Robert De Niro — one of Hollywood’s most outspoken critics of President TrumpDonald John TrumpPapadopoulos on AG's new powers: 'Trump is now on the offense' Pelosi uses Trump to her advantage Mike Pence delivers West Point commencement address MORE — says Democrats need “to be more aggressive” in standing up to the commander in chief.

“The things that Trump has done, if Obama had done one-fiftieth, they’d be all over him,” De Niro said in an interview with The Guardian published Sunday.

“That’s why I feel that Democrats have to be more aggressive,” the Academy Award winner continued.

“You’ve got to stand up. You can’t be so gentlemanly all the time because you’ve just got to say: ‘Sorry, I’m nice to a point, then I’ve got to push back.’ ”

In the same interview, De Niro also said he considers Trump a fascist and a white supremacist. 

De Niro has railed against the president in countless interviews and public appearances, saying onstage at last year’s Tony Awards, “F--- Trump!” He has also referred to Trump as a “jerkoff in chief” and a “f---ing idiot.”

Trump has hit back at De Niro in the past, nicknaming him “Punchy” and dubbing him a “very low IQ individual” in a tweet last year.
