Greta Thunberg on meeting Trump: "I don't understand why I would do that"

Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg dismissed the idea of meeting with President Trump when she appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Friday.

“Would you sit down with him [Trump] to help him understand climate change?” DeGeneres asked the 16-year-old.

“I don’t understand why I would do that,” Thunberg responded matter-of-factly, as the audience erupted in laughter. “”I don’t see what I could tell him that he hasn’t already heard, and I just think it would be a waste of time, really,” according to USA Today.

In September, Trump sarcastically praised the teen for her activism, sharing a clip of her speech at the United Nations. “She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!” the president tweeted.
