The Swedish Deputy Prime Minister, Isabella Lovin, might have just trolled Donald Trump and the US government with one perfect picture.
Isabella Lovin, has published a photograph of herself signing a climate bill surrounded by her closest female colleagues, apparently mocking a photo of US president Donald Trump.
Isabella Lovin, who also serves as environment and development aid minister, is seated in the photo at a desk as she signs the bill under the watchful eye of seven female colleagues, including one who is visibly pregnant.
The picture seems to be a reference to a series of photos of Donald Trump signing executive orders , including the reintroduction of the ‘global gag rule’, which were widely mocked.
The pictures were taken of Donald Trump on January 23rd in the White House, as he signed a decree barring US federal funding for foreign NGOs that support abortion, as his all-male colleagues looked on.
Sweden, a pioneer in women’s rights, is known for its high level of women in the workplace, including in parliament and government.
“We are a feminist government, which shows in this photo. Ultimately it is up to the observer to interpret the photo,” Ms Lovin said.
The climate bill she is signing in the photo aims to make Sweden carbon neutral by 2045 and “marks a new era in Swedish climate politics,” Ms Lövin wrote.
