Saturday Night Live has had some fun mocking  Donald Trump recently, but now it will truly play the Trump card this election season.

The leading contender for the Republican presidential nomination will host SNL on Nov. 7, NBC announced on Tuesday. Sia will serve as the show’s musical guest.

Trump previously hosted the late-night variety/sketch series in 2004.

The gig marks another return to NBC for Trump, who hosted The Apprentice for a decade before the network cut ties with him earlier this year. He appeared on The Tonight Show last month and has given interviews on Meet The Press.

Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton popped up on the Oct. 3 show of SNL, playing opposite Clinton impersonator Kate McKinnon.
