Famous fans like Alyssa Milano and Bette Midler also praised Greta on Twitter following the president's outrageous remarks about the TIME Person of the Year victor.

US First Lady Melania Trump listens as US President Donald Trump speaks during the Congressional Ball in the Grand Foyer of the White House on December 12, 2019, in Washington, DC. Their son is not an activist who travels the globe giving speeches. "I disagree with her, I think everyone knows how I feel about climate change's religion on the left but i'm not going to attack a 16-year-old the same way that I don't agree with attacking Barron Trump".

The first couple has tried to give Barron the most normal life a teenage child of a president can have, keeping him out of the public eye and shepherding him to school with a peer group.

Thunberg, too, has responded to the argument that her climate activism is political.

Ms Thunberg told the crowd in Turin that world leaders were running away from their responsibilities to fight climate change.

There were also suggestions that Trump was targeting Thunberg because of her Asperger's diagnosis. "We want to explain our goals to everyone and invite everyone to come Friday after Friday, every single week". However, she has regularly been accused of hypocrisy given her husband's penchant for personally attacking others using social media.

"[The first lady] told me she sometimes takes the president's phone away", Rogers tweeted at the time, per Newsweek.

From being fired for lying as a journalist to the crowd's questions about Brexit, Johnson had gained the public's interest. Ruth Smeeth, a Labour MP who lost her Midlands seat, said Corbyn should take the blame for the party's defeat and resign.

On Thursday morning, the President accused Thunberg of having an "Anger Management problem" and mockingly suggested that she "go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend" in a tweet that was met with backlash.

Following the President's tweet, Thunberg updated her Twitter bio to reflect Trump's comments.

Thunberg is just 16 years old is on the autism spectrum.

In September she described herself as a "very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future" after the president sneered the same words in a sarcastic tone following her United Nations speech.

In naming her Person of the Year, Time magazine wrote that Thunberg "has offered a moral clarion call to those who are willing to act, and hurled shame on those who are not".

Trump has said he doesn't believe global warming is mainly caused by humans.
