Democrat Congressman Hakeem Jeffries ripped President Trump for tweeting about Greta Thunberg’s “Person of the Year” honor in a rant that listed several individuals Trump has attacked.
This is a president that attacks everybody, to distract, attacks everybody who won’t bend the knee to Donald J. Trump. He’s attacked John McCain, a war hero. He’s attacked Mitt Romney, 2012 Republican nominee. He’s attacked Bob Mueller, a Marine [and] a distinguished professional in law enforcement. He’s attacked your former speaker, Paul Ryan. He’s attacked Gold Star Families. He even attacked, today, a 16-year-old teenage activist, Greta Thunberg. Are you here to defend that as well? And so what’s happened is instead of defending the substance of the allegation, you want to attack Joe Biden and his family.
"This is a president that attacks everybody to distract," Rep. Hakeem Jeffries says. He "attacks everybody who won't bend the knee to Donald J. Trump."

President Trump reacted to Greta’s honor by tweeting:
So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!
