Donald Trump isn’t known for holding back when sharing his opinions. Harrison Ford, too, is infamous for his gruff demeanor. This week, we found out what happens when the unstoppable force meets the immovable object.

In a recent interview with the New York Times, the Republican presidential candidate said that Ford’s role in Air Force One was his favorite on-screen president.

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

When asked for a response during the Star Wars: The Force Awakens press tour, Ford responded with incinerating brevity.

“Donald, it was a movie,” Ford told Australia’s Channel 4 News. “It’s not like that in real life, but how would you know?”
