After walking on stage dressed as the Republican candidate, Alec mimicked Trump's voice as he said: "I'm going to be so good tonight. I am going to be so calm, and so presidential that all of you watching are going to cream your jeans."

Answering a question about the economy, he added: "Our jobs are fleeing this country. They're going to Mexico. They're going to Jina," poking fun at Trump's pronunciation of "China".

Alec's Trump also claimed Clinton had broken his microphone, referring to one of Trump's complaints in the wake of Monday's debate.

He said: "My microphone is broken. She broke it. With Obama. They took my microphone to Kenya and they broke it and now it's broken.

"Can you hear that, it's picking up somebody sniffling here."

Alec's Trump also claimed he had "the best temperament, she's the one with the bad temperament. She's always screaming, she's constantly lying, her hair is crazy, her face is completely orange, except around the eyes where it's white".

The sketch also poked fun at Democrat Clinton, with Kate saying she would continue running for president "until the day I die. And I will never die".

Alec has guest-hosted SNL a record 16 times.
