President Trump fires back at Robert De Niro after Tony Awards rant

Specifically, Trump hit back at actor Robert De Niro over his pretty succinct slam of Trump during Sunday night's Tony Awards.

He said he would move to Italy if Mr Trump was elected, and the town where his great-grandparents lived offered him "refuge" when this happened.

De Niro delivered his latest anti-Trump comments while introducing Bruce Springsteen to the well-heeled audience there to see Broadway's best recognised.

Robert De Niro speaks onstage during the National Board of Review annual awards gala at Cipriani 42nd St, Jan. 9, 2018, in New York City.

De Niro later apologized after his torrent of abuse.

Trump has now responded to the Raging Bull actor, labelling him "punch-drunk". Get it? Though "Punchy" falls short on the quality scale as far as Trump insults go.

Ariana Grande, Pete Davidson engaged; Looney Tunes return; Kimmel vs Ted Cruz
The 24-year-old USA singer has been replying to fans tweeting her about rumours that she is to marry boyfriend, Pete Davidson . Pete Davidson's exes are seemingly weighing in on his whirlwind romance with Ariana Grande .

Trump's De Niro sentiment was expressed just one hour after he had tweeted, "Heading back home from Singapore after a truly awesome visit".

While De Niro's outburst received accolades from the anti-Trump #Resistance, it was the president's fans' turn to gloat after the twitter response.

"I guess he doesn't realize the economy is the best it's ever been with employment being at an all time high, and many companies pouring back into our country", he wrote to De Niro.

"I'm going to say one thing - f***Trump!" He returned to the ring in Grudge Match in 2013 and played a boxing trainer in 2016 movie Hands of Stone.

Yesterday De Niro apologised - not for his comments but on behalf of the United States president. During the opening ceremony, the actor apologized - not to Trump, but for him.
