President Trump had just four simple words in response to Alec Baldwin's arrest

When President Trump was asked for comment regarding the arrest of Hollywood actor Alec Baldwin for assault charges on Friday, he responded with just four simple words.

Baldwin, who dresses up and mocks Trump on Saturday Night Live, was arrested and charged for attacking a man over a parking space in the West Village area of Manhattan.

Liberal 60-year-old Baldwin has a history of arrests related to his anger management issues.

Responding to a reporter who asked him about the Baldwin arrest as he was leaving the White House, President Trump replied saying: "I wish him luck."

According to Sky News, the SNL star was taken into custody shortly before 2 pm local time on Friday after the dispute outside his home in Manhattan's Greenwich Village.

He was released two hours later.

New York police detective Sophia Mason said the 60-year-old actor "assaulted someone for a parking spot that they were both going for."

The star claimed he had a family member holding the spot for him as he tried to park his Cadillac Escalade when a man driving a Saab pulled up and took it, according to police.

Officers said the men were arguing and pushed each other before Baldwin allegedly turned more violent.

Police said the unnamed man, 49, was taken to hospital with jaw pain and is in a stable condition.

A witness told celebrity news site TMZ that Baldwin swore at the man during the row.

A post on Baldwin's foundation's Twitter account said: "Normally, I would not comment on something as egregiously misstated as today's story.

"However, the assertion that I punched anyone over a parking spot is false.

"I wanted to go on the record stating as much." 

Baldwin is well known for his impersonation of Donald Trump on the US TV sketch show Saturday Night Live.

After watching one of Baldwin's sketches in 2016, the president wrote on Twitter: "Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me.

"Time to retire the boring and unfunny show.

"Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks.

"Media rigging election!"

Baldwin also appeared in the Hollywood films Beetlejuice, The Departed and Glengarry Glen Ross but has acting roles have dried up in recent years.

The actor has a history of losing his temper.

He denied punching a newspaper photographer in 2012 who was trying to take photos of him with his then-fiancee Hilaria Thomas.

Baldwin and Thomas married in 2012 and have four children.
