A newspaper in the Dominican Republic published a photo of Alec Baldwin's "Saturday Night Live" impersonation of Donald Trump instead of the U.S. president on Friday, prompting instant derision on social media.
The story in El Nacional talked about Trump's stance on Israeli settlements. It was accompanied by a photo of Baldwin in full Trump hair and makeup, alongside a photo of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The newspaper later ran a correction, apologizing for mistakenly using the Associated Press image of Baldwin.
But photos and screengrabs of newspaper page had already made their rounds on social media.

Dear El Nacional, Alec Baldwin will be pleased as punch. But let's hope the Dominican Republic isn't added to Trump's banned countries list pic.twitter.com/vt4NJe4NJf— Sharon Gibson (@SharonGibson3) February 10, 2017
