Though Trump said Tuesday he had been working "around the clock" to prepare for his meeting with Kim, it seems he found time to watch a clip of De Niro's rant.

President Donald Trump just fired back at Robert De Niro on Twitter, after the actor slammed him hard during the Tony Awards on Sunday night.

De Niro has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, and played the special counsel Robert Mueller on "Saturday Night Live".

"I'm going to probably have to move there", De Niro joked on the day of the result. Without any preamble, he said, "I'm gonna say one thing: F-- Trump".

Robert De Niro introduces a performance by Bruce Springsteen at the 72nd annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall in NY.

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

He famously said he wanted to punch Trump "in the face" during the 2016 US Election, called him a "f***ing fool" and the "baby-in-chief" in January 2018, and the following month said the US was now suffering from a "case of temporary insanity". (Pictured at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival).

De Niro a staunch Trump opponent, repeatedly dropped the f-word to an audience at the Tony Awards Sunday night while referencing Trump.

Rather than dwell on the momentous occasion as North Korea and the USA finally sat down and pursued a diplomatic means to avert the possibility of World War III, President Trump has taken a few minutes out of his busy schedule to have a pop at an actor that appeared in The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle.

Then on Monday, De Niro apologized to Canadians for Trump's insults after Trump called Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "weak" and "dishonest".
