Suspicious package sent to ‘Robert De Niro’s restaurant in Tribeca, New York’

A suspicious package has reportedly been found at a New York restaurant owned by Robert De Niro.

The property in Greenwich Street, Manhattan, houses the Tribeca Grill.

US media reports the package was addressed to the Hollywood actor.

It comes as Donald Trump has launched a new attack on the media – hours after pipe bombs were sent to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the offices of CNN.

The package in Tribeca is similar to those that contained explosives, NBC News reports.

De Niro has been an outspoken critic of Mr Trump, declaring at one stage he would like to punch the president in the face.

The actor, who won an Oscar for his starring role in the boxing movie Raging Bull, received a standing ovation at the Tony Awards in June when he punched his fists in the air and said: “I’m going to say one thing – f*** Trump!”

Robert De Niro says "F*** Trump" onstage during the 72nd Annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall on June 10, 2018 in New York City.

The US president responded by tweeting: “Robert De Niro, a very Low IQ individual, has received too many shots to the head by real boxers in movies.

“I watched him last night and truly believe he may be ‘punch-drunk’.”
