Donald Trump 'upset' over Saturday Night Live skit portraying Stephen Bannon as the Grim Reaper

Donald Trump's had a go at Saturday Night Live before, but the show's reportedly upset him with their latest skit. 

In the sketch, which was uploaded to YouTube, actor Stephen Baldwin returned to the show to portray the President making calls to foreign leaders, overseen by Bannon - who's played by a man in a Grim Reaper costume.

Watched by Bannon, 'Trump' appears to call the Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull (played by Beck Bennett), Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto (Alex Moffat) and German Chancellor Angela Merkel (Kate McKinnon) in quick session. 

It's clear to see why Trump might be upset at this - the skit makes Bannon out to be a dark, overbearing force who issues commands to and manipulates the President.
