Robert De Niro, one of Trump’s most-outspoken critics, seemingly targeted in suspicious package attack

Robert De Niro, who has outwardly expressed his disdain for President Trump, may have been the target of a “suspicious package.” The delivery was sent to the building that houses the Tribeca Grill, a restaurant started by the Academy Award winning actor and his Tribeca Film Center, police say.

De Niro has made his aversion to Trump quite clear, admitting he’d “like to punch him in the face” and giving him multiple tongue lashings.

“At approximately 4 a.m. police received responded to a call about a suspicious package at 375 Greenwich,” Jerry Varson with the New York Police Department confirmed to USA TODAY Thursday morning.

USA TODAY has reached out to De Niro’s rep for comment. 

A series of devices discovered throughout the day Wednesday, which included pipe bombs, were sent to prominent Democrats and across the country and to CNN’s New York office. Former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton received threats. Packages were also sent to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, liberal philanthropist George Soros and California Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters.
