After swearing at the US president during the Tony Awards on Sunday, De Niro decided to apologize to Canadian Prime minister Justin Trudeau for Trump’s “behavior.”

At a promotional event for a Nobu restaurant and hotel, De Niro said, “I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president. That’s a disgrace and I apologize to Justin Trudeau and the other people at the G7. It’s disgusting.”
