Watch Robert De Niro’s no holds barred anti-Trump rant: “I’d like to punch him in the face”

Hollywood legend brands Trump a "pig", "a con", "a bullshit artist" and "a national disaster"

Robert De Niro has shared his no-holds-barred thoughts on Donald Trump in an intense video message encouraging Americans to use their vote next month.

Speaking straight to camera, the Hollywood legend brands the highly controversial Republican presidential candidate “a punk”, “a dog”, “a bozo”, “a pig”, “a con”, “a mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about”, “a bullshit artist” and “an embarrassment to this country”.

“He’s an idiot. Colin Powell said it best: he’s a national disaster,” De Niro also says in the video. “He talks how he’d like to punch people in the face?… Well, I’d like to punch him in the face.” Watch the full video message here.
