After swearing at the US president during the Tony Awards on Sunday, De Niro decided to apologize to Canadian Prime minister Justin Trudeau for Trump’s “behavior.”
At a promotional event for a Nobu restaurant and hotel, De Niro said, “I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president. That’s a disgrace and I apologize to Justin Trudeau and the other people at the G7. It’s disgusting.”
The verbal attack came following what Trump described as Trudeau’s “false statements” on trade relations during the closing G7 news conference.
De Niro's latest rant took Twitter by storm with many people supporting the actor, while some expressed their irritation with his recent anti-Trump statements.
