Johnny Depp says if Donald Trump becomes president, he’ll be the last commander in chief to inhabit the White House.

“Here’s the thing,” Depp told a London television reporter on Wednesday. “If Donald Trump is elected president of the United States, in a kind of historical way it’s exciting because we will see the actual last president of the United States. It just won’t work after that.”

It isn’t the first time Depp has offered his take on the presumptive Republican nominee.

The Oscar-nominated actor — who was in London to promote his latest film, “Alice Through the Looking Glass” — portrayed Trump in Funny or Die’s mini-biopic, “Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie.”

The 50-minute faux film, which borrowed its name from Trump’s 1987 bestselling business advice book, was shot over four days in December and released online in February following Trump’s first primary victory.

Depp, who portrayed James “Whitey” Bulger in last year’s “Black Mass,” reportedly brought a team of makeup artists to transform himself into the controversial real estate mogul.

“I approached Donald Trump as what you kind of see in him when you really watch him,” Depp said in March. “There’s a pretense; there’s something created about him in the sense of bullydom.

“But what he is, I believe, is a brat,” Depp added. “He’s a brat.”

Trump, for his part, said he wasn’t offended by Depp’s portrayal. Trump, a former reality television star, is regularly skewered on late night talk shows and “Saturday Night Live.”

“I know the business,” he said in February. “I know the game, and I’m not offended.”
