The comedian and filmmaker Sacha Baron Cohen used Twitter on Wednesday to tease what appears to be a new project focused on President Donald Trump.

Cohen shared a video labelled “A message from your President @realDonaldTrump on Independence Day” that featured footage of Trump sitting at a desk and mocking Cohen, saying the comedian should “go to school” to “learn about being funny” because “you don’t know s—.”

The video features superimposed text that says, “He’s back as you’ve never seen him before.” It concludes with “Sacha graduates soon,” followed by an insignia of Trump’s now defunct Trump University.

Already anticipating the project, Pamela Anderson, the actress and model who appeared in Cohen’s 2006 film “Borat,” replied to the video, saying: “I can’t wait for this … all in good fun on Sacha’s part.”

Cohen and Trump have a history of mocking each other, dating back to the early 2000s.

Cohen interviewed Trump on his parody talk show, “Da Ali G Show,” in 2003. Trump tweeted in 2012: “I never fall for scams. I am the only person who immediately walked out of my ‘Ali G’ interview.”

Cohen’s absurdist 2016 film “Grimsby” concluded with Trump contracting AIDS in a freak accident.
