Greta Thunberg hits out at Donald Trump, says his tweets ‘don’t make a difference’ to her | World | News

Greta Thunberg had some strong words for Donald Trump after he published a sarcastic tweet about her. The Swedish climate activist was in New York to attend the UN Climate Summit, where she made an impassioned speech. The 16-year-old also appeared on Swedish talk show, SVT, with political documentary filmmaker Michael Moore.

They showed the viral picture of Greta’s stormy face when she sees President Trump enter the conference.

Michael Moore joked: “He didn’t see it, but he could feel it. He could feel the eyes at the back of his head.”

The host, Fredrik Skavlan, asked her what she was thinking at that moment.

Ms Thunberg said: “Well, first I was stopped because suddenly he came in and security said I had to step to the side.”

She continued: “I wondered what was going on, and then he showed up.

“I think I was very shocked.”

Mr Skavlan read out the President’s tweet about the climate campaigner.

Mr Trump had written: “She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future, so nice to see.”

She added: “I knew that sometime he was going to say something about me, and it doesn’t make any difference in any way.”

Mr Skavlan asked if she read any sarcasm into the tweet.

She said: “Well, of course I do.

“Of course he’s going to write that.”

Later, Ms Thunberg changed her Twitter profile biography to the President’s exact tweet in response.
