Veteran actor relentless about Donald Trump's criticism
Hollywood actor, Robert DeNiro has not let go of his criticism of Donald Trump, who is now the president-elect of the United States of America.
DeNiro is one of many world celebrities who spoke out against Trump due to his divisive agenda if elected president.play
The actor's short video was an online hit after he was seen slamming the business mogul, making it clear that he won't like to have him as president.
That boat has now sailed, but DeNiro is yet to come to terms with the outcome of the US presidential election.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, he said, “I feel like I did after 9/11.
“We’ll just see what happens. There will be many, many, many, many, many people watching.”
DeNiro, in his viral video directed at Donald Trump called the politician “blatantly stupid,” “a punk,” “a dog,” “a pig,” “a con,” and “a bulls‑‑‑ artist,” among other things. He also said he’d “like to punch [Trump] in the face.”
It looks like he will not be getting his wish to punch Trump in the face being that the latter is about to occupy one of the most powerful and coveted position in the world.
The actor was quite aware of this when he said, “I can’t do that now — he’s the president,”
“And I have to respect that position, even though we all know what he, anyway.
"We have to see what he’s gonna do, and how he’s really gonna follow through on certain things.
"As we even see now, in a lot of cities, a lot of people are getting very upset and protesting.”
It is yet to be seen what will follow soon as Trump assumes the role of the president.
Many, especially Africans living in the US are weary concerning an earlier promise of the politician, who said he will send Africans living in the country packing.
