Greta Thunberg snubs Donald Trump in blistering attack – ‘He sees me as a threat’

Young climate activist Greta Thunberg hit out at US President Donald Trump in a blistering attack. Ms Thunberg was guest editing an episode of BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, where she gave an interview about her packed year. President Trump has been vocal about the young activist more than once, saying she has “anger management” issues.

The two nearly met face-to-face at the UN Climate Summit in New York this year.

A picture of Greta’s stormy face when she saw President Trump enter the conference went viral.

Asked what she would have said if she had the chance to speak to him, Ms Thunberg replied: “Honestly I don’t think I would have said anything.

“He’s obviously not listening to scientists and experts.”

She continued: “Why would he listen to me? So I probably wouldn’t have said anything, wouldn’t have wasted my time.”

Asked if the US President is one of the people who see her as a “threat”, the climate campaigner said: “I don’t know about that.

“It’s possible. Me, myself alone, I’m not much of a threat.

“But I’m a part of a big movement that they probably see as a threat.”

The Swedish climate activist made waves at the UN Climate Summit.

She received praise and criticism alike for an emotional speech.

Ms Thunberg accused world leaders of having stolen her “dreams and childhood with empty words”.

She also blasted them for ignoring science behind the climate crisis.

She said: “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!”
