Actor Sacha Baron Cohen’s new film Borat 2 has been a stir in the United States.
The film became a topic of discussion even before its premiere, as in one scene, President Donald Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giulianin, 76, is seen pushing his hands into his pants while in the same hotel room as a woman depicting a minor.
Giuliani has denied that his actions had questionable intentions, and now President Trump has also shoved his spoon into the soup.
The president was asked, according to the Hollywood Reporter, about the new film and Sacha Baron Cohen on Friday when he was interviewing reporters.

The president’s response quickly spread on Twitter, where it was reported by journalist Steve Herman.
- I do not know what happened.
Years ago, he tried to fool me too.
I was the only one who said it wouldn’t work.
He's a hypocritical guy.
I don't think he's funny at all.
All I know about him is that he tried to trick me.
He came to the scene pretending to be from the BBC.
I thought he was weird, Trump commented, according to Herman.
Cohen did not remain silent in the face of the president’s critical comment, but soon posted his own snap answer on Twitter.
- Donald - I appreciate you giving Borat free publicity!
I admit I don’t find you funny either.
Nevertheless, the whole world is laughing at you.
I’m always looking for people who could play racist clowns, and you need a new dune on January 20th.
So let's talk in a miracle!
Cohen shook the president.
In his message, Cohen referred to the upcoming presidential election.
The presidential election will be held in the United States on November 3.
Trump hasn't replied to Cohen's Tweet yet.
Instead, Cohen’s response has spread like wildfire on social media.

Trump’s friend and personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani is seen in the film in a stir that has agreed to be interviewed by “Borat’s Daughter”.
“Minor Daughter” is played by actress Maria Bakalova in the film.
Giuliani thinks he is giving an interview to a fake conservative TV channel.
After the interview, Borat’s daughter suggests the duo still go for drinks in her hotel room.
According to press reports, the film shows a scene in which Giuliani is sitting on a bed in a hotel room while her daughter is stripping her of the microphone used in the interview.
Soon the situation escalates when 76-year-old Giuliani leans back on the bed back to a lying position.
Giuliani then pushes his hand into his pants.

At this point, Borat, played by Sacha Baron Cohen, rushes into a room equipped with hidden cameras.
- She's 15 years old.
He’s way too old for you, Borat shoots in a joking tone.
Giualini has denied all allegations that he acted improperly.
- I lean back to fix my shirt inside my pants.
At that point, a picture has been taken that completely distorts the situation.
I straighten my shirt and assure you that’s the only thing I was doing, Giuliani roared.
The film was released on Amazon’s video service on Friday, October 23rd.
