Sacha Baron Cohen dresses as Trump, crashes Mike Pence speech in ‘Borat 2’ trailer

A new trailer for a sequel to the Sacha Baron Cohen flick “Borat” shows the comedian dressing up as President Trump and crashing a speech by Vice President Mike Pence.

The clip, released Thursday, shows Cohen reprising his role of Borat Sagdiyev from the 2006 comedy, as the infamous Kazakhstani character travels to America again in an attempt to gift his daughter to “someone close to the throne” in the Trump administration.

The trailer for “Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm” includes footage of Borat in a Trump costume, carrying a woman over his shoulder and yelling “I brought a girl for you!” during Pence’s speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in February.

Some outlets, including ABC News, reported on the disturbance at the time, saying police were called in to escort a heckler out and that charges wouldn’t be pursued.

The movie was filmed in secret and details didn’t emerge until last month.

Buzz about the flick grew earlier this week when a Twitter account purporting to be the Republic of Kazakhstan posted a video endorsing Trump right before the president’s first debate with Joe Biden on Tuesday night.

Page Six previously reported that one subject Cohen couldn’t trick for his new movie was Rudy Giuliani — who called the cops on the star after he showed up to an interview in a pink bikini. Cohen, 48, reportedly fled the swanky Mark Hotel before cops arrived.

Giuliani later told Page Six: “I only later realized it must have been Sacha Baron Cohen. I thought about all the people he previously fooled and I felt good about myself because he didn’t get me.”

The mockumentary is set to be released by Amazon Prime Video on Oct. 23.
