The 17-year-old climate activist bested Trump at the Twitter game as she used his own jibe against him.
The Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg delivered one of the sickest burns on Donald Trump as she told the President to chill and "work on his anger management problem." Thunberg tweeted at the President as he seemed to have a meltdown on Twitter, reported PEOPLE. Trump had tweeted, "stop the count," in response to the mail-in ballots being counted in various crucial states. The 17-year-old climate activist quote tweeted Trump and 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!" Twitter soon realized that Greta Thunberg was merely echoing the words Donald Trump had aimed at her over a year ago after she was named TIME's 2019 Person of the Year. Trump, the magazine's 2016 Person of the Year, didn't take too kindly to the then Greta Thunberg being awarded the title. Instead of congratulating her, the President, like a petulant child, hit out at the 16-year-old. He tweeted, "So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!"

Thunberg trolled the President at the time by changing her bio which read, "A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend." She wasn't done though; she exacted her revenge a year later, and boy did she take him to the cleaners. Trump didn't respond to her jibe but he had bigger things on his plate, with his re-election hopes coming crashing down in real-time. At the time of writing this article, Trump was trailing Biden in Arizona, Nevada, and Georgia. Trump was having a meltdown on Twitter, with the President falsely claiming that the election was being rigged and the votes counted were illegal. There was no evidence to support Trump's claims and Twitter responded by flagging his tweets as disinformation.
Trump's battle with Thunberg has been going on for more than a year but the President simply couldn't stomach the fact that the world took Thunberg more seriously than him. Last year, Thunberg delivered a thundering speech at the UN Global Climate Action, telling world leaders, "You are still not mature enough to tell it like it is. You are failing us." As the activist chided leaders for their immaturity, Trump took to Twitter to mock Greta Thunberg's angry speech at the UN summit, tweeting, "She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!” US Senator Bob Mendez tweeted: At the UN summit, we’ve seen a brave world leader calling for bold action on climate change. We’ve also witnessed a petulant child living in fantasy land. The world leader is 16-year old activist Greta Thunberg. The child is United States President Donald Trump.
In her speech, she accused the adults of not being up to the task. "This is all wrong. I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you!" said Thunberg. She also slammed world leaders for not looking past money and economic growth. "People are suffering, people are dying, entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are at the beginning of mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of endless economic growth," said Thunberg. She gave Trump a death stare as he made an appearance at the summit. Her apparent anger resonated with people all over the world and went viral instantly on social media.
