Emin is the son and business partner of the billionaire real estate tycoon Aras Agalarov.

Agalarov's father Aras, a developer, was involved with Trump in hosting the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow. The alleged footage was dubbed "pee tape".

The real Trump has appeared in an Agalarov video before.

Clinton is also shown schmoozing and partying with Trump, Ivanka and Agalarov, with the group playing and betting in a game of cards towards the end.

All the while, the singer croons: "I wish you could at least just be honest, I wish that you'd told me the truth".

But it also plays like a conspiracy thriller, with several shots of a shadowy figure watching surveillance footage on a panel of monitors - a possible nod to lurid allegations about the president in the 35-page dossier compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele.
