"I'm going to say one thing: 'F-- Trump, '" De Niro said at the Broadway award show.

"Good for him. I mean, it's Robert De Niro".

"It's a disgrace", he said in reference to Trump's recent behavior. He suggested the comments were insensitive to the fact that Trump was trying to look strong on his way to an important summit with North Korea and said there is a "special place in hell" for people like Trudeau.

The attack appeared to be prompted by what Trump described as Trudeau's "false statements" on trade relations during the closing G7 news conference.

The remarks from American officials prompted a former US ambassador to Canada to call for an apology, saying both Trudeau and the Canadian people were being subjected to "insulting and inappropriate remarks".

Trump responded on Twitter by slamming Trudeau as "very dishonest and weak". Trump advisers also ripped Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber.

The Oscar-winner, who has repeatedly criticised the president, reportedly chided Mr Trump while speaking at a ceremony for the Jimmy and Rosemary Breslin "American Writer Award" at the Tweed Courthouse in Lower Manhattan on June 8.

But De Niro went one step further and crushed all restraint. "When somebody is taking on Canada, they're taking Toronto on too ... but you won't hear any f-bombs from me".

In March, he called the president an "idiot" who "lacks any sense of humanity or compassion", People reported.

Robert De Niro was bleeped twice during the Tony's on Sunday night.

Online, left-wing sentiment echoed the admiration, De Niro's off-hand comment earned him the titles of "genius" and 'national treasure.' Others assumed the glittering Broadway crowd was the flawless representation of the entire American population.

At the Tony awards, De Niro launched an expletive at President Trump and pumped his arms for emphasis.

"This guy just is a jerk", he said.
