There are clues to what the series would be about in Baron Cohen's video, titled "a message from your President Donald Trump on Independence Day", that included a clip of Trump dissing the comedian, saying he should "go to school" to "learn about being amusing".

It has previously been reported that Baron Cohen is making a film called Greed, about the lavish lifestyles of the super rich. You don't know [expletive]", Trump continues in the clip right before another message appears saying, "Sacha graduates.

The man behind "Borat" and "Da Ali G Show" released a clip on Twitter on Wednesday that implies the president is the subject of his next project.

Baron Cohen is now shooting the Netflix series The Spy, where he plays real-life agent Eli Cohen, a spy for Israel in Syria in the early 1960s. Cohen's character will more than likely have exaggerated viewpoints that reflect the comments of Donald Trump, or jab at the fraud-related issues that Trump University has faced in recent years.

The video closes with the Trump University logo. He has not released a project since then, but has appeared in other movies and shows.

Cohen tweeted the video for the Fourth of July and led many to believe that he might well be planning a movie about Trump University. He tried to pitch him an idea about a gloves for eating ice cream.

But when it was announced Thursday that Cohen hired Lanny Davis, a former ally of Hillary Clinton, to be his new lawyer, it became clear that Cohen no longer sees himself on Team Trump. Later, the president boasted, "I never fall for scams".

But in 2016, Cohen told James Corden that Trump actually stayed "for about seven minutes".

In his last film, The Brothers Grimsby, Baron Cohen gave the President HIV, leading to a disclaimer in the closing credits that Trump "is not HIV positive" in actuality.
