The 50-year-old, a staunch Trump supporter, appeared on Good Morning America and told the hosts that he had a “fun” meeting with his anti-Trump brother ahead of Trump’s shocking win.
“I had a fun conversation with Alec a couple weeks back where, literally it was at his house … and he said, ‘So, you’re boy’s kind of, basically, handing us this election. Don’t you think?” Baldwin said.
“And I went, ‘I got a funny feeling you need to be more prepared for a Trump president than I do a Hillary [Clinton] president.’ ”
Trump, 70, defeated Democratic nominee Clinton, 68, in Tuesday’s election. Trump’s victory proved to be a shocking disappointment for thousands across the nation, with many taking to the streets to protest the business mogul who has been accused of making racist, sexist, xenophobic and divisive comments during his campaign.
Baldwin said he stayed at a Trump Tower Wednesday night, and witnessed one of the protests.
“It really freaked me out because I can be all happy or excited about the outcome,” he said. “But then it was like a wave of reality to say, like, there’s folks out there that still don’t agree with all this.”
He added: “This is what makes the country so amazing is right now we the people, all of us, have an amazing opportunity to demonstrate the greatness of our freedom and our vote and our opportunity to really do our best to try to pay it forward and do the right thing and … if you agree or not, the cool thing to do is really give Mr. Trump the opportunity.”

Baldwin came under fire from his older brother Billy, who called Baldwin out on Twitter for supporting Trump.
“If our father were alive today … he’d smack you in the side of the head for supporting Donald Trump,” Billy tweeted.
