Watch Bruce Springsteen Perform "My Hometown" at the 2018 Tony Awards

President Trump responded Tuesday to Robert De Niro's expletive-laden rant at Sunday's Tony Awards.

Trump's attack came after De Niro denounced the president, saying "f**k Trump" at the 72nd Annual Tony Awards. He likely spent some time after his meeting with Kim catching up on the news about him back in the United States.

De Niro later apologized after his torrent of abuse.

With the audience of theater actors, directors and producers shrieking and rising to their feet in applause, De Niro said: "It's no longer down with Trump".

Nurse will be judged on his ability to guide Toronto deeper into the postseason before its core passes its prime. He is the franchise's all-time leader in wins, winning percentage, games coached and playoff games coached (51).

"Robert De Niro, a very Low IQ individual, has received [too] many shots to the head by real boxers in movies", Trump wrote on Twitter. "I watched him last night and truly believe he may be 'punch-drunk, '" the leader of the free world tweeted.

De Niro, a noted liberal, has been increasingly critical of Trump, a Republican, at smaller show business events in the past year, but none of them had the profile enjoyed by the Tony Awards. While at a groundbreaking ceremony for a Canadian restaurant he was launching with celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa in Toronto Monday, June 10, the actor said: "I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president".

De Niro's first prominent act of speaking out against Trump arrived in a PSA video preceding the presidential election in October 2016, when the actor called Trump a "dog", a "mutt", a "con", and an "idiot", and said of then-candidate Trump, "I'd like to punch him in the face".

De Niro said Trump's remarks were a "disgrace".
