In a fiery denouncement, iconic actor Robert De Niro launched a scathing attack on Donald Trump, branding him a "loser" and a "clown" mere steps away from the Manhattan courthouse where the former president faced closing arguments in his criminal trial. Surrounded by the city's skyline, De Niro, a proud native New Yorker, lambasted Trump during a press conference organized by President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign outside Manhattan Supreme Court.

He doesn’t belong in my city," De Niro declared, recalling a time when New Yorkers begrudgingly tolerated Trump's presence as a mere real estate mogul. "A two-bit playboy lying his way into the tabloids," he continued, emphasizing Trump's ostentatious persona. The legendary star, known for his roles in "Taxi Driver" and "The Godfather Part II," characterized Trump as a genuine threat to the nation, citing his role in inciting violence during the deadly Capitol riot of January 6, 2021.

De Niro's decision to join forces with the Biden-Harris campaign stemmed from a belief that Trump's brand of violence was that of a coward. "You think Trump ever threw a punch himself, or took one?" he questioned, highlighting Trump's retreat to the White House bunker during protests. At his side stood former U.S. Capitol Police officer Harry Dunn, a symbol of the bravery displayed by law enforcement during the Capitol siege.

Trump's supporters, including his adult children, swiftly dismissed the press conference as a politically motivated ploy by the Biden campaign. However, De Niro's impassioned speech marked a significant escalation in the Biden camp's efforts to confront Trump as the 2024 election loomed closer. As the curtain falls on Trump's trial, the stage is set for a dramatic showdown between political rivals, with De Niro's voice amplifying the growing chorus of opposition against the former president.
