With the audience of theatre actors, directors and producers shrieking and rising to their feet in applause, De Niro said: "It's no longer down with Trump".

The president called Trudeau "disgusting" and "weak" for how he pushed back against steep tariffs imposed by the US on steel and aluminum imports from Canada and other trade allies.

Trump advisers also attacked the Canadian PM, branding him a back-stabber.

"I want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behaviour of my president", De Niro said at the Toronto groundbreaking ceremony earlier on Monday.

De Niro raised his fists in the air and earned himself a sustained standing ovation.

Social media quickly spread the word of what DeNiro had to say, which in some ways put the attention more on his comments than Springsteen's performance.

"When you see celebrities say I hope the economy bottoms out to get rid of Trump, I think that helps Trump", Ruhle said.

De Niro's message came as he was introducing a musical performance by Bruce Springsteen, who performed "My Hometown" from his hit one-man show.

May survives fresh Brexit vote but rebels up the pressure
Leading rebel Dominic Grieve said he hoped a compromise would be found, but if not, "this isn't the end of the matter". Nick Ferrari told a Conservative "rebel" that her job is to get on with delivering the Brexit at the people voted for.

Trump is yet to respond to De Niro's latest outburst, but we can be pretty sure he probably will. "Boy, do we need that now". "I mean, if you're Donald Trump, it doesn't mean anything".

The man behind Angels in America, legendary playwright Tony Kushner, spoke to reporters backstage about De Niro's spirited introduction for Springsteen, the AP reported.

And the more level-headed commenters pointed out the ultimate hollowness of De Niro's habitual statement.

The White House did not immediately return a request for comment.
