Greta Thunberg used Donald Trump's own words against him Thursday, tweeting some advice in response to the US president's "STOP THE COUNT!" tweet. "So ridiculous. Donald must work on his Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Donald, Chill!" the 17-year-old Swedish climate change activist wrote. As the Guardian reports, that's nearly verbatim Trump's December tweet about Thunberg, which he posted after she was named Time's youngest ever Person of the Year. As of this writing, Thunberg's tweet had 1.3 million likes to Trump's nearly 207,000. Reuters notes Thunberg previously poked fun at Trump's words by adding to her Twitter bio, "A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old-fashioned movie with a friend." (More Greta Thunberg stories.)
