Robert De Niro compares Killers of the Flower Moon character to Donald Trump

During a press conference staged as part of the Cannes Film Festival in France on Sunday, the Oscar-winning actor spoke about how he found it difficult to connect with the part of William Hale when working on Martin Scorsese's new film about the murder of members of the Osage tribe in Oklahoma under mysterious circumstances in the 1920s. "I don't understand a lot about my character. He has to be charming, he has to win people over... Part of him is sincere. It's the other part, where he's betraying (the Osage people), there's a feeling of entitlement."
