While speaking with reporters from Air Force One on Friday, Trump was asked if he was concerned about security breaches after footage showed an actress from the film who appeared to be coming to the White House. He told reporters that he "doesn't know what happened" and followed up his response with a comment on Baron Cohen.

"Years ago, you know, he tried to cheat on me," Trump said, noting that Baron Cohen was disguised as a BBC anchor, according to a copy of the pool report US received TODAY. "He's the wrong guy. And I don't think he's funny."

The "fraud" happened 15 years ago, the president added, but he did not elaborate on it. "For me he was a horror," said Trump.

It is unclear whether White House officials knew Bakalova was an actress. USA TODAY has asked the White House for comment.

Fourteen years after the original "Borat" mockumentary, Baron Cohen is back as his most infamous role as the wildly rude reporter in the goofy, Scattershot sequel.

This time, Borat's trip to America – filmed during the pandemic – revolves around his teenage daughter Tutar. But this narrative serves as a fleetingly hilarious, often swing-killing filler between unsuspecting participants who are usually of Republican belief.

The clip released on Friday wasn't the first to spark discussions.

"I would say that if the president's lawyer finds out what he has done appropriately there, heaven knows what he has done with other journalists in hotel rooms," said Baron Cohen. "I just ask everyone to watch the movie, it is what it is. He did what he did."
