If Robert DeNiro has his way, President Trump won't be able to eat at upscale eatery Nobu ever again. The actor founded the Japanese-Peruvian fusion restaurant in 1993 with chef Nobu Matsuhisa. It has since expanded into over 30 locations worldwide, and DeNiro doesn't want Trump at any of them, The Daily Mail reports. The actor insisted that he would never let Trump dine at any of the Nobu locations, even though he has reportedly been to the restaurant in the past.

Co-owner chef Matsuhisa had a slightly different take on Trump eating at the restaurant so he might not be completely banned just yet. "It's my dream for Trump to sit next to Bob. To make them sushi," the chef said playfully. Earlier that day, DeNiro added that he would leave any establishment where the president was dining, in addition to not wanting him in his own. "I don't care what he likes. If he walked into a restaurant I was in - I'd walk out."

DeNiro has been one of the president's harshest critics throughout his campaign and into his presidency, calling him everything from a "fucking idiot" to a "flat-out blatant racist," among other things.  "He's a punk, he's a dog, he's a pig, he's a con, a bullshit artist, a mutt who doesn't know what he's talking about, doesn't do his homework," he said in footage from 2016. "Doesn't care, thinks he's gaming society, doesn't pay his taxes."
