The new show, which Sacha has been secretly filming undercover for a year, looks as if it's going to take some serious potshots at USA politics, which means Trump's likely to be in the firing line.

In a teaser trailer, former USA defense secretary Dick Cheney is pictured signing what is described as a water-boarding kit, and saying, "I hope you'll tune in next week for an interview with me".

Vulture, meanwhile, has revealed that the show will be titled, "Who Is America? having spotted posters in Brooklyn which say, "You've been warned" and appear to show Sacha Baron Cohen peeking out with sunglasses on".

SACHA Baron Cohen has given fans a tantalising first glimpse at what may be his most audacious project yet, premiering on Stan in only a few days' time. Behind the elaborate setup is a genuine quest for the truth about people, places and politics.

Sacha Baron Cohen, the man who has created some of the most infamous film characters of the last century, has got a TV show in the works.

Trump Says Ireland Agrees with Him On Immigration
Mr Trump is hardly likely to catch a glimpse of the six metre giant orange inflatable blimp that depicts him as a screaming baby. Well, at least Melania Trump is spending her time in London - and maybe Donald Trump could take some learning from that.

Really, though, it would actually be kind of astounding if Cohen managed to pull off a Bruno-style man-on-the-street mockumentary-much less without anyone noticing-in the age of social media and camera phones.

Who Is America? is set to premiere in the States on Sunday 15 July, with no set release date for this side of the Atlantic just yet. Then, after a series of fast cuts that includes a anonymous bare butt, an elderly Dick Cheney is shown signing an empty gallon container, which a voice off-screen identifies as a "waterboard". "That's the first time I signed signed a waterboard".

Trump in the video also told Cohen to go back to school to learn how to be amusing.

Baron Cohen previously posted a teaser on July 4, featuring real footage of Donald Trump attacking him, followed by the caption: 'He's back.

Also in 2012, Trump told HLN that Baron Cohen was a "bad guy" and a "moron" that "nobody cares about". That series prompted a spin-off movie as well as Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan and Brüno.
