Trump slams Robert De Niro as 'a very Low IQ individual'

Trump slams Robert De Niro as 'a very Low IQ individual'

President Donald Trump is swinging back at actor Robert De Niro, who cursed him out on live TV during the Tony Awards ceremony, to a standing ovation from the NY audience.

Trump caused a stir with his two tweets harshly criticizing the Hollywood star.

Trump then went on to brag about the economy in a follow up tweet, adding a final jibe: "Wake Up Punchy!".

Trump hit back at De Niro, whom he nicknamed "Punchy", using his preferred method of communication: Twitter.

Addressing Springsteen, De Niro said: "Even more important in these perilous times, you rock the vote".

De Niro also apologized to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after Trump called him "weak" and "dishonest".

On Sunday, Trump would have had other things on his mind and was on his way to Singapore for the historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

"F-- Trump", he said, referring to President Donald Trump.

The awards were broadcast live on CBS but the network had enough time to bleep out the Godfather actor's f-bombs.

While Trump's clapback is not out of the norm for him, Twitter is furious.

The crowd at New York's Radio City Music Hall cheered his remarks, though he was later criticized for stooping to Trump's name-calling level.

A few hours prior to Trump's tweets Tuesday, De Niro made a public apology - but not to Trump.

Prior to Trump's election, De Niro released a video in which he branded the Republican presidential candidate an "idiot", "national disaster", "bozo" and "embarrassment" to America.

De Niro apologized for Trump's "idiotic behavior" while in Toronto on Monday and said his actions were "a disgrace".
