Ahead of the worldwide premiere of his upcoming film "The Irishman" at the BFI London Film Festival, De Niro took the stage and said, "Today, everything's been turned upside-down because of Trump because he's such a dirty player,"reported Variety".

"Today, everything's been turned upside-down because of Trump because he's such a dirty player". It's unbelievable to me that's he's...getting away with it.

"He won't get away with it forever, but he is getting away with saying these things about every institution", he added.

Pressing on the need to protect the institutions plus "the Fourth Estate, the press", the Oscar victor added, "he's trying to destroy them and for only one reason: to save himself. And we all know this".

But the outspoken critic of the US head of state became animated when given the opportunity to talk politics.

"It's pretty disgusting that we've got Republicans there who are just so afraid to do anything, so afraid to stand up", said De Niro.

"They could be stars in their own communities". "Certain senators have pulled out...but others could pull out, get out and say, 'I can't be in this administration".

He added how odd it seems to him that the President is even "getting away with it".

The "Goodfellas" star is also set to be seen on U.K. TV, Friday, on the BBC's "The Graham Norton Show".

De Niro, who in The Irishman portrays hitman Frank Sheeran, the man presumed to have murdered union boss Jimmy Hoffa in 1975, even went as far as to call Trump a "gangster president who thinks he can do anything he wants".

"Gangsters have honour, you shake a hand and they have your word and you have theirs and that's it", he continued. "But with this guy, it's not the case", Robert De Niro said.

The 63rd BFI London Film Festival closes on October 13 with "The Irishman".

While we wait with bated breath for updates on whether Trump might actually get booted out of the White House, make sure to check out Robert De Niro in The Irishman when it is released in select United Kingdom cinemas on November 8.
