Greta Thunberg: I wouldn't have wasted my time meeting Trump at the UN

“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?” said Thunberg. “So I probably wouldn’t have said anything, I wouldn’t have wasted my time.”

Thunberg, who has Asperger’s syndrome, has been personally attacked by Trump on multiple occasions. The president seemed to sarcastically ridicule her speech to the U.N. when he called her “a very happy young girl” on Twitter, and after she was named Time magazine’s person of the year, Trump called it “so ridiculous,” then said Thunberg “must work on her Anger Management problem.”

Thunberg also used part of her interview to dismiss the insults flung her way, saying “Those attacks are just funny because they obviously don’t mean anything,…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.”
