The debate on social media rages on over a Dominican newspaper using an image of actor Alec Baldwin portraying President Donald Trump in a story on the U.S. moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Was it a mistake or was El Nacional trolling the president?

The photo has been “corrected” online, according to WCVB-TV, an ABC-affiliate in Boston, which suggests the Baldwin photo was accidental.

Either way, the incident provided social media users when lots of entertainment, particularly for the president’s critics.

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
