After clenching two fists in the air, De Niro continued with: “It’s no longer down with Trump. It’s f— Trump.”

The veteran actor’s expletive statements resulted in a round of applause and a standing ovation from an audience featuring actors, writers, directors and industry professionals in theatre and television.
