Robert De Niro Slams Trump in Rousing Manifesto: ‘I’ve Spent a Lot of Time Studying Bad Men’ (Video)

“He’s a wannabe tough guy with no morals or ethics,” the actor wrote

Robert De Niro wrote a lengthy statement denouncing former President Donald Trump for ex-Trump official Miles Taylor to read at The New Republic’s “Stop Trump Summit” on Wednesday.

The actor didn’t even attend the event, as he is currently recovering from COVID-19, but he had a lot to say via Taylor at the New York City gathering.

“We New Yorkers got to know him over the years that he poisoned the atmosphere and littered our city with monuments to his ego. We knew firsthand that this was someone who should never be considered for leadership” De Niro wrote. “We tried to warn the world in 2016.”

“I’ve spent a lot of time studying bad men. I’ve examined their characteristics, their mannerisms, the utter banality of their cruelty,” De Niro also wrote. “Yet there’s something different about Donald Trump. When I look at him, I don’t see a bad man. Truly. I see an evil one.”

De Niro, who will appear in Martin Scorsese’s upcoming film “Killers of the Flower Moon,” backed up his analysis of Trump from past roles he has played in his extensive career, such as the gangsters he has met over the years. Trump to De Niro is a “wannabe gangster” who “can’t quite pull it off.”

“He’s a wannabe tough guy with no morals or ethics. No sense of right or wrong,” De Niro continued. “No regard for anyone but himself — not the people he was supposed to lead and protect.”

The Oscar winner, who has long been a staunch critic of the former president, predicted the death of democracy if Trump takes back the White House in 2024.

“Democracy won’t survive the return of a wannabe dictator,” he wrote. “And it won’t overcome evil if we are divided.”

His proposed solution lies in bridging the gap and reaching out to Trump supporters.

“They’re not stupid, and we must not condemn them for making a stupid choice,” De Niro said. “Our future doesn’t just depend on us. It depends on them.”

      A “fantasy world” is where people who believe the President of the United States controls the prices of groceries and gas live. You MAGAs are so brainwashed you don’t realize you’re worshipping the very monsters who are stabbing you in the back.

      The World’s Gas prices were all down in 2020 because no one was driving their cars due to Covid. It had nothing to do with Donald Trump. Prices went back up after we all started driving again in late 2021/2022. As far as grocery prices, as far as bounce back, I just paid 77 cents for a dozen eggs and 1.27 for a gallon of milk at Albertsons based on the sales in their weekly ads last week. During election night Trump told his followers to stop the count and people actually went to the polls to bang on the windows. Anyone can look up how each states count their vote and some states do not even start to count mail in ballots until AFTER election polls close. What Trump did by spurring those folks on to go to those polls to stop the count was nothing less than criminal. REAL Republicans know that after Trump exhausted his rights to contest the election results, after 20 election audits and 60 race filed/lost law suits, Trump LOST the election. Trump had the chance at that time to fess up and admit he lost in public. But he did not. Instead he kept spewing that he was cheated out of the presidency because of his fragile ego. Trump then incited people to overthrow the government to keep him in office.

      As far as 2024, the investigations were in swing before Trump announced and Trump is only running to try and keep himself out of jail. Trump’s platform is simple and right from the 1925 Adolf Hitler manifesto Mein Kampf, say it “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually believe it.”

      Trump’s trying to get people’s riled up, be angry, vengeful and divisive, wanting to destroy to create chaos and siphon their money to fix up his plane, pay for his wife’s hair stylist and speaking engagements, pay for his legal bills.

      I AM a PROUD Republican since 1980. I believe in smaller government and the rule of law. I believe that NO ONE is above the law.

      Anyone that does not yet realize this is an inane drone. The Trump party is NOT the Republican party. The Trump party is the Pity Party. Now who’s the moron

    Trump is a treasonous bum who belongs in prison for inviting and inciting a mob of morons to attack our Capitol and fellow Americans, and those who continue to support the Putin-backed terrorist are also traitors!

      Loser is not an insult when the competing concept is fascism, e.g., control over broadcasting licences, food and drug safety, environmental protection, FBI and CIA. But of course, moron…. such a nice term for people when you yourself lack English grammar, born and raised in the language… HE doesn’t have an election platform other than crying that he is being treated fairly, after his business partners and banks made money from accepting his lies. To tell others you are a winner and a stable genius when you are not, either of things, is just cheerleading for the almighty dollar.

    DeNiro is just another washed up loser actor who’s embarrassing himself over his TDS.
    I hope his new child is raised by someone with style and common sense, something this loser has lost.
    I’m not a MAGA Republican just a conservative.
    Loser!

    No one is interested in what DeNiro says.  He lives in a different world than regular people.  Shut up and go away.
