“I’m gonna say one thing: f—- Trump!” he said, waving his two fists in the air. “It’s no longer down with Trump, it’s f—- Trump!”
De Niro has criticized Trump multiple times, including during opening nights at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival in April. De Niro isn’t the first celebrity to insult a president. Here are five other times celebrities feuded with Trump:
1. Bette Midler
Bette Midler has also been vocal about her dislike of Trump in the past. The two celebrities have traded insults on Twitter.

2. Meryl Streep
The actress called out Trump during a speech at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards, highlighting the time he made fun of a disabled reporter. Trump responded on Twitter.
Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn't know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2017
Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never "mocked" a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him.......— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2017
"groveling" when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2017
3. Martha Stewart
In an open letter, Trump called Stewart “terrible” and said “she “lacked the mood, temperament, and just about everything else a show needs for success.” She had her own spinoff show of The Apprentice, which Trump said was less successful than his own. She called his comments “mean-spirited.”
After Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z performed at a Hillary Clinton political rally, Trump critiqued their singing. "The language is so bad. As they were singing? Singing, right? Talking? Was it talking or singing? I don't know. But the language – by both – but the language was so bad, that many of the people left. By the time Hillary got up, there was nobody there," Trump said.

In 2011, Rihanna cancelled a performance at Trump charity event due to illness. When she was seen the day after the charity event at the NBA All-Star game, Trump said her cancellation was insulting. “But for Rihanna to go to the All-Star Game and perform after she told us she was sick, that is just a lack of respect,” he said.
