Trump Calls De Niro 'very Low IQ individual'

President Trump tweeted a response Tuesday to actor Robert De Niro who attacked him in a profanity-laden speech at the Tony Awards, held Sunday night at Radio City Music Hall.

Trump called the two-time Academy Award winning actor a "very Low IQ individual," and said De Niro "has received to [sic] many shots to the head by real boxers in movies."

De Niro won one of his Academy awards for his portrayal of middleweight boxer Jake LaMotta in the movie "Raging Bull."

Trump ended his two tweet tirade saying De Niro doesn't realize how well the economy is doing.

...realize the economy is the best it's ever been with employment being at an all time high, and many companies pouring back into our country. Wake up Punchy!
