People Aghast at Trump's Tweet
Greta must work on her anger management problem? Are you serious? I can’t believe Trump is this petty, dumb, and blackhearted to bully a 16-year-old kid out of pure jealousy that she made the cover of Time Magazine for Person of the Year over him. Trump needs to deal with it.

Nothing like going after a young girl with Asperger Syndrome to drive home the point that you are fit for office.#BeBest my ass.

The young climate activist gained prominence and shot to fame in 2018 after her impassioned speech at the United Nations in 2019, garnering support to fight climate change. She also protested alone outside the Swedish parliament during school hours on Fridays when she was only 15.
Time magazine's editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal, speaking about the magazine naming the young activist as person of the year, told TODAY that, "She became the biggest voice on the biggest issue facing the planet this year, coming from essentially nowhere to lead a worldwide movement." Thunberg shared her image on Time magazine's cover and said that it was "unbelievable". "Wow, this is unbelievable! I share this great honour with everyone in the #FridaysForFuture movement and climate activists everywhere," she tweeted in gratitude.
