Climate activist Greta Thunberg got her revenge against President Donald Trump — 11 months later.
“So ridiculous. Donald must work on his Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill, Donald, Chill!” the Swedish 17 year-old tweeted Thursday, responding to a tweet from the president that said “STOP THE COUNT!”

The tweet copied the exact phrasing of one Trump sent in December 2019 that criticized Time magazine’s decision to name her “Person of the Year.”
Within four hours, Thunberg’s tweet had surpassed Trump’s in both likes and retweets, and “Greta” was trending in the U.S.
Trump sarcastically called her “a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future” after her 2019 speech at a United Nations climate summit.
In that speech, Thunberg criticized world leaders for their “betrayal” of young people, condemning them for their lack of action on the climate crisis. Trump had skipped the summit.
In October, Thunberg endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden, who has pledged to return the U.S. to the Paris climate accord.
