The Thunberg effect is not slowing down, with the marches taking place worldwide in the name of #FridaysForFuture, an initiative spearheaded by Greta Thunberg herself.
The 16-year-old Swedish climate activist called out world leaders for not doing enough during her impassioned speech.
The clip of her speech was retweeted by President Trump, who responded with the message, “She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!”
Many assumed Trump was “trolling” the teenager, and Thunberg acknowledged the President by using his words as her Twitter bio temporarily, which read, “A very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future.”
This time, Thunberg shifts her focus to Vladimir Putin instead. The Russian president declared that he didn’t “share the common excitement” about her UN speech and that she was “poorly informed.”
Putin explained that, Thunberg does not understand the complexities of the “modern world.”
But he is sure that Thunberg “is a kind and very sincere girl.” Such complex situations have called upon adults to act, without having to “bring teenagers in,” he claimed.
She's "a kind girl and very sincere" but adults need to "shield [teenagers] from extreme emotions that could destroy a personality."— Bloomberg TicToc (@tictoc) October 3, 2019

And with that, Thunberg changed her bio, which now reads as, “A kind but poorly informed teenager.”
Greta has changed her description on response to Putin's assessment that she means well but is poorly informed. 😁😁😁👏👏👏❤️#climatestrike #StrikeWithUs #FridaysForFuture #schoolstrike4climate #climate pic.twitter.com/pc0t8iiIdq— Moms Clean Air Force #ClimateAction (@CleanAirMoms) October 3, 2019
