— -- Stephen Baldwin has been behind now-President-elect Donald Trump from Day 1.

The actor stopped by "Good Morning America" this morning to discuss Trump's election victory and the protesters he witnessed while staying in the Trump Hotel on Nov. 9.

"It really freaked me out because I can be all happy or excited about the outcome, but then it was like a wave of reality to say there's folks out there that still don't agree with all this," Baldwin said. "[I] saw a lot of young people out there that you can see, it was a lot of the messaging from the media that was driving their anger and I'm just going to be praying that everybody comes together and really gives Mr. Trump an opportunity to do the right thing and create the change for even those people who doubted him."

He added: "Before the election, I said, 'Let's focus on who's the right person.' That decision has been made. Now we have to do our best to just continue to positively try to do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

Baldwin also attended Trump's recent victory party where people were in "shock" about the stunning win, he said.

"It's an anomaly. We've never seen this before, this type of a victory," Baldwin said. "Rand Paul said something two days ago that was amazing. He said, 'You know, you got your East Coast with the Wall Street, your West Coast with the Hollywood folks and now you got a whole lot of people in between all that, that just demonstrated how they're feeling.' For me, it's like I said, last night as much as I wanted to go out and say to a bunch of young people [protesters], 'Hey, stop. Can't we all just get along?' I realized that I have to respect those people."

Baldwin, whose brother Alec famously plays Trump on "Saturday Night Live," said he never doubted the Republican candidate coming out on top.

"I had a fun conversation with Alec a couple weeks back ... he said, 'So your boy's basically kind of handing us this election, don't you think?'" Baldwin recalled. "I went, 'I got a funny feeling you need to be more prepared for a Trump president than I do a Hillary [Clinton] president.'"
