New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman on Thursday tweeted a statement from Davis saying he has spoken to Cohen "many times in the last two weeks" and that he "recognized his sincerity" in an ABC News interview that aired earlier this week.
Mr Cohen had previously said he was so loyal to Mr Trump he would "take a bullet for him". Sacha Baron Cohen, go to school. "Learn about being amusing". "Sacha graduates." A logo for Trump's sham educational program Trump University (for which the President settled a $25 million dollar class action lawsuit) is then shown. The video was a recording of Mr. Trump slamming Cohen years ago, calling him a "third-rate character" who deserved to be punched.
Way back in 2003, Cohen interviewed Trump while in character as Ali G. Trump, as expected, later tried to get away with a lie about being "the only person' to have ever immediately walked out of a Da Ali G Show interview".
In a resignation letter to the Republican National Committee, he publicly criticized Trump's family separations at the US-Mexico border, and people close to him told The Wall Street Journal and CNN he was frustrated Trump wasn't paying his legal bills - even suggesting Cohen was open to cooperating with the government and providing information on Trump.
The video is the only tweet on Cohen's social media account and has resulted in a ton of speculation over the Borat star's next project and how Trump University will play a role.
But in 2016, Cohen told James Corden that Trump actually stayed "for about seven minutes".
It follows news that Baron Cohen is reportedly working on a movie featuring O.J. Simpson, though whether this is the same project is not known.
Trump once boasted: 'I never fall for scams.
