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.
