A Dominican newspaper used a photo of actor Alec Baldwin imitating Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live” instead of a picture of Trump himself in a print article Friday.
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

The paper “El Nacional” used a photo of Baldwin in a full Trump get-up next to a photo of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a report about Trump possibly thinking of moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.
It was not clear if the photo use was a joke or an accident, but it was changed in the online article. Still, people circulated around photos of the physical paper on Reddit and cracked jokes on Twitter.
