Actor Matt Damon mocked Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump this week, by suggesting the United States build a wall on its border with Canada to keep immigrants from entering the country illegally.

While discussing his latest film The Martian, which debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival this past weekend, Damon took aim at Trump for his immigration ideas, one of which includes sealing the border with Mexico.

“I love it here,” Damon told The Associated Press in regards to his past work in Canada. “But, I’m really glad that we’re gonna be putting up this wall, you know, to separate these Canadians from coming. I think it’s a really good allocation of our resources.”

He added:

A big wall because, remember, they’re athletic. They’re an athletic, outdoorsy people so we’re gonna need a few storeys.

Maybe kind of like the Game of Thrones wall to the north. You guys are white walkers. We’ve gotta keep you guys out.

Trump has come under fire since announcing his candidacy in June, for declaring if elected president, he will seal America’s open southern border by building a wall.

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best…They’re sending people who have lots of problems,” said Trump. “They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people.”
