Robert De Niro apologizes to Canada, Justin Trudeau for Donald Trump
A day after Robert De Niro received a standing ovation at the Tony Awards for dissing President Trump, the actor was cheered again in Canada â" when he apologized for the Commander in Chiefâs âidiotic behavior.â
The âCasinoâ starâs comments came Monday during a groundbreaking for the high-end Japanese restaurant Nobu in Toronto.
âI just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president,â De Niro said to applause. âItâs a disgrace, and I apologize to [Canadian Prime Minister] Justin Trudeau, too, and the other people at the G-7. Itâs disgusting.â
Over the weekend, Trump refused to sign a closing statement with leaders from the other Group of Seven countries while blasting Trudeau as âvery dishonest and weakâ for threatening tariffs on the US.
âPM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, âUS Tariffs were kind of insultingâ and he âwill not be pushed around,âââ Trump tweeted. âVery dishonest & weak.â
Since then, Trump has come under fire for his comments against one of the USâs strongest allies.
On Sunday, De Niro dropped the F-bomb at the Tonys while introducing a musical performance by Bruce Springsteen.
âIâm gonna say one thing: Fâ"k Trump,â De Niro shouted, as the crowd went wild with cheers. He then added, âItâs no longer down with Trump. Itâs fâ"k Trump,â garnering more cheers.Source: Google News Canada | Netizen 24 Canada
