Alec Baldwin still hasn’t perfected his Donald Trump impression ahead of Saturday Night Live’s premiere, but he has the confidence of the GOP candidate down pat. We know Baldwin will portray Trump this season, at least for as long as the election lasts, and he’s kicking it off with a debate with Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton on the SNL premiere. Tina Fey suggested Baldwin for the role to SNL head Lorne Michaels, but it would seem that Baldwin is doing it for another reason according to his red carpet chat with Extra:

“That’s what I wanted to do, I wanted to make his wish come true,” said Baldwin, when the reporter mentioned that Trump has said in the past he’d like to see the actor play him. “So when they asked me, I said, ‘I’m only going to do this for Donald.’ I’m doing it for him.”
