Greta Tintin Eleonora Ernman Thunberg FRSGS (born January 3, 2003) is a Swedish climate change environmental activist whose movement has gained international attention. Thunberg is known for her straightforward manner of speaking, both in public and to political leaders and assemblies, urging immediate action to address what she calls the climate crisis.
Greta Thunberg has mastered the art of perfect provocation when it comes to President Trump. Thunberg, an environmental activist, was named the "Person of the Year" of Time Magazine for 2019, prompting the outrage of President Trump, who criticized Thunberg on Twitter.
Greta Thunberg first became known for her activism in August 2018 when, at the age of 15, she started to spend her school days outside the Swedish Parliament calling for stronger action on global warming by holding up a sign saying' School Climate Strike.' Soon, other students in their own communities engaged in similar protests.

Trump Attacks Greta Thunberg On Twitter—And Greta Trolls Him Back
President Trump and Greta Thunberg's Twitter War picked up Thursday morning — a day after Time magazine named Thunberg his Person Of The Year — which Trump called "ridiculous," and advised Thunberg to "work on her Anger Management problem."
So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill! https://t.co/M8ZtS8okzE— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 12, 2019
Thunberg answered Twitter almost immediately. Never overtly, but more subtly. She updated her profile on Twitter to read:
A teenage girl is working on her anger management problem. Currently playing and watching an old-fashioned movie with a friend.
This is not Trump's first attack on Thunderbolt. In an outrageous speech at the annual US climate change conference in September, Greta condemned the actions of world leaders.
You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. And yet I’m one of the lucky ones. People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are at the beginning of mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!” She exclaimed during her speech.
Trump gave some condescending words on Twitter in response to the post. "She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future," Trump wrote. "So nice to see!"For one thing, it's far from over this Twitter feud. This public war of words will only get faster and faster as Thunberg's position increases.

Besides changing her Twitter bio, Greta focuses on her goal of trying to influence climate change policy around the world. She tweeted about the UK elections, saying, "Every vote is a seasonal choice. Vote for the children. Save the planet's save. Vote for generations to come. Voting for humanity. #GE2019 #UK Selections.
Wow, this is unbelievable! I share this great honour with everyone in the #FridaysForFuture movement and climate activists everywhere. #climatestrike https://t.co/2t2JyA6AnM pic.twitter.com/u4JUD4cgCz— Greta Thunberg (@GretaThunberg) December 11, 2019
Surprising fact is Hung in five of his golf clubs around the world, a fake Time magazine with Trump on its cover. Leaks that the bogus magazine appeared in 2017, and it was reported that the issue was simply faked. Finally, time members asked the golf clubs of Trump to delete the fakes from their walls.

A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics. Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) December 4, 2019
