A frequent guest on “Saturday Night Live” will return to the show to debut his Donald Trump impersonation. The AP reports that the NBC sketch show will bring aboard Alec Baldwin to portray Trump opposite Kate McKinnon, who has been playing Hillary Clinton.

“NBC announced this deal Wednesday with a promo on social media, just days before ‘SNL’ begins its 42nd season and little more than a month before voters choose between Trump and his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton,” the AP notes.

Trump was previously played on the show by announcer Darrell Hammond and by Taran Killam, who has left the show.

As previously announced, Margot Robbie will be the guest host for Saturday’s season premiere, with The Weeknd as the musical guest.
