Hollywood actor and outspoken liberal Robert De Niro is blasting President Donald Trump again, calling him “dangerous” and predicting he will “ruin” the United States.
“He’s beyond a horrible person. I went on television the day after he was elected and I said, ‘I’m willing to give him the beneﬁt of the doubt,’” De Niro said in an interview with British GQ.
“But he’s worse than we ever thought he would be.”
“He’s an idiot. He’s a fool. He’s a buffoon.”
“He’s silly. He’s tacky.”
“He’s dangerous,” De Niro went on.

In the interview, De Niro blamed fans of Trump’s old reality TV program “The Apprentice” for helping to create what the actor says is a “monster” in the White House.
“That stupid show ‘The Apprentice’ — people bought it,” De Niro said.
“They buy into it … They created a monster.”
When the actor was asked if Trump has “blood on his hands” for the shooting in El Paso, Texas, De Niro said he firmly believes that he does.
“Yeah. I think he does. And everyone is realizing that now, more and more,” said the star of the iconic crime drama “Goodfellas.”
“It’s so preposterous that the NRA has a grip on the Republicans. It’s all about money.”
“They’re beyond shame. Those [gunmen] are crazy people, but they’re inspired by Trump and what he’s allowed,” De Niro added.
“It’s all subtle but it’s all there. He’s allowed it. He starts it. He encourages it.”
Insulting Trump is nothing new for De Niro.
This past Monday, the actor told the U.K.’s Guardian, “We have a real, immediate problem in that we have a gangster president who thinks he can do anything he wants … The problem is, if he actually gets away with it, then we all have a problem.”
“The gall of the people around him who actually defend him, these Republicans, is appalling, and we must do something about it,” De Niro added.

President Trump, however, isn’t afraid to fire back.
In June of 2018, Trump tweeted that De Niro was a “very low IQ individual.”
“Robert De Niro, a very low IQ individual, has received [too] many shots to the head by real boxers in movies,” Trump wrote in a since-deleted tweet.
“I watched him last night and truly believe he may be ‘punch drunk.’”
“I guess he doesn’t realize the economy is the best it’s ever been with employment being at an all-time high, and many companies pouring back into our country,” Trump continued.
“Wake up, Punchy!” Trump finished.
