Former US President Donald Trump has issued a strong response to actor Robert De Niro’s recent acceptance speech at the Gotham Awards. Trump, who took to the Truth Social platform on Sunday, expressed his displeasure with De Niro’s comments and took aim at the actor’s career and personal life.
In his Gotham Awards acceptance speech, De Niro, an Academy Award winner, expressed frustration at the editing of his remarks, particularly those critical of Trump. De Niro highlighted what he perceived as a distortion of historical facts and truth, condemning the prevalence of lies, conspiracy theories, and what he saw as the former president’s campaign of retribution.
Trump responded to De Niro’s criticism by taking to Truth Social, the social media platform he has been associated with. Trump wrote, “Robert De Niro, whose acting talents have greatly diminished, with his reputation now shot, must even use a teleprompter for his foul and disgusting language, so disrespectful to our Country.”
Continuing his critique, Trump added, “He has become unwatchable both in movies, and with the FOOLS that destroyed the Academy Awards bringing them from one of the top shows in the Country to a Low Rated afterthought. De Niro should focus on his life, which is a mess, rather than the lives of others. He has become a total loser, as the World watches, waits, and laughs!”
The exchange reflects the ongoing tension between the former president and certain figures in the entertainment industry, underscoring the broader dynamics of politics and celebrity in the public eye. The war of words between Trump and De Niro adds another chapter to the intersection of politics and entertainment in the post-presidential era.
