Appearing on The Tonight Show Thursday, Baldwin warmed up his Trump impression going head to head with Jimmy Fallon — who does his own take on the 45th president.

Baldwin also took a jab at the controversy over Nordstrom dropping first daughter Ivanka’s products

"I got this suit from the Ivanka Trump Men's Collection at Nordstrom’s. They're having a big sale right now — 95 percent off on everything," he joked.

Thanks to Baldwin's take on the president and Trump himself constantly tweeting about how much he dislikes the portrayal, the long running sketch comedy show is enjoying its highest ratings in more than 20 years according to reports.
