Alec Baldwin plays Donald Trump trying to get ready for the job of president on "Saturday Night Live."

In what may come as a ‘yuge’ disappointment to many, comedian Alec Baldwin said he may soon stop playing the part of President Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live.” 

The comedian told Extra’s Mario Lopez in a sit-down interview that he’s considering retiring his uncanny impersonation of the president, which he gave life to back in October, because he’s not sure his fans can take much more.

“The maliciousness of this White House has people worried… that’s why I’m not going to do it much longer, the impersonation, I don’t know how much more people can take it," Baldwin said.

He added, “Trump just overwhelmingly lacks any sportsmanship, he remains, bitter, and angry, and you just want to look at him and go, ‘You won!'”

But for fans who will miss Baldwin's mockery of the president, he has another outlet to let his creative juices spill.

He recently announced he's teaming up with author Kurt Andersen  to work on the satirical book "You Can't Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year as President Donald J. Trump."
