Robert De Niro has let loose again on the President of the United States, Donald Trump.
After De Niro’s original remarks against Donald Trump following his inauguration, there has been a battle of words between the actor and most powerful man in the world.
In an interview with The Guardian De Niro calls the President a “racist” and “white supremacist”, doubling down on his rhetoric that Trump is the wrong man for the job of leader of the free world.
Later in the interview, De Niro draws parallels of Trump to fascist leaders of the past such as Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini;
‘I mean, the way I understand it, they laughed at Hitler. They all look funny. Hitler looked funny, Mussolini looked funny and other dictators and despots look funny.’
It is true that many people poked fun at Trump when he was running for President, including numerous comedians such as John Oliver and Stephen Colbert. The comparison from De Niro adds a darker turn to Trump’s premiership.
There is yet to be a response from Trump, the die-hard twitter user, however, all eyes are on the POTUS twitter account to see what his retort will be.
