The Swedish matinee idol Greta Thunberg has thrown her sustainable solar-powered weight behind Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. With that endorsement, his election on November 3 becomes a sure thing.
Greta Thunberg takes a stand in American politics
Climate activist Greta Thunberg is making an exception to her line of not interfering in politics. In a tweet on Saturday, she urges Americans to vote for Democrat Joe Biden in the presidential election on November 3.
She justifies the exception on the grounds that the election in the USA goes beyond normal politics, especially from a climate perspective, and writes, “Organize yourselves and get everyone to vote for #Biden.”
The 17-year-old has something to say to Biden’s opponent, President Donald Trump. When Time Magazine named Thunberg as Person of the Year 2019, Trump mocked her in a tweet:
“So ridiculous. Greta needs to take care of her aggression problem and go see a good old movie with a friend. Relax, Greta, relax!” wrote the Republican president (TT)
