Trump sent the tweets about the Taxi Driver star from Air Force One as he returned from the meeting with Kim, according to CNN.


The Raging Bull star has been vocal about his disdain for Trump. In January he referred to him as the “baby-in-chief” at the National Board of Review Awards. He also declared in a 2016 video that he’d like to “punch Trump in the face”.

“First, I wanna say, ‘f*** Trump,'” Rovert declared. “It’s no longer ‘Down with Trump,’ it’s ‘f*** Trump.'”

While Trump didn’t approve of his words, the audience sure did. He got a standing ovation.
