Elon Musk recently responded to comments made by actor Robert De Niro on MSNBC’s “11th Hour with Stephanie Ruhle.”

During the interview, De Niro likened former President Donald Trump to notorious historical figures Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini, suggesting that Trump’s return to the presidency would lead to chaos.

Musk criticized De Niro’s comparison on his social media platform X, stating that Trump’s previous four-year term as president did not resemble the dictatorial regimes of Hitler or Mussolini.

He argued, “Well, Trump was actually already president for 4 years and his policies bore no resemblance to those of Hitler, so this makes no sense.” Musk also referenced the Abraham Accords, highlighting them as an example of Trump’s efforts that diverged significantly from anything Hitler would have supported.

De Niro has been vocal about his disapproval of Trump, emphasizing the dangers he believes Trump poses to the country. He expressed confusion over why some voters would consider supporting Trump again, stating, “I don’t understand it.

The actor also drew parallels between Trump and his role as a villain in Martin Scorsese’s 2023 crime drama “Killer of The Flower Moon,” discussing the ‘banality of evil’ and the entitlement he sees in both his character and Trump.

De Niro’s critique of Trump is not new; he famously voiced his displeasure during the 2018 Tony Awards with a direct expletive aimed at Trump. His consistent stance reflects a deep-seated concern about Trump’s potential impact on the United States.

Musk’s rebuttal on X underscores the ongoing debate surrounding Trump’s presidency and its implications, contrasting sharply with De Niro’s stark warnings. The discourse continues as both high-profile figures
