De Niro previously said in an video for a non-partisan campaign called #VoteYourFuture: 'I mean, he's so blatantly stupid. He's a punk. He's a dog. He's a pig.
'He's a con, a bulls*** artist. A mutt who doesn't know what he's talking about.'
He said in the video: 'He talks how he wants to punch people in the face. Well, I'd like to punch him in the face.
'This is somebody that we want for president? I don't think so. What I care about is the direction of this country.
'And what I'm very, very worried about is that it might go in the wrong direction with someone like Donald Trump.'

De Niro also spoke about Trump on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday.
The talk show host asked: 'Are you still gonna punch Donald Trump in the face? Because you can now get arrested for that I think, yeah.'
De Niro replied: 'I can't do that now, he's the president. But you know, and I have to respect that position, though I, we all know it, I mean, anyway.'
He trailed off and chuckled.
De Niro said: 'You know, I just have to - we have to see how, what he's going to do and how he's really going to follow through on certain things.
'And as we even see now, in a lot of cities, there's a lot of people getting very upset and protesting.'
Kimmel said in the interview: 'I'm sure President Obama is speaking from his own personal experience when he didn't get a whole lot of support, and he's saying, "Hey, we have to… you know, we're all on the same team."
'And - but occasionally teammates do punch each other in the face.'
De Niro said, referring to Trump going to the White House on Thursday: 'Well you know, maybe [Obama] will when he sees him tomorrow.'
