The 73-year-old star's remarks feature in a video produced by Anonymous Content, which has been making a series of short interviews for an initiative called #VoteYourFuture, reported Variety.

"I'd like to punch him (Trump) in the face," he said in the clip.

In the video, De Niro can also be heard calling Trump a "blatantly stupid" and "punk" artist.

De Niro's message to Trump didn't make the final cut of a celebrity Get Out The Vote advertisement, but The Kelly File show has obtained the footage.

De Niro said Trump is "so blatantly stupid", and called him almost every name including a "punk", a "pig", a "con", and an "embarrassment to this country", reports

"He talks how he'd like to punch people in the face?" De Niro said. "Well, I'd like to punch him in the face."
