Greta Thunberg, Not Donald Trump, is the True Leader of the Free World | Opinion
Greta Thunberg is the sixteen year old Swedish girl who a year ago began a lone school strike for climate action, spending every Friday striking from school as a form of protest. Owing to her unapologetic persistence and moral clarity, she was given an opportunity to address the UN Climate Summit in New York this week, where she admonished global leaders who have enabled a policy of delay and inaction when it comes to the climate crisis.
In response, Donald Trump sarcastically quote-tweeted her admonitions of mass extinction, suffering people and collapsing ecosystems with a sneering quip (“a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!” ).
