In the film, Sacha‘s iconic character is given the mission of delivering a gift to Trump‘s VP Mike Pence in order to save Kazakhstan from the disgrace it faced from the first Borat movie.
Trump was asked by reporters on Air Force One if he saw the footage and he said, “I don’t know what happened. But years ago, you know, he [Sacha Baron Cohen] tried to scam me and I was the only one who said no way. That’s a phony guy and I don’t find him funny.”
“To me, he’s a creep,” Trump added, according to Voice of America White House bureau chief Steve Herman.
Sacha retweeted an article about the comments and said, “Donald—I appreciate the free publicity for Borat! I admit, I don’t find you funny either. But yet the whole world laughs at you. I’m always looking for people to play racist buffoons, and you’ll need a job after Jan. 20. Let’s talk!”
