USA Today reports:
President Donald Trump posted a mocking tweet of a 16-year-old climate activist who drew headlines this week for her speech at the United Nations.
Trump quoted a particularly emotional line from Greta Thunberg’s address to the Climate Action Summit in a late night tweet on Monday. In it, the Swedish teen said that “people are dying” and “we are in the beginning of a mass extinction.”
Trump, who is also in New York for the U.N., posted the message in a series of late night tweets. Trump, who once called climate change a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese, was expected to skip the climate summit at the U.N. on Monday but instead make a surprise visit for about 15 minutes.
She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see! https://t.co/1tQG6QcVKO
