Robert De Niro traveled to Canada Monday for a hotel groundbreaking in Toronto and during the presentation apologized for President Donald Trump’s “idiotic behavior.”

“And I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president,” the 74-year-old actor told the crowd in response to Trump’s comments over the weekend calling the Canadian Prime Minister “dishonest” and “weak.”

The statement was met with large applause and cheers from the crowd. (RELATED: Robert De Niro Said ‘F**k Trump’ At The Tony Awards, And The Audience Went Wild)


“It’s a disgrace,” he added. “And I apologize to Justin Trudeau and other people of the G7 [Summit]. It’s disgusting.”

The slam came only hours after the “Raging Bull” star attacked the president Sunday night when he took the stage during the 2018 Tony Awards. It was censored in the United States, but not in Australia.

“I’m gonna say one thing: Fuck Trump,” De Niro exclaimed, as the audience gave him a standing ovation and cheers. “It’s no longer down with Trump, it’s fuck Trump!”

It is just the latest attack coming from the “Casino” star against Trump.

Last week, speaking at an awards ceremony in New York City for high school writers, De Niro said the president “makes up his own truth.”

“So what about the truth? What does the truth even mean today,” the actor explained. “I mean, if you’re Donald Trump it doesn’t mean anything.”

“If you’re cowardly Republican enablers in Congress you don’t let the truth stand in the way of pathetically clinging to power,” he added. “Our country is led by a president who believes he can make up his own truth. And we have a word for that– bullshit.”
