Amal Clooney: Trump Gives Regimes 'Green Light' to Murder Journalists

Worldwide human rights lawyer Amal Clooney trashed President Trump during a speech at the United Nations Wednesday night, claiming that he gives brutal regimes the "green light" to murder journalists. Others, however, have complained that more attention has been given to her navy J. Mendel gown than her speech.

The £5,090 colour-block number featured delicate spaghetti straps, a sweetheart neckline and a silk hand-pleated finish. Red carpet-worthy curls and glitzy diamond earrings finished the ensemble. George stood by her side with style, as he's known to do, but for an evening as momentous as this one, the duo snuck in a couple extra plus-ones: Nick Clooney and Nina Warren - as in, George's parents.

During Clooney's acceptance speech for her Global Citizen of the Year award, the humanitarian slammed President Trump for his attacks against the press, and praised the fearless work of journalists who are "under attack". Amal cited journalists she represented in Myanmar whom she says were wrongly imprisoned.

Taking to the stage, the 40-year-old called out US President Donald Trump for labelling American journalists the "enemy of the people".

"And you, the press, are under attack like never before", Clooney said.

"You are being jailed at a higher rate than ever", she continued.
