"He is so blatantly stupid, he's a punk, he's a dog, he's a pig, he's a con, a bullshit artist, a mutt, who doesn't know what he's talking about, doesn't do his homework, doesn't care," De Niro said.

"This is somebody that we want for president? I don't think so," he added.

De Niro's comments came before Sunday's televised town hall debate between Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Xinhua reports that in the debate Trump and Clinton went after each other relentlessly, hitting each other hard with scandals.

Indicative of the bad blood between them, they even did not shake hands at the outset of the debate, held at the Washington University in St Louis, Missouri.
