Alec Baldwin won an Emmy Sunday for his impersonation of Donald Trump on "Saturday Night Live".

Baldwin won for best supporting actor in a comedy series. 

Baldwin has pilloried Trump again and again on SNL, making fun of both what the US President says and how he says it. 

On Sunday night (early Monday morning, India time) he was quick to make another jibe about the US President. 

 "I suppose I should say, 'At long last, Mr President, here is your Emmy," Baldwin said from up on stage.

Baldwin was referring to Trump's frequent complaints that he was never honoured for his reality series "Celebrity Apprentice". 

Trump has not taken kindly to Baldwin's portrayal of him. 

He attacked SNL shortly before the US presidential election last year, tweeting: "Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!"
