Recently, 16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg was named as Time magazine’s Person of the Year.
KAMI learned that US President Donald Trump mocked Thunberg after she was given such recognition.
In a report by Buzzfeed News (authored by Clarissa-Jan Lim), Trump has aired his thoughts on Twitter.
"So ridiculous," Trump wrote on Thursday.
"Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!" he added.
As a response to the tweet of Trump, Thunberg changed her bio on Twitter.
“A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend,” she wrote.
In 2015, Trump also tweeted about Time magazine not picking him as the Person of the Year and chose the “person who is ruining Germany.”
Meanwhile, in 2017, Trump said in a different tweet that the Time called him in the previous year because he was “probably” going to be named as the Person of the Year. However, Time denied this claim and honored “The Silence Breakers.”
Greta Thunberg became popular after her fiery speech at the United Nations Climate Action Summit. She slammed world leaders for showing more interest in making money rather than saving the planet.
She also went viral for her icy stare towards Trump when she saw him in the same event.
