In the episode, Alfonso Ribeiro’s character Carlton was so excited to see Trump, he fainted. Ribeiro, on the other hand, feels differently about “the Donald” now.
The 45-year-old actor recently sat down with PEOPLE, where he reflected on the experience.
“I look at anything I’ve done on TV as acting,” he explained. “So that’s clearly that character and his opinions there.”
“Back then, you could love the Donald,” he continued. “Right now, I have a little different opinion of him. I try to stay away from the Donald.”

Although the America’s Funniest Home Videos host doesn’t see eye-to-eye with Trump, he thinks highly of the businessman-turned-politician’s ex-wife Maples.
“I saw Marla at the premiere this year of Dancing with the Stars and she’s wonderful,” Ribeiro said. “I enjoyed talking with her — she’s amazing.”
