During the summer of the 2016 presidential campaign, the revered actor again weighed in on Trump
at the 22nd Sarajevo Film Festival, where he was receiving a lifetime achievement award.
"I don’t know, it’s crazy that people like Donald Trump... He shouldn’t even be where he is, so God help us," said De Niro
"I think people now are starting to really push back. The media, they’ve given him all this attention and finally they’re starting to say, ‘Come on, Donald. This is ridiculous. This is nuts. This is insane,’" De Niro said. "Cause what he’s been saying is really, totally crazy, ridiculous stuff…he’s totally nuts."
