Saturday Night Live Wiki

Donald John Trump Sr. (born June 14, 1946) is an American business magnate, television personality and author who is the chairman and president of The Trump Organization and the 45th president of the United States from 2017 to 2021. He left office on January 20, 2021, after losing his re-election to Joe Biden. However, Trump refused to concede this loss, instead falsely accusing the winning side of voter fraud. He is the first U.S. President to be impeached twice; the first time was in 2019 for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, and the second time was in 2021 for inciting the January 6 insurrection (caused by Trump's belief that he won the election). He is also well-known for being the host of the NBC reality series The Apprentice. He hosted Saturday Night Live on April 3, 2004 and November 7, 2015.

He has been impersonated by Phil Hartman four times between December 10, 1988 and February 24, 1990. Darrell Hammond has impersonated him 16 times during his tenure, two times as a cameo and nine times as the show's announcer, a total of 27 times between October 2, 1999 and May 14, 2016. Jason Sudeikis has impersonated him one time during a Fox and Friends sketch on November 3, 2012. For the 2016 election season Taran Killam has impersonated him three times between October 3, 2015 and December 5, 2015 before the part being given back to Hammond. Long time guest Alec Baldwin began to impersonate Trump on October 1, 2016 and has impersonated by him through his time as President, except for December 10, 2016, where Trump was impersonated by host John Cena. Baldwin, who was known for having a spot-on impression of Trump, decided to stop impersonating Trump after the 2020 election. The current impersonator is James Austin Johnson, who took over in 2021 after Trump left office.
