— -- Alec Baldwin, who reprised his role as Donald Trump on "Saturday Night Live," has responded after President-elect Trump weighed in on this weekend's show.

Earlier today, Trump tweeted about the show saying, "It is a totally one-sided, biased show -- nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?"

Baldwin, 58, responded in kind on Twitter, using his foundation's Twitter handle, to respond to Trump.

"...@realDonaldTrump Equal time? Election is over. There is no more equal time. Now u try 2 b Pres + ppl respond. That's pretty much it," he said Sunday morning.

Continuing, he wrote, "You know what I would do if I were Prez? I'd be focused on how to improve the lives of AS MANY AMERICANS AS POSSIBLE.

In a string of replies to Trump's original post, Baldwin listed a number of suggestions for Trump to do that from creating jobs to improving America's reputation abroad to encouraging people.

He concluded by writing, "I could go on. You want more advice, call me. I'll be at SNL."

Saturday's show was marked by the return of Baldwin, who played candidate Donald Trump before the election, in his debut as the president-elect.

The episode's cold open (below, in its entirety) -- set at Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey, where Trump is holding meetings this weekend -- kicked off with Baldwin's Trump telling Kate McKinnon's Kellyanne Conway, Trump's campaign manager, that he could not have won the election without her.

"I think about that every day," she said, sighing. (McKinnon's legendary portrayal of Hillary Clinton was absent from the episode.)

The sketch also poked fun at the commotion caused by Vice President-elect Mike Pence's attendance Friday night at the Broadway musical "Hamilton," where he was booed by audience-goers. A star of the play, Brandon Victor Dixon, addressed Pence from the stage at the end of the performance, telling him, "We are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us."

In the "SNL" sketch, Baldwin's Trump said to SNL cast member Beck Bennett's Pence, I heard you went to see 'Hamilton,' how was that?"

Responds Bennett's Pence: "It was good. I got a free lecture."

Baldwin's Trump ends their conversation saying, "I love you Mike. You're the reason I'm not going to get impeached."

Former cast member Jason Sudekis, who played Mitt Romney during the 2012 presidential campaign, reprised that role during last night's episode.

The sketch poked fun at Trump and Romney's meeting Saturday, which has raised eyebrows considering the barbs the pair traded during the primary season.

Sudekis' Romney enters the office and said, "Hello Mr. President-elect. Thank you for taking the time to meet with me."

Said Baldwin's Trump, as he begins to shake hands, "Governor Romney, so good of you to come."

The pair then proceeds to shake hands for a bit too long without saying anything, to the point of it being awkward.

"This isn't going to work, is it?" said Sudekis' Romney.

"I don't think so," said Baldwin's Trump.

The sketch also pokes fun at Trump's perceived knowledge of global affairs.

After a military general meets with Baldwin's Trump to discuss the "secret plan" to defeat ISIS, the fictitious president-elect enters "What is ISIS?" in Google.
