While the rest of civilization is hotly anticipating Harrison Ford’s return as Han Solo in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said the actor’s turn as the American president in “Air Force One” is his preferred Ford role.

“My favorite was Harrison Ford on the plane,” Trump told the New York Times. “I love Harrison Ford – and not just because he rents my properties. He stood up for America.”

Ford played U.S. President James Marshall in the 1997 flick, delivering the famous line, “Get off my plane” to a Russian hijacker.

When an Australian morning show host relayed Trump’s praise, however, Ford wasn’t having it.

“It’s a movie, Donald. It was a movie,” Ford said. “It’s not like this in real life. But how would you know?”

Ford feigned confusion when the host, Angela Bishop, brought up Trump’s presidential bid.

“President? Oh, I thought it was resident,” he said. “So, he’s not only going to live there, he’s going to run the show? That’s … not so much, no. I don’t think so.”

Safe to say Ford didn’t return the love.
