Even as Donald Trump continued to tweet about the US presidential election results, teenage climate change activist Greta Thunberg responded to one of his tweets by parodying something the US President said to her in 2019. Many on social media have declared it the ‘best mic-drop ever’ and led to her name dominating trends on Twitter.

“So ridiculous. Donald must work on his Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill, Donald, Chill!” Thunberg tweeted, in response to the US President’s tweet that said “STOP THE COUNT!”.

The tweet has been liked 1.2 million times on Twitter in less than 12 hours.

People quickly realised it was a parody of a tweet by Trump in 2019, when Thunberg was named TIME magazine’s “Person of the Year.”

In his December 2019 tweet, Trump told Thunberg to work on her “anger management problem” and to “go to an old-fashioned movie with a friend”. In response to Trump’s tweet, Thunberg had changed her Twitter bio to say: “A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.”

Here’s how others on social media reacted to Thunberg’s latest tweet:

Trump and Thunberg have sparred on Twitter on other occasions as well.

The US president had called her “a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future” after her 2019 speech at the United Nations climate summit. Thunberg responded by changing her bio on Twitter to match his description.
