The show saw British comic Mike Osman and US star John Di Domenico both dressed up as the new president of America ahead of his inauguration ceremony today.
One of the impersonators was in the studio with hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes, while the other was speaking to them via video link from America along with his “wife” Melania.
At one point the two Trumps were talking over each other and they seemed almost nonsensical and inaudible as they tried to out-Trump the other.
Many took to social media to hit out at This Morning over the feature and one person posted on Twitter: “#thismorning should get forced to apologise for this disgraceful rubbish.”
While another said: “Appalling Television to watch #thismorning #donaldtrump.”
A third wrote: “OMG, time to switch off…. This is horrendously awful! #thismorning #cringy.”

Meanwhile, a second said: “Them two #Trumps on #ThisMorning had me crying, That was funny as hell, The faces they were pulling was like a gurning contest! Haha.”
When asked about what kind of Commander-in-Chief he was going to be, the Trump in the studio said: “I am going to be the greatest president that god ever created and I got to tell you that I did meet him.”
He went on to tell the hosting duo: “I am not a racist and the reason I can tell you that is because I went to Desmond Tutu’s birthday party.”
