The 17-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg has mocked US President Donald Trump, she told him to ‘chill’over his continued demand the nation stop counting votes in the presidential election.
She took to social media to poke fun at the premier and urged him to ‘work on his anger management problem’.
The message mimicked a tweet the President had directed at her last year in which he reacted to the announcement that the environmental campaigner had become the youngest person to be named Person Of The Year by Time Magazine.
Taking to Twitter to reply to the President’s calls to ‘stop the count’, the teenager wrote: ‘So ridiculous. Donald must work on his anger management problem, then go to a good old-fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Donald, Chill!’
Last December, President Trump told Thunberg to ‘work on her anger management problem’ and ‘get a good old-fashioned movie with a friend’ after she was awarded with the Person Of The Year accolade.
In his tweet last year the President wrote: ‘So ridiculous. Greta must work on her anger management problem, then go to a good old-fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, chill!’
Following the president’s comments, the activist, who was 16 at the time, updated her Twitter bio to read: ‘A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old-fashioned movie with a friend.’
Thousands of Twitter users rushed to applaud Thunberg after she changed her bio to mock the President and the hashtag #GretaOutdidTrump began trending on the social media platform.
Last month the teenage activist also endorsed Democrat Joe Biden and urged voters to head to the polls and vote based on protecting the environment.
She said in a tweet: ‘From a climate perspective it’s very far from enough and many of you of course supported other candidates. But, I mean…you know…damn! Just get organised and get everyone to vote #Biden.’
In 2019, the teenager with Asperger’s syndrome became the face of the youth climate movement, drawing large crowds with her appearances at protests and conferences.
