PLYMOUTH, ENGLAND - AUGUST 14: Climate change activist Greta Thunberg speaks at a press conference before setting sail for New York in the 60ft Malizia II yacht from Mayflower Marina, on August 14, 2019 in Plymouth, England. Greta Thunberg is a teenage activist born in Sweden in 2003. She began protesting outside the Belgian Parliament aged 15 and started the School Strike for Climate movement which has gained global popularity seeing school students campaigning against Climate Change on Fridays instead of attending their lessons. Greta has stopped flying as the aviation industry is responsible for 12% of CO2 emissions from all forms of  transports. Once in New York she will attend a climate change conference.

It's been nearly a year since Donald Trump attacked Greta Thunberg with a sexist and ableist tweet after she was chosen as Time's Person of the Year, but on Nov. 6, Greta proved that she hadn't forgotten his comments and returned the favor with an epic troll of her own. Tweeting in response to his baseless accusations about voter fraud, Greta repurposed his original attack tweet, writing, "So ridiculous. Donald must work on his Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Donald, Chill!"

Donald's original tweet read, "So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!" By telling Greta to "chill," Donald's words came across as jealous taunt, and people were quick to call out the ableist language of the tweet, as Greta has Asperger's, which falls on the autism spectrum. They say good things come to those who wait, and if the below tweet is any indication, Greta has perfect timing.
