Amal Clooney Blasts Trump for Giving ‘a Green Light’ to Autocrats to Kill Journalists

‘The U.S. president has given such regimes a green light and labeled the press in this country the ‘enemy of the people’

EXCERPT:

CLOONEY: “Similar examples are found in autocratic regimes, from North Korea, to Philippines, to Hungary, Turkey, and Brazil. The U.S. President has given such regimes a green light and labeled the press in this country 'the enemy of the people.' And, of course, two months ago, Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi moved into a consulate in Istanbul and was brutally tortured to death. In many of the cases I have worked on, too, I have seen journalists and opposition figures ruthlessly targeted so that they can no longer criticize leaders." (Raw Story)
