With the US election count still underway, Democratic hopeful Joe Biden lis closing in on winning the Presidency but it is still too close to call. Mr Trump and his campaign have already filed multiple lawsuits in various states such as Michigan claiming voting fraud.
In light of the accusations, the incumbent President tweeted: “STOP THE COUNT!”
Mocking the incumbent president, Climate change activist Greta Thunberg tweeted back: “So ridiculous.
“Donald must work on his Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend!
“Chill Donald, Chill!”
This tweet is nearly a word-for-word parody of Mr Trump’s own words which he wrote last December after Geta was named Person of the Year by Time Magazine.
At the time, the President said: “So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!”
Soon after Mr Trump’s tweet, Greta changed her Twitter bio to refer to herself as a “teenager working on her anger management problem.
“Currently chilling and watching a good old fashion movie with a friend.”
Earlier this week, the teenage environmental activist was asked about her thoughts on the US election candidates, and discussed whether Mr Trump or Mr Biden’s policies would affect change.
Ms Thunberg has been outspoken on Mr Trump’s presidency, with the two exchanging barbs in public.
Her comments come as the election polls open today, with the former Vice President enjoying a lead of the incumbent President.
In an interview with the New York Times, she said: “Maybe if Trump wins that will be the spark that makes people angry enough to start protesting and really demanding things for the climate crisis.

“I think we can safely say that if Trump wins it would threaten many things.
“But I’m not saying that Joe Biden is good or his policies are close to being enough. They are not.
“When we say ‘greener policies’, what does ‘green’ even mean? Green is a colour.
“So when people say that we are going to invest in green investments, that can mean anything.
“The Green New Deal is very far from being enough, but as you said, it has changed the debate. It could be a small step in the right direction, and that’s the way we have to communicate it.
“To say, ‘This is far from being enough’ and then always show where we need to be.”
Yesterday, the US official withdrew from the Paris climate agreement, after a three-year delay.
The Paris deal was drafted in 2015 to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change, something with President Donald Trump has denied.
In response to Mr Trump’s decision to leave the Paris agreement, Andrew Light, a former senior climate change official in the Obama administration said it hurts the US reputation.
He told the BBC: “Being out formally obviously hurts the US reputation.
“This will be the second time that the United States has been the primary force behind negotiating a new climate deal – with the Kyoto Protocol we never ratified it, in the case of the Paris Agreements we left it.
“So, I think it’s obviously a problem.”
