Former US President Donald Trump considered that his successor, Joe Biden, fell asleep during the UN climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland, because he “doesn’t really believe in the issue of climate change.”
“Joe Biden could not bear to hear so many false statements about global warming,” Trump said in a statement issued Monday evening. “Biden went to Europe to say that global warming was his highest priority, and immediately fell asleep in front of the eyes of the entire world.” during the conference itself.
The Republican politician considered that “no one will ever sleep” during such an event “if there is real enthusiasm and faith in this cause for him.”
Earlier in the day, the current US president grabbed the media’s attention as he appeared to be asleep during the 26th United Nations Conference of Parties to the Framework Convention on Climate Change in Glasgow.
Journalists noted that Biden could not keep his eyes open while listening to a speech by a human rights activist, Eddie Nadop, who was talking about the impact of climate change on the lives of people with disabilities.
The former US president, Biden’s rival in the 2020 elections, frequently uses the nickname “Sleeping Joe” to name the current US president.
