- Story Text: U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday (September 23) tweeted about climate activist Greta Thunberg linking to video of the Swedish teenager opening the U.N. Climate Action Summit visibly emotional as she condemned world leaders for failing to stem the tide of climate change.
She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!," read Trump's tweet.
Earlier on Monday, teenage Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg watched on quietly from across the room as Trump entered the UN and stole the show speaking with reporters.
Thunberg, who sailed across the Atlantic from Britain to the United States in a zero-carbon emissions boat to protest air travel emissions, began protesting outside the Swedish parliament to bring attention to climate change. Since her protest began, teenagers in dozens of countries have followed suit, culminating in climate strikes in more than 150 countries last week.
