Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has already said that he isn’t against putting former Alaska governor Sarah Palin in an official role in his administration should he make it to the White House, and during an interview on Friday night, it seemed as if the pair’s mutual admiration for one another hit an all-time high.

Palin, who was interviewing the businessman for On Point on the One America News Network, started out the segment by describing fans of the former Apprentice star as “Trumpeters” or “Trumpservatives” and praised him saying, “since the day he made the sacrifice to hit the campaign trail, voters crave the anti-status quo politician.”

Then, as he appeared from inside New York’s Trump Tower, the pair kicked off the 10-minute interview by discussing the economy and how to fix the tax code.

They moved on to talking about veterans (who Palin said have “respect for a truth-talker” like Trump). “One of the reasons I’ve always liked you so much, you and your family, you have that great connection [with veterans],” Trump countered.

Palin followed up by asking Trump about “idiots in the press” who she said come at Conservatives with “gotcha questions,” before bringing up Trump’s run-in earlier this week with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos, who she described as a “radical activist.”

“Where’d you get your guts for that kind of necessary confrontation?” Palin asked with a smile.

The conversation then took an interesting turn as the pair discussed religion. Palin asked Trump how he felt about reporters who ask Conservatives what their favorite Bible passage is.

“I love the Bible,” said Trump, who described his own best-seller The Art of the Deal as his second favorite book after the Scriptures. “That’s a very personal thing I don’t like giving that out to people you hardly know,” he said of his favorite Bible passage.

Trump then told Palin that he is “having a lot of fun” on the campaign trail, and ended the interview by throwing some praise back at Palin. “You are a terrific person,” he told the former vice presidential candidate.
