Actor Alec Baldwin took his impression of Donald Trump to new heights on Sunday by ranting on Twitter about his political enemies.

The 62-year-old actor called Mr Trump a "maniac" on Sunday and suggested he should be buried in a graveyard for Nazis.

"Bury Trump in a Nazi graveyard and put a swastika on his grave. The majority of Americans made the right choice," Mr Baldwin said. "Trump is a maniac."  

Around the time Mr Baldwin made the post, Mr Trump was signal boosting videos from the "Million MAGA March" which took place in Washington DC over the weekend.  

The march saw tens of thousands of Trump supporters march around the city in support of the president's attempts to undermine American democracy.  

Mr Baldwin - who portrays Mr Trump on Saturday Night Live - has been an outspoken critic of the president since he first stepped foot into electoral politics.  

In April, Mr Baldwin likened Mr Trump's supporters to people with mental illnesses.  

"Trump has reached for, and nearly gained, a control of the federal govt unrivaled by other Presidents. He fired huge numbers of govt professionals," He wrote. "He steamrolled the Congress, whenever possible. And now this. If you vote for Trump again, you are mentally ill."  

It's also not Mr Baldwin's first time comparing Trump's presidency to that of Adolf Hitler's rule in Germany.  

"You wonder how Hitler took control of a once great country. For those of you too young to recall the War or its aftermath, simply watch how this GOP-controlled Senate behaves. Their sniveling fealty and lack of courage. And you begin to get it," he wrote.  

Mr Baldwin was born in 1958, more than a decade after World War II ended.

Earlier in November, Mr Baldwin joked that he would be happy to lose his SNL gig portraying the president.  

"I don't believe I've ever been this overjoyed to lose a job before!" he wrote.
