Alec Baldwin as President Donald Trump on 'Saturday Night Live'

“I signed a tremendous travel ban. I didn’t read it, but I signed it,” Baldwin said as Trump.

It took Alec Baldwin longer than expected to brush off the yellow wig as President Donald Trump on this week's Saturday Night Live, but, as expected, the actor and 17-time SNL host did finally reprise his impression of the commander-in-chief.

Appearing on an episode of The People's Court in which he filed a case against the federal judges who opposed his controversial travel ban, Baldwin's Trump was asking for "broad, unchecked power."

When asked if he swore to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth, Baldwin responded by waving his arms and saying, "I'm good."

He then addressed the executive order. "I signed a tremendous travel ban, I didn't read it, but I signed it," Baldwin said. He claimed he wanted the ban reinstated and also to be paid "$725."

Beck Bennett returned as Russian president Vladimir Putin to speak on behalf of Trump's case. "He's my little American Happy Meal," Bennett's Putin said of Baldwin's Trump.

The case was resolved in favor of the judges, but Baldwin's Trump had a second chance on the advertised upcoming episode: "Donald J. Trump v. a manager at Nordstrom."
