While the first trailer for "American Horror Story: Cult" is packed with creepy clowns and a freaky Evan Peters, it's Donald Trump who gets the biggest scream of the clip.

The new footage, which FX debuted on its AHSCult.com website, kicks off with Sarah Paulson's character freaking the hell out over the former reality star's presidential victory on Election Night. A blue-haired Peters, however, seems ecstatic about the news and starts humping his television.

Apparently, The Donald's win sets off Paulson's fear of clowns. "Since election night it has all been getting so much worse," her character tells a therapist played by Cheyenne Jackson.

The rest of the clip is packed with some terrifying circus performers, a nefarious Billie Lourd and references to Twisty the Clown from "Freak Show."

"If you get people scared enough, they will set the world on fire," Peters' menacingly adds at the end of the clip.

Emma Roberts, Lena Dunham, Colton Haynes, Adina Porter and Billy Eichner are all confirmed to appear as well. "Cult" premieres September 5 on FX.
