“The virus in the US began in January of 2017,” the actor tweeted. “The vaccine arrives in November.”
Baldwin, who received acclaim for his portrayals of Trump on Saturday Night Live, is a frequent critic of the president. His most recent swipe was tweeted from the account for the Hilaria and Alec Foundation.
While most of the foundation’s Twitter feed is dedicated to supporting the performing arts, Baldwin has used it more recently to attack the president.
Previous tweets include one calling Trump a “psycho”, and other that he would get people killed.
Baldwin’s mention of the “vaccine” arriving in November is a reference to the forthcoming presidential election.
In February, he made a similar dig when he called Trump the “pandemic that threatens the world”.
In an appearance on The Howard Stern Show, Baldwin said he and his wife, Hilaria, avoid discussing coronavirus in front of their four children to avoid “contaminating them with fear”.
“My wife and I, we adjourn to another room, we don’t talk about the nuts and bolts in front of the kids,” Baldwin explained.
“No point in contaminating them with fear and so forth. We want them to be kids and enjoy their lives and enjoy their day and that’s it.”
