Donald Trump recently told the New York Times how he admired Ford’s role as the President of the United States in "Air Force One"
stating that:

“My favorite was Harrison Ford on the plane..I love Harrison Ford — and not just because he rents my properties. He stood up for America.”

In this interview with Angela Bishop, Ford was informed that Trump is a fan of his and likes the fact that he stands up for America, but he quickly interrupted and looked into the camera and sarcastically said this:


“Donald it was a movie! It’s not like this in real life, but how would you know?”

Trump was recently spoofed in this Star Wars parody where his speeches were turned into Darth Vader quotes.

Ford will reprise his role as Han Solo in “Star Wars 7” which is set for release December 18th. The cast and crew are currently on a press tour to promote the film. George Lucas was recently confirmed to be attending the LA and London film premieres of the movie.

Box Office analysts have estimated the film could exceed $1 billion in the US alone, which would make it the biggest release of all time. Star Wars merchandise is also expected to earn Disney a $700m profit on $5 billion of sales.
