Duke of Sussex tells pranksters posing as Greta Thunberg: Trump ‘has blood on his hands’
Britain’s Prince Harry has attacked Donald Trump in a secretly recorded phone call, describing the president as one of the “very sick people” who run the world.
Harry was reportedly duped into a phone interview by Russian pranksters after they apparently convinced him he was speaking with teen activist Greta Thunberg and her father Svante.
Mentioning the presdient specifically by name serval times during the call, Harry blasted Trump as having “blood on his hands” for the deaths that occur as a result of natural disasters around the world.
Russian hoaxers phoned the prince at his luxury hideaway in Canada on two separate occasions earlier this year and tricked him into believing he was chatting with the Swedish environmentalists.
During the bombshell conversations, Harry hit out at the president for his environmental policies, declaring: “I think the mere fact that Donald Trump is pushing the coal industry is so big in America, he has blood on his hands.”
“Unfortunately the world is being led by some very sick people, so the people like yourselves and younger generations, are the ones that are going to make all the difference,” he later added.
According to The Sun, Russian pranksters Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, better known as Vovan and Lexus, were behind the hoax.
During the call, Harry hits out at President Trump for “pushing the coal industry so big in America, he has blood on his hands because of the effect that has on the climate and on the island nations far far away.”
“Again; out of sight, out of mind,” he added, saying that he has visited some of the affected areas, and seen how “people’s lives have been completely destroyed.”
“People are dying every single month by some form of natural disaster that has been created from this huge change in our climates.”
Harry also refuses to be drawn into the scandal surrounding Prince Andrew and his relationship with deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, stating the Duke of York is “completely separate from me and my wife” and he has “very little to say on it.”
The conversations are reportedly said to have taken place on New Year’s Eve and January 22.
In the calls, Prince Harry also talks about how he is “completely separate” from most of the Royal Family and explains that he withdrew from royal life to “protect my son.”
He adds that he and Meghan are finding everyday life “much better” and says, jokingly, “I can assure you, marrying a Prince or Princess is not all it’s made up to be.”
The prince goes on to speak about the difficulties he and Meghan faced after deciding to quit Britain.
“Um, it’s, that’s probably a conversation for another time, there’s lots of layers to it and lots of pieces to the puzzle,” he says.
“But sometimes the right decision isn’t always the easy one.”
Despite his concerns the environment, Prince Harry defended himself against criticism over his own use of private jets, explaining that his family uses planes “nowhere near as much as most people who do it for a night or weekends.”
World-renowned internet hoaxsters by trade, Vovan and Lexus have previously pulled off prank calls on Boris Johnson, Elton John, and Bernie Sanders.
