Revenge is a dish best served cold and teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg got her revenge against US President Donald Trump 11 months later, using the latter’s own words against him.
The US elections 2020 does not appear to be going very well for Donald Trump. Amid the much-awaited election results, Donald Trump has urged to stop the counting of votes as he trails behind Democratic challenger Joe Biden. Trump has also filed lawsuits alleging fraud amid the ongoing counting. Thunberg, who was mocked by Donald Trump in a tweet when she was named Time magazine’s person of the year, saw an opportunity for a clapback and took it.
‘Chill Donald, chill’
Her tweet was in response to Trump’s tweet calling for a halt to votes being counted in the presidential election, throwing out allegations of voter fraud. Mimicking a tweet Donald Trump aimed at her last year, Thunberg tweeted that he needs to ‘chill’ and work on his “anger management”.
So ridiculous. Donald must work on his Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Donald, Chill! https://t.co/4RNVBqRYBA
