While flying out of Singapore early this morning, Trump tweeted: "Robert De Niro, a very Low IQ individual, has received to (sic) many shots to the head by real boxers in movies".

De Niro, who's been cameoing as Robert Mueller on Saturday Night Live, was in Toronto today to open his new restaurant with celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Canadian Nobu.

Mr Trump said he had watched a clip of the incident and tweeted he believed De Niro "may be punch-drunk" in reference to De Niro's film roles depicting boxers. If so, we don't think this is gonna stick.

De Niro was introducing Bruce Springsteen, who is starring in a Broadway production of his own, which has sold out tickets for months.

"I'm going to probably have to move there", De Niro joked on the day of the result. "It's f-- Trump." He did not elaborate on his comment.

After De Niro's comments went viral Sunday night, CBS quickly responded as well. In January of this year, the actor called Trump a "f**king idiot" in a profanity-laced rant.

De Niro, one of the most respected American actors, twice used the so-called F-Bomb against Trump on Sunday, prompting loud applause from the audience of theatre actors, directors and producers at Radio City Music Hall.

"I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president", De Niro said. "Wake up Punchy!" Donald continued.

The president is now flying back to the United Stats from his meeting with Kim Jong-un in Singapore aboard Air Force One.

"It's a disgrace. And I apologize to Justin Trudeau and the other people at the G7".
