Mr Trump responded at the time by dismissing De Niro as “a very Low IQ individual”.
During an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Friday, De Niro, 75, aimed another dig at the president, telling the host he had tried giving Mr Trump a chance.
He said: “That’s what I said right after he was elected. Give him a chance. I give everybody the benefit of the doubt. This guy has proven himself to be a total loser.”

Colbert asked De Niro why audiences are so enamoured with the gangster genre, prompting the actor to aim another barb at Mr Trump.
He said: “People like the outlaw type thing except we have a wannabe gangster in the White House now.”
De Niro also called Mr Trump a “dumbbell”, adding: “Even gangsters have morals and they have ethics.
“They have a code and you know when you give somebody your word it’s your word because it’s all you have is your word. This guy he doesn’t even know what that means.”
