Alec Baldwin wonders if Donald Trump tweet could be considered a threat

After Alec Baldwin’s most recent appearance on ‘Saturday Night Live’ impersonating President Donald Trump, the President sent out a tweet criticizing the actor’s parody of his White House Rose Garden announcement. Baldwin responded in kind shortly after wondering if Trump’s tweet could be considered a threat against him and his family.

Alec Baldwin for president?

The hotheaded thespian suggested he is interested in running for president against Donald Trump in 2020.

“If I ran for President, would you vote for me?” Baldwin began his tweet on Monday. “I won’t ask you for any $.”

He then said, “And I promise I will win. Beating Trump would be so easy. So easy. So easy.”

The actor followed up with a second tweet, writing: “These tweets save me millions in polling.”

Baldwin and Trump have long butted heads over everything from politics to the actor’s impression of the president on “Saturday Night Live.”

The two publicly spat in February when Trump sent a tweet criticizing Baldwin’s impersonation of him on “SNL” and the actor has responded by questioning if the president was directly threatening his personal safety.

Trump sent a tweet directly calling out “SNL” for being biased against his administration and Republicans in general.

“Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC! Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution? Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion!” he tweeted back in February.

Baldwin then responded to Trump’s tweet and asked whether or not the president’s comments counted as a threat against him and his family.

“I wonder if a sitting President exhorting his followers that my role in a TV comedy qualifies me as an enemy of the people constitutes a threat to my safety and that of my family?”
