President Trump trolled teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg on Monday, after she gave an angry, scathing speech at the United Nations earlier in the day.
My message is that we’ll be watching you.
This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you!
You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. And yet I’m one of the lucky ones. People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!
You are failing us. But the young people are starting to understand your betrayal. The eyes of all future generations are upon you. And if you choose to fail us, I say: We will never forgive you.
The left hailed Thunberg as a hero, using her speech to attack the president, who famously pulled the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accords in 2017. Several of Trump’s would-be rivals in the 2020 election praised her speech.
In response, Trump offered one of his signature tweets:
As bestselling author — and Breitbart News entertainment editor — Jerome Hudson notes in his book, 50 Things They Don’t Want You to Know, the U.S. has lowered emissions while growing its economy through the use of fracking — a practice that most of the Democratic candidates want to stop.
Thunberg did not endorse nuclear power — a zero-emissions technology — or any other solutions.
