Revenge is a dish best served cold, and Greta Thunberg seems to know that. The 17-year-old climate activist waited 11 months before delivering a stinging burn to US President Donald Trump using his own words.
In 2019, the US President had mocked Greta Thunberg when she was named Time Magazine’s person of the year. The environmental campaigner recycled Mr Trumps’ own words on Thursday to take a dig at his baseless allegations of voter fraud.
“So ridiculous. Donald must work on his Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill, Donald, Chill!” Greta Thunberg tweeted Thursday, responding to a tweet from Donald Trump that read “STOP THE COUNT!”

Greta Thunberg’s tweet was phrased exactly like Donald Trump’s December 2019 insult directed at her. Mr Trump had criticised Time Magazine’s decision to name the teenage climate activist as person of the year and written, “So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!”

Donald Trump, offering no evidence, has claimed that the election was stolen from him. He lambasted election workers and alleged fraud in the states where results from a dwindling set of uncounted votes are pushing Democrat Joe Biden nearer to victory.
