Donald Trump is a “lunatic” who “doesn’t care how many people die” from coronavirus, star Robert De Niro has actually stated.
The Hollywood star, a veteran critic of the president, informed Newsnight it was “Shakespearean, the whole thing, you’ve got a lunatic people are trying to dance around”.
He went on: “They’re doing it in the [Senate] hearings a little more, attempting to state tactfully that this is what will take place, Fauci is doing that … it’s dreadful. [Trump] wishes to be re-elected He does not care how many people pass away.”
The United States has more than 1.3 million coronavirus cases and over 83,000 deaths, more than any other nation, according to Johns Hopkins University, which is tracking the health problem.
Asked whether Mr Trump’s base would vote for him anyhow, the star stated those advocates were “deluding themselves” by thinking Mr Trump appreciated them.
“He doesn’t care for those people, and the people he pretends to care about are the people he has the most disdain for,” he added.
New York City, where the two-time Oscar winner, 76, is from, has actually been the epicentre of the United States break out, however in contrast to his views on Mr Trump, De Niro loaded appreciation on New york city guv Andrew Cuomo.
He, the star stated, “has done a great job… he’s done what Trump should have done but he doesn’t have a clue how to do that”.
He even stated he would like to play Mr Cuomo in a motion picture about the pandemic
The city, he stated, “is kind of like a ghost town… it’s surreal… then you see other parts of the world, other great big cities of the world, are also in the same situation”.
“It’s interesting, it’s kind of like a science fiction movie but it’s real,” he stated.
De Niro has actually been a regular critic of Mr Trump because the former reality TELEVISION star got in the Oval Office in 2017.
After the star shouted “f*** Trump” at the Tony Awards in 2018, the president reacted on Twitter.
He stated: “Robert De Niro, a very Low IQ individual, has received too many shots to the head by real boxers in movies. I watched him last night and truly believe he may be ‘punch-drunk’.”
Mr Trump has actually been extensively criticised for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, having actually made it clear he is eager to get the United States economy moving once again by having the public go back to work as soon as possible.
Dr Anthony Fauci, America’s top leading contagious illness specialist, informed a Senate hearing today that hurrying to resume schools and organisations might have alarming effects.
