‘Chill Greta, Chill!’ Trump scolds Thunberg on Twitter after TIME names her Person of the Year

U.S. President Donald Trump implied that 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg has anger issues and suggested she should chill out after TIME magazine named her Person of the Year.

“So ridiculous,” Trump tweeted on Thursday when commenting on another tweet where Thunberg was congratulated.

“Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!” tweeted Trump.

Thunberg responded by changing her Twitter bio to “A teenager working on her anger management problem.”

Trump’s comments sparked a backlash against him, however, accusing him of bullying and misogyny.

When Trump and Thunberg were both at the UN General Assembly in New York giving speeches in September they didn’t speak to each other. Photographers, however, caught Thunberg giving Trump an epic cold scowl, which prompted online memes.

And Thunberg continues to be fodder for political cartoonists.
