Dominican Newspaper Apologizes for Photo of Baldwin Instead of Trump

A newspaper in the Dominican Republic that mistakenly ran a photograph of “Saturday Live” comedian Alec Baldwin instead of President Donald Trump has issued an apology, ABC News reported.

El Nacional explained in the apology on its website that the photo, which appeared on Page 19, had been sent by the Associated Press. Although AP correctly identified the photo as Baldwin, the newspaper’s staff did not notice and thought it was of Trump.

The mistake was not realized throughout the entire editing process.

"El Nacional apologizes to its readers and anyone who felt affected by the publication" of the photo, the statement said.

The newspaper ran the photo of Baldwin next to one of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in an article on Trump’s comments concerning Israeli settlements.

Trump has repeatedly mocked "Saturday Night Live" for its portrayal of him.

Deadline Hollywood pointed out that El Nacional’s apology could not have come at a better time for “Saturday Night Live," as it appeared on the same day that Baldwin returned to host the show once again.
