CBS confirmed to Variety following the ceremony that De Niro's comments were not planned and the actor improvised to bash the President. Trump disavowed a joint G7 statement and called Trudeau "dishonest" on Twitter shortly after leaving the meeting, adding that the US will look at automobile tariffs on Canada.

Trump advisers also attacked the Canadian PM, branding him a back-stabber. "It's F*** Trump!" De Niro added.

In October, De Niro was the guest of honor at Hudson River Park Gala, where a park bench was dedicated in his honor.

"I'm gonna say one thing: F-- Trump!" he stated, as he clenched his two fists in the air, leaving panic-stricken broadcast censors trying bleep out the remarks.

The CBS television audience heard dead silence instead of De Niro's comments, The Associated Press reported.
