The 16-year-old, who was in New York to attend a climate change summit, fixed her gaze on Trump as he arrived to attend a meeting on religious freedom, the Guardian reported. The moment was caught on camera and was widely circulated on social media.

Julián Castro, the Democratic presidential contender, shared the video along with a caption that read: “I think a lot of us can relate.”

Thunberg’s reaction to Trump generated quite a buzz on social media. Here, take a look:

Earlier in her speech at the climate summit, a visibly emotional Thunberg had slammed the world leaders and accused them of stealing her childhood. The young activist, who kickstarted a global movement against inaction towards climate change, said, “You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words.”

However, Trump later mocked Thunberg’s speech and tweeted, “She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future.”
