US President Donald Trump has called actor Sacha Baron Cohen "unfunny" and a "creep" in response to his new movie Borat Subsequent Moviefilm. 

President Trump's comments follow his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani landing in hot water over his appearance in a scene of the movie. 

Speaking to reporters on Air Force One on Saturday, Trump said Cohen was a "phony" guy who tried to scam him.

Steve Herman from Voice of America News shared Trumps' comments to Twitter.

"I don't know what happened. But years ago, you know, he tried to scam me and I was the only one who said no way."

"That's a phony guy and I don't find him funny," Trump said before adding that he also believed Cohen was a creep.

"To me, he's a creep." 

Giuliani has responded to claims he was touching himself in the film via Twitter, saying he was simply tucking his shirt in. 

Following Giuliani's claims Cohen asked viewers to think for themselves when they watched the film as it was "pretty clear" to him what Giuliani was up to.
