Monday, President Donald Trump joined Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, for a closed door meeting. In the lead up to the meeting, the U.S. President faced heavy criticism for a tweet blaming the United States' "foolishness" and "stupidity" for poor relations with Russia.
The tweet faced further scrutiny when the Russian government official English language Twitter account retweeted Trump's post under their own comment of "We agree."
Then, after holding his private one on one meeting with Putin, the President again faced stern rebukes for his remarks during a joint press conference. The hashtag #TreasonSummit trended heavily on social media in the wake of the press conference.
And online resources Dictionary.com —and their sister site Thesaurus.com— decided to help out.
In a series of tweets, Dictionary.com offered some helpful words for the President and United States citizens in the aftermath of the Helsinki meeting.
