin responded: "If I ran, I would win..."

Alec Baldwin, The Glengarry Glen Ross star, and frequent guest on Saturday Night Live said he is certain that he could win the presidency in 2020 against the incumbent, Donald Trump.

And while one might have to concede that Baldwin's self-confidence is impressive, on the other hand, not everyone on social media was happy with his cut-and-dry self-importance. "It would be the funniest, most exciting, craziest campaign".

"I'm only saying that because people don't really have a sense of who's going to come up", he said.

It's not the first time the 60-year-old actor has talked about running for president.

"I'd love to run for that kind of position to just have things be common sense", Baldwin explained.

"There are so many things that this country needs to do that are so obvious", he added. "Somebody great's going to come up, I hope".

And in March, Trump claimed Baldwin's career was "dying" before he started impersonating then-candidate Trump, and claimed it was more "agony" for viewers to watch Baldwin play him.

In the very same interview with Howard Stern, the actor also went on to suggest that Donald Trump's meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un was little more than a cover-up to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.

Baldwin said he wants Democrats "to have a smart opposition to keep them on their toes".
