Robert De Niro Says Trump ‘Doesn’t Even Care How Many People Die’

Actor Robert De Niro is confident President Donald Trump cares more about the election than he does about Americans amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“It’s appalling. He wants to be reelected. He doesn’t even care how many people die,” De Niro said.

Emily Maitlis, the host of BBC Newsnight, noted Trump’s fan base would take issue with De Niro’s remarks and explained how they will vote for him again.

De Niro reiterated that he believes Trump does not care about the lives of Americans.

“He doesn’t care for those people and the people who he pretends to care about are the people he has the most disdain for because he could care less about them,” De Niro said.

He continued, “They might like to tell themselves that or delude themselves but he doesn’t care about them.”

Watch his comments below:

De Niro called the Trump administration’s handling of the pandemic “Shakespearean” and Trump himself a “lunatic.”

“It’s like Shakespearean the whole thing,” De Niro said. “You got a lunatic saying things that people are trying to dance around.”

De Niro illustrated New York as being a “ghost town” and how other parts of the world look the same way.

“It’s surreal, then you see other parts of the world, other big great cities of the world are also in the same situation,” De Niro said.

He continued, “It’s interesting, it’s kind of like a science fiction movie but it’s real.”

New York has become the state with the most coronavirus cases. As of Wednesday afternoon, there are nearly 344,000 confirmed coronavirus cases and more than 27,000 deaths due to the virus in the state.

The United States is not out of the woods yet, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, while there may be a slight decline in coronavirus cases in some areas, other areas are facing spikes, as IJR previously reported.


  1. He is an actor (soso at best) that makes his living being things he isn’t. Why would ANY RATIONAL,THINKING person give any credence to ANYTHING he says?
    Why does IJR waste space and time writing nonsense such as this?????

  2. DeNiro your calling the kettle black! If anyone is concerned about the people of this nation it’s Donald Trump POTUS! I know you don’t give a rats a** about anyone except yourself!

  3. “De Niro reiterated that he believes Trump does not care about the lives of Americans.” The President is engaged every day in fighting the virus. He’s arranged for an unprecedented number of equipment and supplies to be manufactured and distributed to needy areas. He’s worked with Congress to provide support and aid to all Americans throughout the crisis. What has De Niro done? So far, I’ve only seen him complain along with other Democrats and late night talk show hosts who don’t know anything. He is the face of Democrats – a tired old man complaining, an actor without a cue card or a script, witless.

  4. Deniro is an actor, a buffoon, a vaudevillian, not an intellect or even an honest person.

  5. Also this isn’t news deniro has been shit talking since late 2015 this is nothing new nor news worthy if it was new events.

  6. Do you support abortion deniro of course you do so what about caring for those lives? The ones who literally can’t even speak for themselves are are let’s not split hairs are executed against their will no less which would classify this as what in a legal sense? Let me clarify that for you if you ended the life of another adult or teenager adolescent basically anyone outside of a womb. That would be murder correct by the literal letter of the law in down cases it’s ruled in self defense but murder none the less correct? So Mr deniro explain to me why you don’t care about a single one of those unborn lives yet you espouse to care so damn much about adults dying from a disease. Let’s not pretend like you give a damn about anyone outside your family or social circles, and God forbid if they disagree with you then you no longer care about them either.

  7. And on the other side of the aisle, the Democrats’ only response to the masses of homeless poor was to tell them to “just stay home.” (After enough ridicule, this was revised to “shelter in place.”) As more and more people run out of money, out of food… Well, there’s no way to anticipate how this will all turn out.

  8. DeNiro could sell his brain on Amazon. It’ hasn’t been used in years.

  9. Is this jerk still in America. Is it the same guy who blow air that he will move to Canada four years ago?

  10. Why do you even print this Clowns Comments.They are insulting and full of Garbage.Plain Hate Mongering.Let him crawl back in his Hole.

  11. DeNiro…you weren’t that good of an actor…and you are totally failing in this roll of “know-it-all”. Your opinion counts as much or less than mine!

  12. why is this news? his opinion is no more valuable than a blast of hot air.

  13. Without someone writing a script DeNiro is lost. Just more silly name calling. Why was this even on IJR? Slow news day?

  14. He doesn’t even care how many people die
    Just like the dims killing babies on a daily basis.

      1. “cunt”. Show some class, idiot. Do I need to give you the definition of class?

      2. Your lack of intelligence is staggering, Tom. I believe the word you were looking for was “really”.
