Anderson Cooper: Trump performance disgraceful
(CNN) —  

A Finnish newspaper is welcoming Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin to Helsinki with pointed messages about the free press.

The messages, which appear on 300 billboards, include: “Mr. President, Welcome to the land of free press” and “Trump calls media enemy of the people.”

The US and Russian Presidents are meeting for talks in the Finnish capital Monday.

LIVE UPDATES: Trump and Putin meeting

“As we welcome the presidents to the summit in Helsinki, we @hsfi want to remind them of the importance of free press. 300 billboards on the routes from the airport to the summit are filled with news headlines regarding presidents’ attitude towards the press freedom,” the senior editor-in-chief of the newspaper Helsingin Sanomat explained on Twitter.

US President Trump has frequently lambasted the press for what he calls “fake news” and has described it as “the enemy of the people.”

Free press monitors have taken notice. Press freedom group Reporters Without Borders (known by its French acronym RSF) dropped the United States down two places to 45 in its 2018 World Press Freedom Index rankings, saying Trump’s presidency “has fostered further decline in journalists’ right to report.”

President Donald Trump points at CNN's Jim Acosta and accuses him of "fake news" while taking questions during a news conference following Tuesday's midterm congressional elections at the White House in Washington, D.C. Wednesday, November 7, 2018.
