Trump Ridicules Teen Climate Activist Greta Thunberg

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.
