He continued, "I watched him last night and truly believe he may be 'punch-drunk'".
Representatives for De Niro did not immediately return a request for comment.
While De Niro's outburst received accolades from the anti-Trump #Resistance, it was the president's fans' turn to gloat after the twitter response.
"He repeated 'F*** Trump" a second time and received a standing ovation from the crowd at the awards show for excellence in Broadway theater, held in NY. He then added, "It's no longer 'down with Trump.' It's 'f-ck Trump!'" He then pumped both fists, Jake LaMotta-style. Yikes! "I watched Robert De Niro too, and as a doctor I can emphatically say that he has much greater mental faculties than you do on your best day, Mr. President", another fan said.
But Kevin Sorbo, star of the hit faith-based movie "God's Not Dead", took exception to De Niro's speech.
In today's nose-thumbing Twitter age, the reaction to De Niro's outburst was swift and polarized, making the controversy mount. The Academy Award victor shouted out, "Fuck Trump!", a declaration which brought the audience to their feet in ovation.
But after a press conference in which Trump said that there could be peace and a denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, he responded to the rant.
