President Donald Trump jeered teenage Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg late on Monday night, Sept. 23, after she delivered an impassioned, accusatory speech about climate change at the United Nations.
“She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to be a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!” the president tweeted.

The 16-year-old Thunberg with her “How dare you” speech, railed at world leaders at the United Nations, saying they have stolen her dreams and childhood.
“My message is that we will be watching you,” Thunberg said. “This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here, I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean, yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you.”
The young climate activist’s speech made waves after she warned of “mass extinction” and attacked capitalism as “fairy tales of eternal economic growth.”
“People are suffering, people are dying, entire ecosystems are collapsing,” she tearfully proclaimed to world leaders. “We are in the beginning of the mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you.”
Thunberg’s speech sparked nationwide criticism raising questions on whether she is being manipulated for political purposes.
Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra described Thunberg as “a political pawn” for the media to push a “radical climate agenda.”
Fox News host Tucker Carlson portrayed the teenage climate activist and others as “a kind of human shield” the left uses to “demand power.”
“When you use children to demand power, they become a kind of human shield. You can hide safely behind them. No one can criticize you. But who would do something that unscrupulous? Anyone who would do that is someone who would literally do anything to seize control, and that’s exactly what they are doing,” Carlson said.
So who is Greta Thunberg and who is behind her?
It all started in 2018, Thunberg became famous for skipping school every Friday to stand outside the Swedish Parliament, protesting against authorities over the climate crisis and igniting an international movement, in which millions of other children followed suit.
Thunberg’s mother, Marlena Ernman, is a famous opera singer and left-liberal activist, who in the background has seemingly forged her child’s “dreams.”
The young girl also has her own coach Luisa-Marie Neubauer—a well-known climate activist from Germany, who works for an organization called “one foundation,” according to the Freewestmedia.
The foundation is supported by several well-known wealthy financiers, including “the multibillionaire oligarch George Soros, notorious for his currency speculation and maybe even more prominent as the father of the global, radical, and left-liberal lobby and activist network “Open Society,”” reported the Freewestmedia.
Thunberg came to the United States to attend the U.N. climate action summit by on a “zero-emissions” sailboat owned by the royal family of Monaco, according to the Breitbart.
