In response to a Trump statement about handling protesters at one of his rallies, De Niro said: "He wants to punch people in the face?"
The actor was attending a groundbreaking ceremony for a new development in downtown Toronto along with celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Canadian Broadcasting Corp.
De Niro raised his fists in the air and earned himself a sustained standing ovation.
CBS censors were quick on the trigger, excising everything DeNiro said up to the point where he started basking in the audience's reaction and putting up his dukes like he was Jake LaMotta in his prime.
De Niro was much more candid at the Tony Awards on Sunday night, earning a standing ovation for expletives aimed at the USA president. I say F... DeNiro!
After dropping the first f-bomb, he paused for a few seconds before adding, "It's no longer down with Trump".
De Niro appeared on stage at New York's Radio City Music Hall to introduce rocker and Tony Awards performer Bruce Springsteen.
De Niro then urged the audience to vote in November, before praising Springsteen for his own involvement in politics.
De Niro previously called Trump a "dog" and a "bulls*** artist" while threatening to physically assault him. "Boy, do we need that now!"
