A lot of people are outraged, and it looks like Anderson Cooper not only is one of them but is also not afraid to say it. According to him, Donald Trump’s ‘surrender summit’ is a disgrace!
The American president and Russian leader, Vladimir Putin side by side really shocked the TV personality who just couldn’t hold back his reaction.
‘You have been watching perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit in front of a Russian leader, that I’ve ever seen.’

As you may be aware, Trump and Putin held their summit in Helsinki today.
But Cooper was not the only one who just couldn’t believe his eyes.
Other CNN newscasters expressed their opinions on what they were watching as well.
John King couldn’t believe that he saw an American president ‘surrending to the Russian leader,’ suggesting that from now on, it should be known as ‘The Surrender Summit.’
It was also dubbed as the ‘Treason Summit’ by CIA Director John Brennan.
‘Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to and exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???’
Jeff Flake is another personality who slammed Trump for saying that the US was also to ‘blame’ for the tensions between the two countries.
In a tweet, he made sure to say that blaming America for the Russian aggression is nothing short of ‘shameful.’
Chris Cuomo took to social media as well to call the president’s approach ‘embarrassing.’
He said that while Trump may believe this benefits him, that is not the case and his advisors should either tell him that or reveal the reason why they won’t.
