Democrats and some Republicans on Monday criticized President Donald Trump’s performance at a press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a summit in Helsinki, Finland. Former CIA Director John Brennan called Trump's behavior "treasonous." Brennan tweeted: "Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of 'high crimes & 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???"

A cabinet minister told The Times they were nervous of "some kind of Putin-Trump 'peace deal' suddenly being announced". They added: "We could see Trump and Putin saying, 'Why do we have all this military hardware in Europe?' and agreeing to jointly remove that."

UNRECOGNISABLE wax statues of Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un have appeared at a trade fair in China and are getting laughs from the public. The poorly made wax figures were part of a trades show in Shanghai this week called the Kitchen & Bath China exhibition. The three life-size figures look nothing like the people they're replicating - and they've been drawing laughs from people around the world. Donald Trump's iconic nonchalant facial expression has been attempted, with no luck. The only recognisable features in the president's statue is his comb-over hairstyle, and crooked thumbs up. Russian President Vladmir Putin was given a head of bright Auburn-coloured hair and eyebrows to match - in reality, his hair is a very light brown.

The waxworks were part of a marketing campaign to help attract potential … [Read more...] about Donald Trump, Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin among the hilariously bad waxworks on display at Chinese exhibition
