Trump is hated around the world……
(CNN)Protests were already underway in Helsinki on Sunday as President Donald Trump left Scotland, bound for the Finnish capital ahead of his Monday meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Sunday’s demonstrations capped a weekend in which the US president drew protests no matter where he went — whether in Finland, in London or even at his own golf resort in Turnberry, Scotland.
People hold placards and flags during a “Helsinki Calling” march to defend human rights, freedom of speech and democracy on Sunday in Helsinki.
Finnish Demonstrators gathered for a colorful and peaceful protest in Senate Square in central Helsinki, carrying signs, giving speeches and making their opposition known to the US-Russia summit.
“USA & Russia, you did not send your best,” read Hammu Jaakkola’s sign. “You sent leaders that have lots of problems. They’re bringing crimes against humanity.” The sign added, “Some of you, I assume, are good people” — a reference to Trump’s disparaging comments about Mexican immigrants.
Protesters carried signs in Senate Square, protesting the policies of Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.
Niina, 27, and Semmi, 21, brought with them a sign of Trump’s face inside the triangular recycling logo. “Please recycle,” it said. “He is dangerous for the environment and for all of us.”
The women, who did not give their last names, showed up to the protests to “have their voices heard,” they told CNN.
“Trump and Putin don’t represent what we in Finland stand for,” Niina said. “All people in Finland are free.”
