Robert De Niro Slams Trump On ‘The View’, Calls For Impeachment: ‘He Has To Pay For It – Period’

Published on

Actor Robert De Niro appeared on “The View” on Monday where he made a case as to why Donald Trump needs to be removed from office.

“I think no matter what happens, which we know probably in the Senate he won’t get convicted or whatever, but we have to do this,” De Niro said. “We have to go through the motions. Symbolically it means something. It’s a taint on his presidency, more than a taint. It’s a stain, one that he deeply deserves, so, yes, we will go through it and take our chances.”

“We have to take our chances no matter what,” he added. “He’s going to try and use it that he got ahead of it and say (he) beat it like a gangster, (he) beat the rap like the ‘Teflon Don,’ but he has to take that punishment. He has to pay the consequences.”

De Niro said Democrats must risk losing Republican-leaning voters to impeach Trump.

“We don’t have time for that,” De Niro said. “He did something wrong, he has to pay for it — period.”
