Hollywood actor Robert De Niro has criticized Americans for putting an “idiot” like Donald Trump in a position where he might become the US president, and agreed with former secretary of state Colin Powell who called Trump a “national disaster.”
De Niro had been enlisted along with several other actors to speak in a non-partisan video encouraging Americans to vote in the November presidential election. But the 73-year-old actor defied script and delivered a scathing rebuke of Trump, the Republican presidential nominee.
“He’s so blatantly stupid. He’s a punk, he’s a dog, he’s a pig […] a mutt who […] doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care. He’s an idiot. Colin Powell said it best: He’s a national disaster. He’s an embarrassment to this country,” the Raging Bull actor said in a video surfaced on Friday.
“It makes me so angry that this country has gotten to this point that this fool, this bozo, has wound up where he has,” he stated.
