In 2016, when Trump was the Republican presidential candidate, De Niro slammed him as "blatantly stupid", "totally nuts", and an "idiot".
"I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behaviour of my president", he said at an event on Monday to promote a Nobu restaurant, hotel and residence venture. Trump disavowed a joint G7 statement and called Trudeau "dishonest" on Twitter shortly after leaving the meeting, adding that the USA will look at automobile tariffs on Canada.
Although De Niro was heavily censored during the US telecast, his comments weren't bleeped during the Australian telecast. "It's no longer down with Trump, it's f- Trump!"
Robert DeNiro got right to the point when he took the stage in NY to present a Tony Award on Sunday night, but the television audience didn't get to hear it.
PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, "US Tariffs were kind of insulting" and he "will not be pushed around".
"America is being run by a madman who wouldn't recognize the truth if it came inside a bucket of his beloved Colonel Sanders Fried Chicken", De Niro said.
De Niro's expletive, also called the "F-bomb", was bleeped by the CBS television network for millions of television watchers.
