Biden said Trump could learn from the 16-year-old, who was named Time's "Person of the Year," after the president targeted her in a tweet.

“What kind of president bullies a teenager?” the presidential candidate wrote. “@realDonaldTrump, you could learn a few things from Greta on what it means to be a leader.”


Biden’s tweet came in response to a post from the president telling Thunberg to work on her “Anger Management problem” and to “Chill.” 

Thunberg updated her Twitter bio in response to Trump's remarks, now describing herself as a “teen working on anger management.” The president’s campaign also edited his photo to replace Thunberg on the magazine cover and tweeted it Thursday.
