Amal Clooney accuses Trump of 'giving green light' to autocratic regimes

The human rights lawyer was awarded the 2018 UNCA Global Citizen of the Year Award at the dinner, which was held at Manhattan restaurant Cipriani 42nd Street.

She was referring to widespread claims that the White House has turned a blind eye to the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October.

"In numerous cases that I have worked on too, I have seen journalists and opposition figures ruthlessly targeted so that they can no longer criticize leaders", she said, the London Evening Standard reported.

She honored "journalists being recognized for groundbreaking reporting" in the past year despite many overcoming significant opposition. George stood by her side with style, as he's known to do, but for an evening as momentous as this one, the duo snuck in a couple extra plus-ones: Nick Clooney and Nina Warren - as in, George's parents.

That means the president of a country should not publicly ridicule a women who courageously comes forward to allege abuse.

Speaking of a crackdown on dissent, she said: "The chilling effect is real and it has already been felt, not only in Myanmar but further afield".
