Trump returning to the iconic Studio 8H also means NBC is reneging on its threat of severing ties with Trump — an issue that arose after Trump made those comments about immigrants.

But regardless, we are definitely looking forward to the Donald interacting with Taran Killam, who plays Trump on "SNL." And we've already seen Trump in sketch formats on "The Tonight Show," which have given us some good laughs.
