Donald Trump may have an unlikely opponent in the 2020 presidential election.

In a surprise appearance on NBC's Tonight Show Wednesday, Austin Powers baddie Dr. Evil announced his candidacy with the slogan: "Make the world evil again."

Of course, Dr. Evil is an alter ego of Mike Myers who performed the skit for his fellow SNL alum Jimmy Fallon.

Fallon introduced the fictional character as the latest member of the Trump cabinet to be fired, reports Daily Mail.

He asked him what he was doing in the White House, and Dr. Evil responded: "Well, naturally I was going to be secretary of evil but Steve Bannon got that job."

Dr. Evil added that he was in the White House as "an ideas guy" and that instead of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, he'd suggested a moat filled with "spiky blowfish".

"And I didn't want the Mexicans to pay for it,' he said. 'I wanted Alec Baldwin to pay for it."

Dr. Evil was shown sitting in his Bond-like chair and wearing his familiar gray utility suit.

He told Fallon that "all the evil stuff" in the administration was his doing - except for deporting Dreamers.

"No, Jimmy, even I have my limits. I'm evil, but I'm not a monster," Dr. Evil quipped.

He went on to describe Donald Trump Jr. as "creepy AF", saying: "He looks like he's missing a facial feature. You just don't know which one."

Out of all the cabinet, he said he got on best with HUD Secretary Ben Carson, because "we were both evil doctors who didn't know why we were there."

As for his future presidential run, he said he's found the perfect running mate - a "man more hated right now than Donald Trump".

He then unveiled his poster and the slogan: "Evil/Zuckerberg 2020!"

Myers introduced the character of Dr. Evil in the parody movie Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery in 1997.

He reprised the role in two sequels Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me in 1999 and Austin Powers in Goldmember in 2002.

Dr. Evil was a spoof of classic Bond villain Blofeld, the head of the global criminal organisation SPECTRE, and hairless cat Mr. Bigglesworth was a send up of Blofeld's precious Persian cat.
