Greta Thunberg trolls Trump with throwback to his ‘anger management’ tweet

Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg mocked President Trump’s calls to stop the 2020 election vote count on Thursday — by mimicking a statement he made about her last year on Twitter.

The 17-year-old Swedish activist responded to a tweet from the president reading “STOP THE COUNT!” sent earlier on Thursday.

“So ridiculous. Donald must work on his Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Donald, Chill!” Thunberg quipped.

That was a throwback to a tweet from Trump directed at the teenager back in December 2019, after she was named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year.”

The president had retweeted the magazine photo of Thunberg and said: “So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!”

It isn’t the first time the two have sparred on Twitter.

In September 2019, Trump tweeted at the teen after she gave an impassioned speech to global leaders at the United Nations, saying they had “stolen my dreams and my childhood.”

“She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!” Trump wrote sarcastically of Thunberg.

The environmental advocate fired back by changing her Twitter bio to: “A very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future.”

Thunberg  — who has become the global face of anti-greenhouse-gas activism — endorsed Democrat Joe Biden for president last month.
