He may have his hands full as a father-of-five but that didn't stop Alec Baldwin, 60, from claiming he would "1000 percent" defeat Donald Trump, 71, if he ran for President in 2020.

After playing a parody version of the US leader on Saturday Night Live, he revealed on Monday that he was confident he'd beat the controversial figure head in a race to the White House, according to the Daily Mail.

"If I ran, I would win," he told Howard Stern.

"I 1000 percent would win. It would be the funniest, most exciting, craziest campaign."

And it seems as though Alec's confession was only talk, admitting he wouldn't want the role of a President as he'd miss crucial time with his family.

"I don't want to miss summer - boy would I miss summer with my kids," he reasoned.

And although the Boss Baby actor isn't keen on running himself, he said he had a good feeling about the candidates in the next election.

"Somebody great is going to come up, I hope," he said on the SiriusXM show.

"I'd love to run for that kind of position to just have things be very common sense. There are so many things that this country needs to do that are so obvious."

And Alec isn't the only celebrity who has been speculated as a possible Presidential candidate.

Both Kanye West and Oprah Winfrey have been rumoured to be involved in the 2020 political campaign.

However, the talkshow queen recently denied she was planning on running - revealing she would only step up if she was given a clear sign from God.

"I went into prayer. 'God, if you think I'm supposed to run, you gotta tell me, and it has to be so clear that not even I can miss it'. And haven't gotten that," she told People.
