According to a report by USA Today on November 5, the US media once joked that the Swedish “green girl” Greta Thunberg could “compete with anyone on earth,” even the US president. During the U.S. election, she was on the social media hot search list with a tweet because she mocked herself with “what Trump himself said.”
On Wednesday, local time in the United States, Trump said on social media: “Stop counting!” He hoped that “all voting” would stop, and Trump’s campaign team also announced that it would take legal action to prevent the counting of votes.
On Thursday, the 17-year-old Swedish girl responded to Trump’s tweet on Twitter: “How ridiculous. Donald must solve his anger management problem and then go to a good old-fashioned movie with a friend! Calm down! , Donald, calm down!”
The report pointed out that this tweet completely copied a tweet published by Trump last year.
In 2019, Thunberg delivered a speech at the United Nations Climate Summit. In that speech, Thunberg criticized the “betrayal” of young people by world leaders and condemned their lack of action in dealing with the climate crisis. It is reported that Trump was absent from that summit. In December 2019, US “Time” magazine nominated Thunberg as “Person of the Year”.
At that time, Trump posted a comment on Twitter: “How ridiculous. Greta must solve her anger management problem, and then go to a good old movie with friends! Calm down, Greta, calm down!”
According to the report, in four hours, Thunberg’s tweets and reposts exceeded that of the tweet released by Trump at the time, receiving more than 1 million likes and more than 300,000 reposts.
It is reported that Thunberg expressed support for the former US vice president and Democratic candidate Biden as early as October last year. Recently, Biden promised that if he is elected President of the United States, he will allow the United States to rejoin the Paris climate agreement after taking office.
