trump-putin-s-poodle.jpgMedia outlets worldwide are mocking Donald Trump over his fawning summit with Russia's Vladimir Putin as the US President continues to face scathing criticism in his home country on all political sides.

The headlines went as far as calling the US President 'treasonous', 'weak' and labeled him an 'autocrat' following the 45-minute press conference with his Russian counterpart in Helsinki on Monday.

The UK's Daily Mirror newspaper slammed Trump as being 'Putin's Poodle' and Germany's Handelsblatt outlet called the meeting a 'summit of the autocrats'.

A headline on Spanish newspaper El Mundo read: 'Trump surrenders to Putin after humiliating Europe'.

The front page of Finnish newspaper Kauppalehti simply read: Trump 0 - Putin 1.


French outlet Le Monde ran multiple headlines saying Trump's 'weakness in front of Putin' scandalized the Republicans and also said that Putin dominated the Helsinki match against Trump.

Back in Trump's hometown, the New York Daily News hammered him by implying that his refusal to condemn Putin was 'treason'.

The cover features a cartoon of Trump holding a shirtless Putin's hand as the US president shoots Uncle Sam on 5th Avenue in New York. It was a reference to Trump's claim back in 2016 that he could shoot someone 'in the middle of 5th Avenue' and still not lose supporters.

The backlash follows Trump's extraordinary embrace of a longtime US enemy by openly questioning his own intelligence agencies' firm finding that Russia meddled in the 2016 US election to his benefit.

The White House has struggled to explain why Trump aligned so closely with Putin, and lawmakers in both major parties appeared shocked and dismayed with his suggestion that he believes Putin's denial of interfering in the 2016 elections.

Trump's decision to side with Putin left a wake of confusion and outrage in the US.
