“I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behaviour of my president,”

De Niro said, winning big cheers from the dozens who turned up for the groundbreaking ceremony.

Robert De Niro, fresh off the Tony Awards stage where he verbally attacked the U.S. president, is now apologizing for Donald Trump’s behaviour following the G7 summit.

De Niro, speaking Monday in downtown Toronto where he’s launching a major development alongside celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa, called Trump’s behaviour “a disgrace.”

It’s a disgrace … it’s disgusting,’ De Niro says at opening of Nobu development in

De Niro, a staunch Trump opponent, had a bigger stage to lash out at: Sunday night’s Tony Awards in New York City.

De Niro dropped a couple of F-bombs before raising his arms and encouraging the crowd to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.

“First, I wanna say, ‘f–k Trump,'” De Niro said. “It’s no longer ‘Down with Trump,’ it’s ‘f–k Trump.'”

The CBS television audience heard dead silence instead of De Niro’s comments, The Associated Press reported.

De Niro, in an interview with CBC Toronto following the news conference, said he doesn’t see himself as a political person, but he is angry and frustrated with Trump’s behaviour.

“I have no choice but to speak out,” he said, before admitting his comments just add to the recent war of words.

Still, De Niro says he hopes more people will speak out against Trump.

“This guy just is a jerk,” De Niro said.
