During a radio interview Monday morning, teen climate activist Greta Thunberg claimed she wouldn’t meet with President Trump because it’d be a waste of her time. greta thunberg trump
In the midst of a discussion on BBC Radio 4, Thunberg was asked what she might have said to the President had they met at the United Nations earlier this year.
“Honestly, I don’t think I would have said anything because obviously he’s not listening to scientists and experts, so why would he listen to me?” she exclaimed.
Thunberg added, “So I probably wouldn’t have said anything, I wouldn’t have wasted my time.”

Because nothing helps promote your cause more than ignoring people who may not agree with it.

The Trump/Thunberg Feud
The interview served as the next line of attack in a burgeoning feud between Thunberg and Trump, the former who seems to take it seriously and the latter who digs at her because it drives global warming extremists batty.
The teenager later claimed world leaders are “terrified” of her, which is allegedly why they offer up criticisms.
“Those attacks are just funny because they obviously don’t mean anything,” she said.
“I guess of course it means something — they are terrified of young people bringing change which they don’t want — but that is just proof that we are actually doing something and that they see us as some kind of threat,” Greta claimed.
Trump has taken a few shots at Thunberg, knowing full well it brings out the crazies.
“Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend!” he said after learning she’s been named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year. “Chill Greta, Chill!”

Chill, Greta, Chill
Greta most decidedly was not chill at the aforementioned United Nations meeting, having been upstaged when President Trump strolled past her with a throng of reporters, not a care in the world.

Following the accolades received by Time, Thunberg was challenged to a debate on climate change by a fellow teenager, conservative CJ Pearson.
Thus far, she has not answered the challenge. Perhaps engaging in a debate and sharing ideas is a waste of time in her mind as well.
