Following the President’s tweet, Thunberg updated her Twitter bio to reflect Trump’s comments: “A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.”
In September, following her excoriation of world leaders at the UN, Trump tweeted of Thunberg: “She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!”
At the time, Thunberg also updated her Twitter bio to refer to herself using Trump’s words.
“Thunberg has become the biggest voice on the biggest issue facing the planet—and the avatar of a broader generational shift in our culture that is playing out everywhere from the campuses of Hong Kong to the halls of Congress in Washington,” Time editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal wrote.
