Robert De Niro in The Irishman.

Robert De Niro has already made it abundantly clear just how much he hates the current President Of The United States Donald Trump.

In fact, the Oscar winning actor, who is currently doing the rounds promoting his turn in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, couldn’t help but recently drop two F-bombs on Sunday morning television when he was discussing Trump.

De Niro has once again opened up about his disdain for Trump and the Republican Party, telling the Guardian that he “can’t wait to see him in jail” because they “have to know they can’t get away with bullying us.”

De Niro, who in The Irishman portrays hitman Frank Sheeran, the man presumed to have murdered union boss Jimmy Hoffa in 1975, even went as far as to call Trump a “gangster president who thinks he can do anything he wants.”

When the topic of whether Trump might actually go to prison over the current impeachment inquiry arose, De Niro insisted he couldn’t wait to see him behind the bars, before then emphatically adding, “I don’t want him to die, I want him to go to jail.”

Interviewers can’t get enough of asking De Niro about Trump, because it has already been reported that the actor called him a “weird, twisted president who thinks he’s a gangster, who’s not even a very good gangster” during his appearance on Friday October 11’s episode of The Graham Norton Show.

“Gangsters have honour, you shake a hand and they have your word and you have theirs and that’s it,” he continued. “But with this guy, it’s not the case.”

While we wait with bated breath for updates on whether Trump might actually get booted out of the White House, make sure to check out Robert De Niro in The Irishman when it is released in select UK cinemas on November 8.
