Trump has said he was the only person to immediately walk out of his interview with Baron Cohen's "Ali G.", but Baron Cohen has said he was actually there a comparatively long nine minutes.

Michael Cohen, the president's former personal attorney, told George Stephanopoulos of ABC News that his first loyalty was to his family and his country.

In a mysterious video posted to his Twitter account on July 4, Cohen appeared to announce his next project would be about Donald Trump.

Davis's hire was reported by The New York Times on Thursday.

The remarks marked a dramatic shift for Cohen, who once claimed that he would take a bullet for Trump, sparking speculation that he might flip on Trump and cooperate with federal investigators.

Cohen is also reportedly ending a joint defense agreement with Trump, which allowed the two parties' lawyers to share information with each other.

"Once I understand what charges might be filed against me, if any at all I will defer to my new counsel, Guy Petrillo, for guidance", he said.

Cohen has yet to confirm whether this means he is working on a movie about Trump, but it wouldn't be a surprise.

The actor and comedian posted a video on his Twitter Wednesday that promised, "He's back as you've never seen him before".

The clips, which features old footage of Trump slamming Baron Cohen, doesn't reveal much.

Some pundits view the move as a way of putting pressure on Trump and his associates to pay his legal fees or to pardon him if he is charged and convicted of a crime.

He was a crisis manager for Martha Stewart in the wake of her stock scandal and Penn State University after its former football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested for molesting children.

The whole project ended in a fiasco for Trump as it was the subject of several class action lawsuits that were settled in favour of the complainants to the tune of $25 million.
