Robert De Niro Dropped Heavy Criticisms Against Donald Trump

During his interview with Stephanie Ruhle on MSNBC’s The 11th Hour, Killers of the Flower Moon star Robert De Niro expressed his anger at former US President Donald Trump. He said he’s tired of calling him names, and now he’s called him “genuinely a sick person.”

When asked if he would ever portray Trump in a movie, he immediately replied in the negative.

Never. There’s nothing about him — there’s not one redeeming thing in him that I can see. I don’t think they understand how dangerous it will be if he ever, God forbid, becomes president [again]. I don’t think they really understand.”

The actor further expounded on his thoughts and made comparisons with Adolf Hitler. De Niro claimed he fears that one day, Trump will become the leader of the country again.

Historically, from what I see, in Nazi Germany they had it with Hitler. They don’t take him seriously. Looks like a clown. Acts like a clown. Mussolini, same thing. These guys, I don’t know why, they look like clowns. Somehow people, that element of society, identifies with them. It would be chaos beyond our imagination. There’s no mystery about him. He’s right out front, and what he says is what it’ll be if he becomes president.”

The Oscar-winning star did not hold back when he called Trump a “monster” and stated that he has a scary hidden agenda.

It’s about right and wrong. Period. The guy’s a monster. It’s beyond wrong. It’s almost like he wants to do the most horrible things that he can think of in order to get…a rise out of us? I don’t know what it is, but it’s f—king scary.”

De Niro’s comments on Trump elicited divided reactions from the people. Along with the ordinary netizens, influential figures also gave their two cents on the issue.

Well, Trump was actually already president for 4 years and his policies bore no resemblance to those of Hitler, so this makes no sense. In fact, with the Abraham Accords, he made some progress towards peace in the Middle East, which was definitely not high on Hitler’s agenda.”

Twitter users also expressed their anger at the actor as they showed support for both Trump and Musk. Read their tweets below:
