Alec Baldwin as President Donald Trump on "Saturday Night Live."

Though Alec Baldwin sounded iffy earlier this summer about whether he would resume his Trump persona for Saturday Night Live, fans of the impersonation got a special treat during the cold open of Thursday's Weekend Update.

(Note: This clip is NSFW.)

Baldwin's Trump took the stage at the Phoenix rally identifying himself as the "tragic victim" after Charlottesville due to the media "reporting my entire remarks, even the bad ones."

He also bragged about the fact he "solved Afghanistan" and brought onstage the president's former chief strategist "Steve Bannon" (someone dressed as the Grim Reaper) for a "proper goodbye."
