Trump, who has just left Singapore after a historic meeting with the North Korean leader, was retaliating after De Niro spent the past few days publicly denouncing Trump.

Several news agencies pointed out that the president being critical of De Niro's IQ was ironic since his tweet said "to many" instead of the correct "too many". If so, we don't think this is gonna stick.

Representatives for De Niro did not immediately return a request for comment.

President Trump responded Tuesday to Robert De Niro's expletive-laden rant at Sunday's Tony Awards.

"I'm going to probably have to move there", De Niro joked on the day of the result.

De Niro later apologized after his torrent of abuse.

"It's no longer 'down with Trump, ' it's 'f-k Trump, ' " the 74-year-old performer - who won an Academy Award for playing a boxer in 1980's "Raging Bull" - said.

Oh, yeah, and he went ahead and nicknamed Robert De Niro "Punchy".

De Niro, one of the most respected American actors, twice used the so-called F-Bomb against Trump on Sunday, prompting loud applause from the audience of theatre actors, directors and producers at Radio City Music Hall.

Hell, the man has appeared in Heat, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Deer Hunter and countless others, but you would think that his recent "Fuck Trump!" comments at the Tony Awards would be pretty low on the agenda of the United States president - especially given the importance of his recent meeting with Kim Jong-un in Singapore. And I apologize to [Canadian Prime Minister] Justin Trudeau and the other people at the G7.
