Veteran actor Robert De Niro has slammed US President Donald Trump, pointing out how the administration's budget proposal is targeting the arts.

While accepting the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Chaplin Award here, De Niro said the administration is targeting the arts and potentially depriving the US of great artistes "for their own divisive political purposes," reports variety.com.

"I don't make movies for rich liberal elites. I've got my restaurants for that. I make them for everybody," the 73-year-old said.

De Niro mentioned the National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities and Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which would be eliminated under the president's budget proposal "for their own divisive political purposes."

"I call it what it is: bullshit," said the "Taxi Driver" star.
