Cooper, a CNN reporter, said during his segment that the country is "watching perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American President at a summit in front of a Russian leader."

Cooper had been reporting live from Helsinki this week and covered the Trump-Putin summit as the two Presidents met earlier this week to address reporters.

Netizens took to Twitter, and while some agreed with Cooper, others felt he was stepping out of line by calling it one of Trump's most disreputable performances.

Nika Beselia thanked Cooper for his insight and said 'people should know that Russia is a disgraceful, hideous country with [an] occupant as a president.'

Alex C said the country just witnessed 'the saddest day when The President of USA bowed to [the] Russian President unconditionally.'

He said: 'We definitely have a Manchurian Candidate in the White House! Imagine what we didn't hear when they met alone behind closed doors.'

Jesse Baloca disagreed and feels that Cooper is 'constantly biased' and attacks President Trump at every opportunity.

Trump referred to the US investigation into the matter as a "witch hunt" and added that it was a disaster for America and his kept the country separated, The Hill reports.

As reported by Washington Examiner, Robert Mueller indicted 12 Russian military officers for federal crimes during the election, including meddling and hacking into emails and servers.
