Borat is back — and this time around, he supports Donald Trump.

The 2006 mockumentary “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan” is set to return with a sequel coming to Amazon Prime Video on Oct. 23 — 11 days before the U.S. presidential election.

On Thursday, Amazon released the first trailer for the new film — full title: “The Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan” — which features English comedian Sacha Baron Cohen reprising the titular role.
