When US Prez Donald Trump signed an executive order to restrict abortion in the country, it sparked many protests all over the world, both virtually and in reality. While civilians are talking about it, the Deputy PM of Sweden, Isabella Lövin, has become the first politician to openly protest the picture on social media.
A picture of Trump signing the order along with men standing beside him in his office in the White House went viral a few days ago raising eyebrows. In response to this, Lovin, Sweden’s Deputy PM also uploaded a picture of herself and a few other female politicians in her office, signing an executive order concerning climate change.

Along with the picture, Lovin, who is also the climate minister apart from being the Deputy PM, wrote, “Just signed referral of Swedish #climate law, binding all future governments to net zero emissions by 2045. For a safer and better future.”
Lovin did not directly criticise Trump’s all men picture but this seemed like a subtle hint, defining her aversion to his picture. Her picture had her fellow politicians, among whom one was pregnant.
“We are a feminist government, which shows in this photo. Ultimately, it is up to the observer to interpret the photo,” she told The Local.
The picture Lovin posted also went viral on social media with many people understanding the undertone of it. The next day she thanked her supporters and wrote, “Delighted by huge interest In Swedish #climate law and feminist government!”
The picture is a significant inference as the bill aims to reduce greenhouse emission. Since Trump has taken charge as a president, the White House website has removed the climate change page.
