Newspaper mistakes Alec Baldwin for Donald Trump

Trump has repeatedly criticized Saturday Night Live

Published: Updated:

A newspaper in the Dominican Republic apologized on Saturday after accidently mistaking a picture of Alec Baldwin impersonating Trump as a real image of the US president and publishing it.

El Nacional ran a headline in Spanish that read: “Trump says settlement in Israel don’t favor peace” along with the photo of glaring Baldwin wearing a blonde wig pouting his lisp during an SNL sketch, alongside a photo of Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The newspaper posted on its website a statement that the picture of Baldwin imitating trump published on page 19 of “Donald Trump, president of the USA” was a mistake unseen by the staff.

“El Nacional apologizes to its readers and anyone who felt affected by the publication” of the photo, the statement read.

Trump has repeatedly criticized Saturday Night Live, and said Baldwin’s impersonation of him “stinks.”
