Aled Baldwin returned to Saturday Night Live on Feb. 16 to spoof President Donald Trump's recent declaration of a national emergency over security at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Baldwin's Trump first boasted about his recent successful medical exam (he still stands "at six foot seven, 185 pounds -- shredded") before focusing on the country's dire need to build a border wall.

“We need wall,” Baldwin’s Trump stated. “We have a tremendous amount of drugs flowing into this country from the southern border -- or, the brown line, as many people have not asked me to call it."

“That's why we need wall. Wall works, wall makes safe," he continued. "You don't have to be smart to understand that, and in fact it's even easier to understand if you're not that smart."

Next, the president took some "softball" questions from the press pool, including one from CNN's Jim Acosta. "Oh seriously, man, how do you keep getting in this room? I'd love to build a wall just around Jim."

The president also took a minute to introduce his new Attorney General, William Barr.

"Congratulations, this guy is going to do such a great job, but still he's working for me, so I give him three months tops. Dead man walking right there," Baldwin's Trump said.
