In a series of tweets, the president-elect's 'SNL' alter-ego said inauguration day is "the beginning of the countdown to when he will be gone."

Alec Baldwin is looking at Jan. 20 as the "beginning of the countdown" to when Donald Trump will be out of office.

Baldwin, who portrays the president-elect on Saturday Night Live, took to Twitter late Thursday night to express his thoughts about Trump's upcoming inauguration day, calling him "the most reviled candidate" in history.

"We are not far from the day when the most reviled candidate in our history will become President," the actor and vocal critic of Trump's began in a series of tweets.

He tweeted: "Unwanted by a significant majority of of voters. A man who has projected little other than an empty braggadocio and synthetic rhetoric about both his qualifications and plans but Inauguration Day means the beginning of the countdown to when he will be gone."

Adding, "And he will be gone. January 20. The countdown begins."

Baldwin's tweets came amid further drama surrounding Trump's upcoming inauguration when a dancer from the Radio City Rockettes, who are now slated to perform, took to social media to express her disappointment and fear of losing her job if she refuses to participate.

The president-elect's inauguration team added two more acts to the inauguration roster on Thursday, announcing the Rockettes and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, who will join America's Got Talent star Jackie Evancho on the Washington, D.C. stage. 

In a thinly veiled jab at Trump's ongoing struggle to attract top talent, Baldwin followed up his Twitter tirade with a Friday morning post saying he wants to perform AC/DC's "Highway to Hell" at the event.

Trump himself dismissed the "A list celebrities" who he claims are wanting tickets to the Jan. 20 event, saying on Twitter Thursday that they "did nothing for Hillary" and that he wants "the people."
