Greta Thunberg's speech has attracted much attention because of her sharp words addressed to world leaders:
- You come to us young for hope - how dare you? You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words ... All you can talk about is money and stories of endless economic growth - how dare you, she asked at the opening of the UN Climate Summit.
The speech has been both praised and criticized. The fact that Greta Thunberg was emotional during her speech has been interpreted by some as not feeling well mentally and that she is under severe pressure. In a debate on the Fox News television channel, the conservative debater Michael Knowles called her a "mentally ill Swedish child" who "is being exploited by her parents and the international left".Trump is tweeting ironically
When US President Donald Trump, who was originally not to attend the climate summit, still showed up, a photographer captured how Greta Thunberg viewed him with critical eyes.
The US President himself has responded to Greta Thunberg's speech with a tweet:
“She seems to be a young happy girl who looks forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see! ”
