Greta Thunberg trolls Trump over ‘happy young girl’ tweet

And while Thunberg did not specifically address the president's tweet, she briefly changed her Twitter bio to include his same wording and phrasing.

Thunberg, 16, denounced world leaders on Monday for failing to tackle climate change in a speech at the start of a climate summit at the United Nations in NY.

"Mr Trump sarcastically wrote: "'She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. "So nice to see!" the USA leader wrote in response to a scathing speech that Thunberg gave, in which she accused world leaders of ruining her childhood and marching humankind toward extinction.

CNN's Chris Cillizza weighed in on air, saying he gives Thunberg "a ton of credit because she did something which I would never do".

Murphy, a Democrat, has a progressive view when it comes to climate change.

Ms Thunberg's global climate movement "Fridays for Future" began in August 2018 when she started sitting alone outside Sweden's parliament with her now iconic sign reading "school strike for the climate".

Amid the intense criticism over Knowles' remarks Monday night after a clip of the show went viral, Fox News apologized to Thunberg. Knowles was quickly admonished by commentator Chris Hahn, who was also on the segment.

"People are dying; entire ecosystems are collapsing", she said. Many critics blasted the use of children as "human shields" in political debates and condemned the climate fear-mongering that has so clearly terrified the 16-year-old - who has been formally diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome coupled with high-functioning autism and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) - as a form of "child abuse".

In response to the outcry over the comment, Fox News sent an apology statement to outlets, including the Washington Post. She demands that we take people's arguments and beliefs seriously, instead of dismissing them based on perceptions rooted in identity.

This would be an argument, I guess, if anyone was actually assert a blanket "you can't criticize kids" argument. Knowles also received more immediate pushback from fellow Story guest Christopher Hahn, a Democratic Party activist who urged Knowles to "have some couth" when speaking about a young girl.

"I worry about her going the same way as child TV stars", he said.

She's "arrogant" because she's doing anything she can to try to protect the planet you live on?

Karl continued, referencing former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's comments on Tuesday, where he said Greta's speech encapsulated "the anger of that generation and does so effectively".

"You're attacking a child".
