Dominican newspaper El Nacional apologized on Saturday after mistakenly using a photo of Baldwin dressed as President Trump on “Saturday Night Live,” instead of the president himself.
The photo appeared in the paper next to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The photo “was placed as if it were the one of Trump,” the paper wrote. “El Nacional apologizes to the readers and to all those who felt affected by the publication.”
Baldwin has played Trump on the NBC late-night show since the premiere of Season 42, instigating frequent comments from the president and his affiliates.
Dear El Nacional, Alec Baldwin will be pleased as punch. But let's hope the Dominican Republic isn't added to Trump's banned countries list pic.twitter.com/vt4NJe4NJf
