Bruce Springsteen on the Tony Awards

Robert De Niro said 'f--- Trump' at the Tony Awards and got a standing ovation

The US actor isn't done criticizing US President Donald Trump yet.

On Sunday, De Niro received a standing ovation from the audience when he dropped F-bombs at Trump with his fists in the air during the 72nd annual Tony Awards.

Speaking at the Tony Awards ceremony last night, De Niro, who was there to introduce the legendary Bruce Springsteen on to the stage, took the opportunity to say: "I'm gonna say one thing".

The actor also apologized to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Group of Seven on behalf of Americans for Trump's about-face after the G7 summit concluded in Charlevoix, Que.

In two tweets that announced the end of US support for the joint G-7 statement, Trump claimed Trudeau made "false statements" during a prior news conference and went on to lambaste the Canadian leader.

President Trump called Mr Trudeau "dishonest" and "weak" following the summit on Saturday.

His economic adviser then went on CNN to say that Trudeau had "stabbed Trump in the back" with his comments on tariffs.

President Trump Is Still Very Angry With Canada's PM Justin Trudeau
You can't do. "Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade any more". Trump added that Trudeau's statements would " cost a lot of money for the people of Canada ".

De Niro, part owner of the Nobu Hotels chain, told the news organization after the event that he felt he had no choice but to speak out against the president.

Trudeau said Canada "will not be pushed around".

There may not be any angels in America, but according to De Niro there's at least one devil.

When asked about De Niro's remarks, Seawright said he probably would have chosen different words but seemed to praise De Niro for voicing people's "frustration".

"Bruce, you can rock the house like nobody else", said De Niro.

The network was airing the 2018 Tony Awards on a 10-second delay and was able to censor De Niro's comments on the live broadcast.
