Climate activist Greta Thunberg changed her bio on Twitter after US President Donald Trump said that she should "chill". "A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend," the biography read.
Trump's tweet came after the 16-year-old named as 2019 Person of the Year by Time magazine. Trump posted insults about Thunberg weeks after his family had outraged over the mention of teen son Barron at Congressional hearing.
Thunberg has caught the ire of many US conservatives for helping to spotlight the climate emergency which her critics pretend does not exist. But Trump’s attack on her, in personal terms, from his presidential bully pulpit, struck many observers as a marked and hypocritical escalation.
Trump, 73, tweeted that Thunberg, 16, who got diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, had an “anger management problem” and should “chill”. No pun apparently intended.
