BORAT SUBSEQUENT MOVIEFILM (2020): Borat Gifts Teen Daughter to Mike Pence

Here is IMDb's vague plot summary for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020):

Follow-up film to the 2006 comedy centering on the real-life adventures of a fictional Kazakh television journalist named Borat.

Rotten Tomatoes elaborated a bit:

Released from prison for bringing shame to his country, Kazakh funnyman Borat risks life and limb when he returns to America with his 15-year-old daughter.

Wikipedia did a better job than IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes:

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan [...] is a 2020 American mockumentary comedy film [...] The film stars Sacha Baron Cohen as the fictional Kazakhstani journalist and television personality Borat Sagdiyev, and Maria Bakalova as his daughter Tutar, who is to be offered as a bride to Vice President Mike Pence during the COVID-19 pandemic and the 2020 presidential election.

However, on the Culture Gabfest podcast ("New Weird America" | OCT 28, 2020), Stephen Metcalf, a critic-at-large and columnist at Slate magazine, related the most relevant, to this blog, aspect of the film:

"In this film, Borat brings his 15-year-old daughter [...] to the United States to gift her, yes, to Mike Pence - the Vice President."
