Count the people of New Zealand among the many who are furious with President Trump’s decision to betray the planet and international community by withdrawing the United States from the Paris Climate Accord.
Luckily for them, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrived just in time for them to express their frustration, and according to the below tweets, they found some very clever ways to let him know exactly how they felt.
In addition to welcoming Tillerson with less than distinguished one-finger salutes, children threw water-filled condoms at a giant orange papier-mâché effigy of Trump. It may seem harsh, but after Trump’s regime launched a full-scale assault on the planet, this is far better than Tillerson deserves.
US media travelling with Sec of State Rex Tillerson surprised by the number of people flipping the bird at his motorcade in Wellington.
