“I can’t imagine I would do it again. I just can’t … They should find somebody who wants to do it,” he said. “They’re all my dear friends and I love going there, but the other thing is that I’m going to go to work this fall in a way I haven’t done in a while.”

Baldwin, who won and Emmy for his portrayal of Mr Trump, said his family played a part in his decision to quit.

“My wife and I had a son a year ago, and since he was born, I’ve worked minimally because I wanted to be there for my wife and kids,” he said.

“But the party’s over this fall and I’ll be travelling. SNL just crushes my weekends, and now weekends are going to become much more precious to me because that’s time with my kids.”

He also suggested that comedian Anthony Atamanuik would be his pick to replace him. Atamanuik already does a good impression of the US president on The President’s Show.
