HELSINKI (AP) — Finnish media on Thursday praised their president’s performance at a Washington news conference with U.S. President Donald Trump as "ice-cold strong" as he stoically endured Trump’s heated comments on the U.S. impeachment inquiry.

The U.S. president used large chunks of their joint news conference on Wednesday to talk about the situation with Ukraine, leaving his guest sidelined. Finnish President Sauli Niinisto stood calmly by while Trump answered questions about his controversial phone call with Ukraine’s leader.

“Ask him a question,” Trump irritably told a reporter, pointing to his counterpart.

Thursday’s TV show "Morning Finland" on MTV3 widely covered the Trump-Niinisto meeting, because its U.S. correspondent at the news conference asked Niinisto a pointed question: “What kind of favors has Mr. Trump asked from you?”

5. So true! No doubt you remember how Trump tried to impress Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe

by resorting to his pathetic act of intimidation the hand-crush, in place of a civilized handshake.



On edit:

I just went back and stared at the hand shake with the Finnish President, and was startled to see how creepy that expression is on the Orange Nightmare's face as he peers into the man's face trying to see what he's thinking! Looks like intimidation to me. It's none of his business to be staring at him at such close range. What a DIRTBALL.

6. I laughed when he put his hand of the Fnnish President's

leg. He swats it away like, "Yuk, I'm not Melania".

8. Bravo to the "Morning Finland" correspondent

I hope the question was posed in English so President Dumbass could understand it.
