Years before Donald Trump threatened to destabilise western civilization by running for the US President, he took a meeting with a young entrepreneur by the name of Ali G.
In an episode of the Ali G Show, Sacha Baron Cohen, in the character that made his name, pitched his idea for an 'ice cream glove' to an unimpressed Trump.
During an appearance on James Corden earlier this year, Cohen was reminded of the sketch and shared his memories of filming it.
"I was the first person to realise he was a dick."
Trump has always claimed that he saw through the ruse straight away and walked out
I never fall for scams. I am the only person who immediately walked out of my ‘Ali G’ interview

However Cohen counters that the interview with Trump actually lasted seven minutes which he confirmed to Corden is quite long for an Ali G interview.
