The end is near for the role Alec Baldwin says revived his career.

In an interview with Extra, Baldwin said his impersonation of Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live” since September won’t continue “much longer.”

“The maliciousness of this White House has people worried … that’s why I’m not going to do it much longer. The impersonation, I don’t know how much more people can take it,” Baldwin told Extra’s Mario Lopez.

“Trump just overwhelmingly lacks any sportsmanship, he remains bitter and angry … His policies aside, which you can hate, I thought he would have just relaxed,” Baldwin added.

Baldwin’s uncanny impersonation has become a favorite on the late-night sketch comedy show, and “SNL’s” ratings have soared since the former “30 Rock” star joined the cast.

But the president doesn’t find Baldwin’s mouth-agape, Twitter-loving impersonation very funny, repeatedly blasting the actor and the show as “unwatchable” and “a complete hit job.”

Asked if he would fill in for Trump at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, Baldwin said it was unlikely.

“I don’t think it’s going to happen. I don’t think they want that, for their [prestige] and their integrity, I think a lot of people are thinking if Trump himself doesn’t come and face the music as it were … I don’t know what kind of program they’re going to have,” he said.

Baldwin told reporters Monday that his comedy career “did die” since concluding his six-year run as Jack Donaghy on NBC’s “30 Rock,” but he’s “being reincarnated. As Trump! Oh, God!”
