If Donald Trump doesn’t achieve great success in the upcoming presidential election, Sacha Baron Cohen has a new gig lined up for the president.

After Trump called the English comedian an unfunny “phoney” and “a creep” in response to his buzzy new mockumentary, “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm,” Baron Cohen had a message for the president on Twitter.

“Donald — I appreciate the free publicity for Borat!” the actor and producer tweeted Saturday. “I admit, I don’t find you funny either. But yet the whole world laughs at you. I’m always looking for people to play racist buffoons, and you’ll need a job after (Inauguration Day on) Jan. 20. Let’s talk!”

On Friday, members of the press on Air Force One asked Trump about “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm,” which includes a controversial scene involving the president’s personal attorney, Rudolph W. Giuliani, as well as a sequence that shows Baron Cohen’s Borat wreaking havoc at an event headlined by Vice President Mike Pence.

According to Voice of America’s Steve Herman, reporters wondered if Trump was “worried about security breaches” after video showed actress Maria Bakalova — who plays Borat’s daughter in the film — entering the White House and interviewing Donald Trump Jr. while posing as a conservative journalist.

“I don’t know what happened,” Trump told reporters. “But years ago, you know, (Baron Cohen) tried to scam me and I was the only one who said no way. That’s a phoney guy and I don’t find him funny.”
