Robert De Niro Compares Donald Trump to 'Taxi Driver' Character: 'He's Totally Nuts'

Robert De Niro is comparing Donald Trump to his mentally disturbed character, Travis Bickle, in the 1976 film 'Taxi Driver'.

When asked to elaborate about Bickle's mental illness at the Sarajevo Film Festival, De Niro said: "One of the things to me was just the irony at the end, he Bickle is back driving a cab, celebrated, which is kind of relevant in some way today too."

"I don't know, it's crazy that people like Donald Trump... he shouldn't even be where he is, so God help us," De Niro said at the .

"What he's been saying is really totally crazy, ridiculous... he is totally nuts."

"But I think now they are really starting to push back, the media. Finally they are starting to say, 'Come on Donald, this is ridiculous, this is nuts, this is insane.'"

De Niro was at the event presenting Martin Scorsese's restored 'Taxi Driver' and received the festival's first lifetime achievement award.
