Donald Trump humiliated: Greta Thunberg takes one last swipe at ex-POTUS on Twitter
Now-former President Donald Trump is no longer the Commander-in-Chief, but it did not stop many of his well-known critics from taking a swipe at him on his last day. Among them is renowned climate change activist Greta Thunberg, who used Trump’s words against him on Twitter.
On inauguration day, Trump boarded Marine One and Air Force One for the last time on the way to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. Thunberg, who has often been mocked and criticized by Trump’s supporters, took one more jab at the then-outgoing president on Twitter. Thunberg shared a photo of Trump waving to his supporters before boarding Marine One and used his comments about her against him as the caption. Trump has been indefinitely suspended from the platform and did not attend the inauguration.
“He seems like a very happy old man looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!” tweeted Thunberg.
Thunberg’s caption references Trump’s comments about her when she spoke before world leaders at the United Nations about the dangers of climate change. The two have since had a feud on the platform. Trump’s indefinite suspension was in the wake of the Capitol riots last January 6. Thunberg has often used Trump’s words against him in her pushbacks from his insults and sometimes has added his comments on her Twitter profile. One other instance was last November 6, when Trump was enraged over his election loss to Joe Biden, who was inaugurated as the 46th President this week.
Although Twitter has already taken action towards permanently suspending Trump from the platform, Facebook has yet to do the same thing to the former president on its platform. The platform announced that it was handing over responsibility on whether or not to permanently suspend Trump to its Oversight board, which has accepted the case.
“The Oversight Board has been closely following the events in the United States and Facebook’s response to them, and the Board is ready to provide a thorough and independent assessment of the company’s decision,” the board announced through a statement. The platform’s vice president for global affairs and communications, Nick Clegg, praised the decision.
