"Saturday Night Live" wrapped up its 44th season beginning with a choir singing "Do not Stop Me Now" from Queen, a phrase that the series ironically applied to Donald Trump's beleaguered presidency.

The president, portrayed by Alec Baldwin, presented the cold opening with optimistic proclamations, notably that the economy was "on fire".

"I will not tell you if it's a fire that keeps you warm or burns your house on the ground," he said.

Trump is facing increasing congressional pressure to reveal his tax returns and to introduce White House staff to the evidence regarding the investigation of special advocate Robert Mueller on the influence of the Russia at the 2016 election.
