Trump Attacks Climate Activists in Speech Before World Leaders

While his impeachment is underway in Washington, D.C., President Donald Trump is in Davos, Switzerland, at the World Economic Forum — an annual gathering of the top figures in politics and finance — where the issue of climate change is on the top of the conversation. But Trump wasn’t eager to fall in step with the conversation. Instead, he was critical of the climate activists.

Speaking to the world leaders, Trump appeared to take a thinly-veiled shot at 17-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, saying, “To embrace the possibilities of tomorrow, we must reject the perennial prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse.”

He added later, “They are the errors of yesterday’s fortune tellers and we have them and I have them and they want to see us do badly, but we don’t let that happen.”

During an interview with The Wall Street Journal in Davos, Trump was asked about Thunberg but said, “I don’t really know anything about her,” and added later that she is “very angry.”

This is hardly the first time that Trump has taken a shot at Thunberg. After the young activist was named Time Magazine’s person of the year, Trump complained on Twitter, “Greta must work on her anger management problem, then go to a good, old fashioned movie with a friend.”

During her speech at Davos, Thunberg asked the leaders, “I wonder, what will you tell your children was the reason to fail and leave them facing the climate chaos you knowingly brought upon them?” Later, she added, “Our house is still on fire. Your inaction is fueling the flames by the hour.”

This isn’t the first time that Thunberg has spoke to the forum. In 2019, she told the leaders, “our house is on fire,” and added later, “I want you to panic.”

  1. Obviously the concept of fungible assets escape the SyPhyllis infected one and the Genitally Confused idiot. Your cluelessness is on display to us all and you’re too stupid to recognize it.

    SyPhyllis, what supporting evidence do you have to support your 17 Year old puppet girl? Do you always take your orders and life directions from autistic teenagers who are obedience trained by her whackjob parents?

  2. “Mexico is already paying for the wall via tariffs” An Unhung Chad

    Uh, can you explain how THAT works to us confused people?

    1. LOL…If they believe China is paying for Trump’s import tariffs, what makes you surprised they aren’t gullible enough to believe Mexico is paying? Of course he believes it as it is what Trump told his Wisconsin rally last Tuesday night. LOL….and he speaks of MY ignorance. PLEASE somebody come up with a plan to address the INSANITY spreading across America.

  3. SyPhylis reveals her ignorance by revealing that she sides with a 17 year old autistic puppet girl who’s strings are pulled by her actor parents, over the wisdom of Scientists that agree that science is not settled by consensus, but by facts!

    1. WHAT are the facts you are referring that supports Trump’s position that global warming is a hoax?

  4. Greta beat him for Time’s Person of the Year. OF COURSE he attacked Greta. The only voters that expected Trump having a sudden emotional maturity development, also believed Mexico would pay for the wall, tax cuts would pay for themselves, and Trump would not be golfing or hanging out at Mar a largo.

    1. See above. BTW, Mexico is already paying for the wall via tariffs and have stepped up their own illegal immigrant laws. Your willful ignorance is showing!

    2. you are right some what. she did win time person of the year. OUR president could never have won, because it’s a left wing magazine. if they did give it to him they lose their subscribers. i read that the award is pick by one person. sheb won because she yell at some old men and white men how darn you.
