American actor Alec Baldwin is co-writing a satirical book about US President Donald Trump.

The star - who is known for his impersonation of Mr Trump on sketch show Saturday Night Live - is teaming up with author Kurt Andersen on You Can't Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story Of My Fantastic First Year As President Donald J Trump, Penguin Press announced.

The book is due to be released on November 7, almost a year after Mr Trump was elected.

Baldwin, 58, started mocking Mr Trump on Saturday Night Live during the presidential campaign.

In December, Mr Trump hit back, writing on Twitter: "Just tried watching Saturday Night Live - unwatchable!

"Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad."

Baldwin is also writing his memoir Nevertheless, which will be unveiled in April.
