& # 39; What is happening in a country like Australia or the United Kingdom or the US will be viewed by every other leader in the world and possibly used as an excuse to squeeze journalists and I think journalists "Being less secure throughout the world if rhetoric or even policies or laws in states that are supposed to be free are actually a threat in those countries," she said.

Clooney, the British government's envoy on freedom of the press, returned to the conference on Thursday where she doubled the President's suspicion and said, without renaming him again, that the leader of the free world made it for journalists with his rhetoric, reporters present.

On Wednesday, Clooney also revealed that she advised the disgrace of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to find a diplomatic post with the Ecuadorian government that would allow him to flee England.

Clooney, whose husband George is a vocal critic of the president, is the British government's envoy about freedom of the press.

Amal gave a speech about the growing difficulties journalists face when she sneaked at Trump.

& # 39; As James Madison, one of the founding fathers of America, warned us more than 200 years ago, the right to a free press is the only effective guardian of any other right.

& # 39; But today journalists are being attacked like never before. They die not only during wars, but also because they uncover crimes that have been committed in war, resulting in abuse of power in peacetime.

& # 39; Recent reports suggest that today only one in ten people in the world live in a country with a free press.

& # 39; And today, the land of James Madison, has a leader who denounces the media, making honest journalists around the world more vulnerable to abuse & # 39 ;, she said.
