The Daily Mail reported that De Niro, a co-founder of the Nobu restaurant and hotel chain, insisted that he would not let Trump eat in his restaurants, and that he would leave any other eatery where the president entered.

“If he walked into a restaurant I was in, I’d walk out,” De Niro said.

Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, De Niro’s co-owner, then joked that it was his “dream for Trump to sit next to” De Niro so he could make them sushi.

Trump visited the Nobu restaurant in Moscow during his 2013 trip to Russia for the Miss Universe pageant, which has become a national focus after the release of a controversial dossier linking Trump to Russian nationals.

De Niro has repeatedly spoken out against Trump, referring to him as a “f---ing idiot” and a “f---ing fool,” among other jabs.
