US PRESIDENT DONALD Trump has hit back at Robert De Niro calling him a “very low IQ individual”, after the actor cursed Trump at the Tony Awards.

De Niro received a standing ovation on Sunday when he attacked the US President.

He told the crowd: “I’m going to say one thing – fuck Trump!” before pumping his fists in the air.

He added, “It’s no longer ‘down with Trump’, it’s ‘fuck Trump’.”

Trump has taken to Twitter to express how he feels about the Oscar-winning actor, saying:

Robert De Niro, a very Low IQ individual, has received to many shots to the head by real boxers in movies. I watched him last night and truly believe he may be “punch-drunk”.

“I guess he doesn’t realise the economy is the best it’s ever been with employment being at an all time high, and many companies pouring back into our country.”

The US President ended by saying, “Wake up Punchy!”
