Baldwin's Trump, playing for "Habitat for Hannity" (to help Fox News's Sean Hannity purchase "a second beach house"), hoped for the same deal the actual Trump proposed on Saturday: "deportation protections for some immigrants in exchange for $5.7 billion in border wall funding, a proposal immediately rejected by Democrats and derided by conservatives as amnesty", as The Washington Post reported.
"Five", Trump responded. "You want to pick briefcase five?"
Beck Bennett's Mitch McConnell tried to hide behind the briefcase when Baldwin's Trump called upon him, so they quickly moved on to Leslie Jones' Maxine Waters who reminded him that she could subpoena his tax records.
Baldwin's President Trump turned the deal down because it wasn't $5 billion and he "needs $5 billion because that's the first random number I said".
"Nancy Pelosi (Kate McKinnon) offered the president $1 billion, "and you say 'Nancy's my mama.'" Chuck Schumer (Alex Moffat) started by offering the president "whatever you want", but was talked up to "$15 and a pastrami on rye".
The camera then shows "SNL" cast member Pete Davidson wearing an orange Clemson sweatshirt and holding not one of the silver brief cases that contain deals on the TV show, but a "Crave case" from the fast-food restaurant White Castle.
"Oh Steve, I haven't eaten a hamburger in nearly 15 minutes", Baldwin's President Trump said.
"You ending the shutdown for a hamberder?"
Trump also listed two "measures to protect migrant children from exploitation and abuse", a "new system to allow Central American minors to apply for asylum in their home countries and reform to promote family reunification for unaccompanied children" detained away from their families in the United States. "I'm going to make that deal".
The skit ended with all three men staring into the camera and yelling the show's signature line: "Live from NY, it's Saturday night!"
