Policy: – As Prime Minister, I must of course have a high tolerance. This is how it is when you make decisions that affect the everyday lives of many people, when you are passionate about what you believe in. Then it is a prerequisite, she writes on Facebook and Instagram Sunday. However, she adds:

– But there are words and comments that are so ugly that no one should have to endure them, regardless of whether you participate in the social debate or just stick to your own work.

Frederiksen says that recently she has been getting more and more excited. She encourages others to also share their experiences, because she wants to have a public debate about how to talk to each other.

On the Prime Minister’s Facebook post, she is met with support from other party colleagues.
