On Wednesday, Sacha Baron Cohen posted a Fourth of July video to Twitter that seemed to tease a soon-to-come project inspired by his combative relationship with Donald Trump.
“He’s back, as you’ve never seen him before,” the message, presented as a Fourth of July message from the president reads.
The 40-second video (below) features real-life footage of Trump insulting Baron Cohen’s comedy, saying the “BOrat” star needs to go to school to learn to be funny. The clips ends with a message reading, “Sacha graduates soon,” followed by a title card tag to Trump University, the President’s now-defunct real estate training school.

Baron Cohen and Trump have a long contentious relationship dating back to a 2003 interview Baron Cohen did with the former businessman while in character as Ali G, which Trump claimed to have immediately walked out of.
During the red carpet for the premiere of Baron Cohen’s 2016 satirical comedy “Brother’s Grimsby,” the actor called Trump a hooligan.
Baron Cohen’s did not immediately reply to a request from TheWrap for comment.
At least one star is eager to learn more. “I can’t wait for this,” Pamela Anderson tweeted.
I can’t wait for this … all in good fun on Sacha’s part … but the other seems sinister, cruel and over reactive.
definately demands a clever come back . I’m sure that’s exactly what’s coming.
