Thunberg began a Global Movement which started in August 2018 by holding a sign that read Skolstrejk för klimatet means “School Strike for Climate.” In the 16 months since, she has addressed heads of state at the U.N, met with the Pope, sparred with the President of the United States and inspired 4 million people to join the global climate strike on September 20, 2019, in what was the largest climate demonstration in human history.
On December 11th, Wednesday , Time magazine named Greta Thunberg as the 2019 “Person of the year”, noting that she“represents a broader generational shift. Thunberg is also by far the youngest Time’s Person of the Year.
President Donald Trump who has a long history with Time magazine and has been completely desperate to get on the cover called Greta Thunberg’s selection at Time’s Person of the Year as ‘ridiculous‘ and said she should ‘chill.’
16 Year old Thunberg gave back as good as she got at the president by updating her Twitter profile biography as, “A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.”
Critics were quick to accuse Trump of bullying a child — something his own wife, Melania Trump, condemned as part of her anti-bullying Be Best campaign last week.
