The namesake son of the US President has harshly criticized the Time for dedicated the cover to the 16-year-old climate activist. "Time forget those who protest in Hong Kong – says Donald Trump jr-, those who fight for life and for freedom, to promote a teenager who is a marketing gimmick ". Perhaps the brave protest of Hong Kong students, which has been going on for more than a year, would have deserved more luck in the Western press. And the cover of Time could have represented a great testimony of closeness and solidarity.
Time leaves out the Hong Kong Protesters fighting for their lives and push to push a teen being used as a marketing gimmick.
