Hollywood actor-producer Robert De Niro slammed US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in a video that aired on Friday on Megyn Kelly’s “The Kelly File”. The veteran Hollywood actor said that he’d ‘like to punch’ Donald Trump in the face as he urged US citizens to ‘vote for their future.’

The video recorded by Anonymous content as part of their campaign #VoteYourFuture starts with De Niro name-calling Trump as ‘blatantly stupid’, ‘a punk’, ‘a pig’, ”a dog’, ‘an idiot’ and ‘a mutt’. The actor called the Republican candidate a ‘national disaster’ and an ’embarrassment for the country.’

“It makes me so angry that this country has gotten to this point that this fool, this bozo has wound up where he has,” De Niro said in the video.

Responding to the question asked by the director of the video, “What do you care about”, De Niro said he is worried about the direction the country will take under the leadership of Trump.

Due to the strong and ‘abusive’ anti-Trump rhetoric in the video, the producers chose to not use the video as part of their campaign. De Niro is not the only Hollywood star that has openly criticised Trump. Last month, several Hollywood celebrities including actors Don Cheadle, Robert Downey Jr., Neil Patrick Harris, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Martin Sheen made anti-Trump remarks in a video, sponsored by Save The Day and and urged Americans to vote in the election November 8.

Trump, who has filled his election campaign so far with often divisive rhetoric, faces off against Democratic candidate and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton in the general election.

    Potential danger of Donald trump there. Real danger of Modi here. Both have the same pea brain. The same bombast and the same ignorance of geopolitical history.

                Manu smriti does not ask believers to war on non-believers. Read it first

                  Donald Trump may not be wisest, but he is honest and right about perils of Islam and Jihad, a global problem of 21st century
