US President Donald Trump again attacked Alec Baldwin on Twitter, calling his Saturday Night Live act "agony for those who were forced to watch".

Baldwin often impersonates Trump for SNL and recently said the act was "agony" to perform.

Trump has never liked the Emmy-winning imitation and took the comment as a chance to further spar with Baldwin.

"Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony," he wrote.

"Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!"

Trump had to post the tweet twice, originally calling Baldwin "Alex".

Baldwin then launched a scathing attack of his own on the president, saying he was looking forward to seeing Trump impeached.

"Agony though it may be, I'd like to hang in there for the impeachment hearings, the resignation speech, the farewell helicopter ride to Mara-A-Lago," he wrote.

"You know. The Good Stuff. That we've all been waiting for."
