X owner Elon Musk slammed actor Robert De Niro this week for comparing former President Donald Trump to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.

De Niro, who has regularly made comments along these lines for nearly the last decade, renewed his attacks on Trump during an interview on MSNBC this week.

“I think other people are going to have to stand up and just — because it’s either that or you’re gonna find yourself in a situation that is so terrifying,” De Niro told MNSBC’s Stephanie Ruhle. “We always hear about people from Eastern Europe, the Jews from other parts of Eastern Europe, from Western Europe, coming over, look what happened in France with the Nazis and so on.”

He said that he never thought that someone like Hitler could take power in the U.S., “but now I see that it’s possible.”

De Niro claimed that there was “not one redeeming thing in him I can see ever” and that Trump “can’t be anywhere near the office of the presidency.”

“I don’t understand it. I don’t, I don’t think they understand how dangerous it will be if he ever, God forbid, becomes president. I don’t think they really understand,” he said of those who will be voting for Trump in 2024.

He continued, “And historically, from what I’ve seen, even in Nazi Germany, they had it with Hitler. They don’t take him seriously. ‘He looks like a clown. Acts like a clown.’ Mussolini. Same thing. These guys, I don’t know why, they look like clowns.”

Musk responded to a clip of De Niro from the segment that went viral on X by noting that Trump did not resemble Hitler during his first term in office and he was a very pro-Israel president.


“Well, Trump was actually already president for 4 years and his policies bore no resemblance to those of Hitler, so this makes no sense,” Musk posted. “In fact, with the Abraham Accords, he made some progress towards peace in the Middle East, which was definitely not high on Hitler’s agenda.”
