When Robert De Niro stepped up to the microphone at an event in Toronto on Monday morning, he had a few more choice words to say about President Trump.

However, film star De Niro may get the bulk of the questions after his big statement at Sunday night's Tony Awards.

"This f***ing idiot is the president", De Niro said, according to a transcript from New York Times reporter Sopan Deb. "It's a disgrace and I apologize to Justin Trudeau and the other people at the G-7".

At the Tony Awards over the weekend, De Niro took the stage at Radio City and called out "F*** Trump".

Fresh off of calling out the USA president at the Tony Awards and saying "F*** Trump", Robert De Niro has publically apologized for his president's behaviour at the G7 summit.

Robert De Niro has been a very vocal critic of Donald Trump, and this is not the first time he has used an award show to express his disdain for the president.

While it was hoped that the trip could be used to help defuse tensions over a brewing trade war between the two countries, Trump began firing off tweets lashing out at Trudeau nearly as soon as he left.

Trump's spate of Twitter tirades has seen a number of political leaders rally around Trudeau, including Conservative leader Andrew Scheer and incoming Ontario premier Doug Ford.

Kushner went even further than De Niro, calling Trump's presidency "the Hitler mistake" that put a "borderline psychotic narcissist in the White House".

The NY Daily News reports that the audience roared with applause and stood up in support of De Niro's profanity-laced tirade. "He talks about how he wants to punch people in the face, well, I'd like to punch him in the face".

"Sir, with regard to the comments in the news today, I have only two words to say: Thank you", Tory said. The article has a quote from some Broadway guy saying 'Who's gonna argue with De Niro?' Ah, tens of millions, maybe.
