The actor then compared the character he played in the 1976 movie “Taxi Driver” to Trump.

“One of the things to me was just the irony at the end [of the movie],” he added. “[Bickle] is back driving a cab, celebrated, which is kind of relevant in some way today, too. People like Donald Trump, who shouldn’t be where he is so … God help us.”

De Niro then went after the media for giving the Republican presidential nominee more attention than they should have but praised them for recently pulling back.

“Come on, Donald, this is ridiculous, this is nuts, this is insane.”
