President Donald Trump told reporters on Air Force One that Sacha Baron Cohen tried to scam him years ago, Steve Herman from Voice of America News said in a tweet on Friday.

Cohen's new movie "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm" garnered attention this week as a scene from the film appeared to show Rudy Giuliani, a personal attorney to Trump, with his hand down his pants while in a hotel room with a female actor who was posing as a reporter. Giuliani says he was just "tucking in his shirt."

Additionally, a deleted scene posted to Twitter showed that the actress Maria Bakalova, who plays Borat's daughter in the film, was able to get access to the White House, alongside One America News Network journalist Chanel Rion, and meet Donald Trump Jr.

In the tweet from the Borat account, it says: "Trump very careful who he let into his events and house. No Covid test necessary – High 5!"

The president was asked about the movie and if he had security concerns related to the film.

"I don't know what happened. But years ago, you know, he tried to scam me, and I was the only one who said no way," Trump said, according to Herman. "That's a phony guy and I don't find him funny."

Trump added: "To me, he's a creep."
