Robert De Niro Compares Donald Trump’s Election Win to 9/11
“I feel like I did when the World Trade Centre was attacked,” the actor told The Telegraph while promoting The Comedian. “I’m waiting to see. I’m stunned. We’re gonna see. I’m gonna give him the benefit of the doubt. We’ll see what happens.”
“This was about world order, doing things, trying to work our way through a lot of problems internationally and domestically and you need a grown up for that. We’ll see. We’re all waiting, we’re watching,” De Niro, 73, added.
Back in October, he also shared that he’d like to punch the President-elect in the face, among other things. However, now his wish probably won’t come true.
“I can’t do that now — he’s the president,” De Niro admitted to Jimmy Kimmel. “And I have to respect that position, even though we all know what he, anyway. We have to see what he’s gonna do, and how he’s really gonna follow through on certain things. As we even see now, in a lot of cities, a lot of people are getting very upset and protesting.”
In case De Niro every wants togo back to Italy, the mayor of Ferrazzano, in the Italian region of Molise, has said the town was “ready to welcome him with open arms.”
