Sacha Baron Cohen, the comedy genius behind Borat and Ali G, is taking aim at Donald Trump for his next project.

The change on Michael Cohen's Twitter and LinkedIn comes four days after he publicly cut ties to Trump in a rare interview.

Against the backdrop of an American flag, the words "A message from Donald J. Trump" then flash up on screen.

Sacha Baron Cohen marked Independence Day with a teaser trailer on Twitter.

Although Cohen's clip doesn't outright say it, the video implies that either Cohen or a character that Cohen created will go through some sort of education in a new movie or show, perhaps even Trump University. 'He ought to be fired immediately'. It concludes with the line, "Sacha graduates soon", followed by an insignia for Trump's defunct Trump University.

Neither Showtime nor Cohen's representatives have confirmed it, but the series is thought to be the project teased by Baron Cohen in a video released on July 4. Regardless of the truth, Trump heavily criticized Cohen after the interview, and it seems that criticism might have sparked inspiration for Cohen's new project.

While Cohen hasn't commented on the changes to his social media accounts, he's clearly distancing himself from the President. He also denied the President's claims that the Federal Bureau of Investigation treated him poorly when he was raided, calling the agents "respectful, courteous, and professional". As the Times notes, Mueller's appointment "authorized him to investigate possible links between Moscow's interference and Trump associates, as well as any matters that arose from the inquiry".

Michael Avenatti, Daniels' attorney, said earlier this week that Cohen's "loyalties still lie with the president".

He later told TMZ, "At the very least, what I did was expose how easy it is to infiltrate the White House". "Including paying off two women who alleged they had affairs with Trump and that Trump Tower Moscow deal while Donald Trump was running in the republican primary".
