Amal Clooney Calls Out Trump For Violence Against The Media

07 December 2018, 06:29 | Elsie Buchanan

As the event's Global Citizen of the Year honoree, the worldwide human rights lawyer gave an impassioned speech about the threats to the safety of journalists, citing specific cases of imprisonment in Myanmar and by "autocratic regimes" around the globe.

In it, she addressed the ongoing attack on journalists - and placed much of the blame squarely on Trump.

Clooney was quick to point out the regimes that target journalists and pose the most threat to them, notably Brazil, Hungary, Turkey, North Korea, and the Philippines.

She referred to the "brutal torture and death" two month ago of a Washington Post journalist, Jamal Khashoggi. "You are being jailed at a higher rate than ever".
