Baldwin’s impersonation of Trump has been a huge hit on Saturday Night Live in the US. Trump has repeatedly responded to Baldwin’s impersonations and REM’s Michael Stipe even blamed Baldwin’s impression of the billionaire businessman, in part, for his unexpected political rise.

“It’s totally a caricature,” Baldwin said on last night’s Late Show. He then told host Stephen Colbert how he gets ready for the role, saying that he watches footage of Trump for inspiration.

“You just pick a few things. Like I’m sitting in the room and I’m going, ‘Left eyebrow up, right eyebrow down, shove your face like you’re trying to suck the chrome off the fender of a car.’”
