Trump administration's "hostility" to the arts Robert De Niro has said that Charlie Chaplin would not be allowed into the U.S. today due to Donald Trump's immigration policy.
Almost four decades ago, three of today's biggest names in film starred together in the Oscar-winning Vietnam War movie Deep Hunter - and Meryl Streep, Robert De Niro and Christopher Walken were together again on the red carpet for the Chaplin Award Gala in New York City. "For their own divisive political purposes the administration suggests the money from these programs go to liberal elites".
"You want to get me killed?" he joked.
The 73-year-old was accepting the Film Society of Lincoln Centre's Chaplin Award on Monday when he again took aim at the USA president. "This is what they now call an 'alternative fact.' I call it what it is - bullshit".
The Godfather star added that he was concerned about the government's 'hostility towards art'.
Following the actress' impassioned acceptance speech at the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards in January, De Niro commended her in a letter obtained exclusively by PEOPLE.
