‘I think there is a screw loose there’ - Robert De Niro’s verdict on Donald Trump’s handling of coronavirus pandemic

Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro has attacked Donald Trump over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

De Niro, 77, has  been a constant critic of the President since his election in 2016 and believes a different approach could have seen a different result in the election.

"I think there’s a screw loose there. [Trump] just doesn’t get it," the actor said in an interview with MSNBC.

"If he’d done what he should’ve done for the virus, he could’ve won this election. I wouldn’t be happy about it, but he would’ve done something right. He didn’t even understand how to do that."

Trump continues to reject the result of the election and is mounting a legal challenge


Back in May, the Raging Bull actor told the BBC: "It’s appalling, it’s appalling. He wants to be re-elected, he doesn’t even care how many people die.

“And the people who he pretends to care about are the people he has the most disdain for.”
