Actor Alec Baldwin said that if he ran for president in 2020, he would defeat President Donald Trump "hands down". "I would absolutely win".

Republican strategist, Ana Navarro, told CNN's Brooke Baldwin that President Donald Trump's election proved that anybody in America could run for the highest office. "Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his awful impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony".

After doubling down on his hypothetical victory, Baldwin went on to say that his campaign would be "the funniest, most exciting, most insane campaign". "I would 1,000 percent win", he told Howard Stern.

"Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his awful impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony".

One user wrote, "the fact that he is so certain that everyone likes him so much to vote for him to be their president is a testament to the average arrogance of Hollywood actors".

Scientists warn against venturing too close to lava hitting water, saying it could expose people to dangers from flying debris. A part for repairs was expected soon, said Robert Ballard, science and operations officer for the weather service in Honolulu.

Baldwin did say, however, that he would love to run for that type of position.

"There are so many things that this country needs to do that are so obvious", he added.

In a previous appearance on Howard Stern's show Baldwin said he was also considering making a one-man show on Broadway featuring his Trump impression. "He said in 2017 that he would make a "good president" but didn't know if his family would want to handle life in the White House".

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.
