    The star branded Trump a "clown" just outside the courthouse where his New York City criminal hush money trial is taking place.

    While De Niro didn't reference the criminal case directly, the actor stated: "A clown. This city is pretty accomodating, we make room for clowns.

    "We have them all over the city, people do crazy things in the street, we tolerate it. It's part of the city, part of the culture.

    "But not a person like Trump who may run the country. That does not work. We all know that."

    While De Niro spoke he was also heckled contunitosyly by Trump supporters, and didn't stop himself from clapping back at them.

    He said: "It's really crazy that this thing, Donald Trump, is creating this. He should be telling them not to do this.

    "He wants to cause total chaos, which he is succeeding in some areas. Anyways, beside all that."

    Robert De Niro shouting at Trump supporters.

    De Niro warned of Trump's potential return to the White House.

    He also branded the former president a "tyrant."

    He continued: "Now he's promising to use our own military to attack U.S. citizens.

    "That's the tyrant, that is the tyrant he is telling us he will be, and believe me, he means it."

    "We're not here today because of what's going on over there," Biden campaign communication director Michael Tyler told reporters, gesturing toward the courthouse. "We're here today because you all are here."

    Last week, the Biden campaign released a new ad that was narrated by De Niro, in which he criticizing Trump's presidency and plans if he's reelected.

    "I don't mean to scare you. No, wait, maybe I do mean to scare you," De Niro told reporters. "If Trump returns to the White House, you can kiss these freedoms goodbye that we all take for granted."

    The actor also mocked Trump's history of unsuccessful business ventures and self-promotion, saying Trump was looking to "destroy" the city.

    "We New Yorkers used to tolerate him when he was just another crappy real estate hustler masquerading as a big shot," De Niro said.

    "I love this city. I don't want to destroy it. Donald Trump wants to destroy not only the city but the country, and, eventually, he could destroy the world."

    Former Washington, D.C. police officer Michael Fanone and former Capitol police officer Harry Dunn spoke of their personal experiences on Jan. 6.

    Fanone describing his injuries suffered on the day at the hands of the Trump supporters who stormed the captiol, and added: "I came here today to remind Americans of what Donald Trump is capable of and the violence that he unleashed on all of Americans on Jan. 6, 2021."
