The Swedish activist used as a chicana the same message that the president of the United States had sent her a year ago.
Faced with claims for a possible victory for Joe Biden in the presidential elections in the United States, the current president and opponent of the Democrat, Donald Trump, denounced fraud, said they want to steal the election and asked to stop the vote counts. And, among so many messages around the world, one that stood out in the last hours was that of the environmental activist Greta Thunberg.
The young Swedish woman had a little “revenge” and on her Twitter account she sent a message identical to the one she had received from the Republican, amid disputes over the environmental issue.
“How ridiculous. Donald has to work on his anger management problem and go see a good old-fashioned movie with a friend. Relax Donald, relax!“.
The message on social networks exceeded one million “likes” and more than 350,000 retweets. Thunberg quoted the president’s message when he demanded that the vote counting stop while waiting for the definition of the presidential elections.
This message from Greta to Trump comes just as the United States officially exited the Paris Climate Agreement. Democrat Biden has already announced that if he wins, he will return the United States to that pact to combat the climate crisis reached in 2015.
Greta’s words are exactly the same as Trump dedicated to her in December 2019, joining the climate change deniers who harshly attacked Thunberg.
That happened in the framework of a UN assembly where the young Swedish activist had become world-famous for her reproach to world leaders in the face of the climate crisis. He also gave Trump a piercing look at the Organization’s headquarters that went around the world.
But that was not the first time the head of state had criticized her. In September 2019, he had referred to her in a mocking way on social media. “She seems like a very happy young woman,” she had launched on her Twitter account ironically. Along with his message, he had shared a video in which Thunberg demanded that the UN authorities take urgent action on climate change.
Earlier this year, the World Economic Forum was the scene of a new confrontation between the activist and the president. The young Swedish woman demanded concrete and urgent measures: “Our house is still on fire. Your inaction fuels the flames every hour, we tell you to act like you love your children above all else. “
Trump, for his part, said he was “committed to preserving the majesty of God’s work.” He then announced that he was joining the Davos initiative to plant one billion trees on the planet. However for Thunberg it will not be enough with that measure. “Planting trees is good, of course, but it is not close to being enough and it cannot replace the real mitigation of damage to nature,” said the activist.
