Harrison Ford Shuts Down Trump’s ‘Air Force One’ Praise: ‘It’s a Movie, Donald’ (Video)

”Star Wars“ actor responds to presidential candidate saying he loved Ford in the 1997 action movie because ”he stood for America“

Donald Trump loves Harrison Ford‘s “Air Force One” because Ford “stood for America,” but the actor has dismissed the praise, and reminded the GOP presidential candidate that he didn’t actually save the country from terrorists.

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

Last week, the GOP presidential candidate had told the New York Times that his favorite movie of Ford’s was “Air Force One.”

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

Ford was made aware of Trump’s comments on an Australian morning show, and the actor was quick to make a joke of the compliment — and Trump’s campaign.

“He’s running for president? Oh, I thought it was resident,” Ford said. “So he’s not only going to live there, he’s going to run the show?”

“That’s his plans,” the interviewer responded. “Us, not so much,” Ford said back.

Ford starred as fictional U.S. President James Marshall in “Air Force One,” in which hijackers seize the plane while he and his family are on it.
