AOC Defends Greta Thunberg, Rips Trump for “getting rankled by a 16 year old activist”

Freshman lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended teen climate activist Greta Thunberg after President Trump commented on her “Person of the Year” honor from Time Magazine.

AOC reacted to Trump calling the honor “So ridiculous” by mocking Trump and writing “Because nothing says “mature temperament” like getting rankled by a 16 year old activist.

AOC also commented on Greta’s honor by writing:

Incredible, inspiring, and well-deserved.

The time for climate action and youth movements is now.

Although many did not agree it was the right choice.
