The actor Alec Baldwin reprised his role as President Donald Trump in Saturday Night Live in a sketch in which he poked fun at his arrest following a dispute over a parking space.

In the show's cold open at the weekend, Baldwin appeared as Trump in a comedy sketch set at the Group of 20 summit meeting in Argentina.

The sketch opened by taking a pop at Melania Trump's blood-red Christmas trees before Baldwin's Trump gets an update about the Robert Mueller investigation from Rudy Giuliani (Kate McKinnon) and Michael Cohen (Ben Stiller).

"I'm sad you're going to prison, Michael," Baldwin's Trump said to Stiller's Cohen. "You were like a son to me."

"Then why'd you make me do so much illegal stuff?" he asked.

"Because you were like a son to me," Baldwin's Trump responded.

When he hangs up the call, Baldwin's Trump continued: "God I haven't been this upset since I flipped out over that parking space", in reference to his arrest in New York in November arising from an alleged altercation over a parking space.

The final guests on the balcony with Baldwin's Trump were a shirtless Vladimir Putin (Beck Bennett) and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (Fred Armisen).
