Greta Thunberg Settles Accounts With Donald Trump: “He Seems Like a Very Happy Old Man”

Present The Swedish activist and the former US president have never gotten along

Swedish activist Greta Thunberg

Lto swedish Greta Thunberg has taken advantage of the investiture of Joe Biden as 46 President of the United States to say goodbye through his Twitter account to the former president Donald Trump, that early this Wednesday has left the White House bound for his Florida mansion. The Democrat has been sworn in in a ceremony in which, for the first time in decades, the outgoing leader has not been present.

“He seems like a very happy old man looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. I am delighted to see him!” Greta Thunberg has been the message that she has published on her account of the social network of the blue bird, a message full of irony which she has accompanied with A photograph of Donald Trump saying goodbye as he climbs into the helicopter in which he and his wife Melania Trump have left the White House. The young woman has paraphrased the republican’s mockery on Twitter in connection with the speech she starred at the UN in September 2019, in which she uttered the remembered phrase of “how dare you?” At the time, the one who was the highest US president said of the Swedish activist that it was “a very happy young woman looking to a bright and wonderful future.”

This Wednesday is, for the moment, the last scuffle that the Swedish activist and the former US president star in social networks, since in recent years different messages have been sent through them. “It’s so ridiculous. Greta should work on her anger management problem and then go see a good old movie with a friend. Relax, Greta, relax!” wrote for example Donald Trump on December 12, 2019 after the magazine Time chose the Nordic protagonist of the year and with which the young trolley the Republican candidate almost 11 months later, specifically on November 5 after the elections for the presidency of the United States, when he published the following message: “How ridiculous. Trump should work on his anger management problem and then go see a good movie with a friend! Relax, Donald, relax!”
