Melania Trump Releases A Statement In Response To Her Husband Mocking 16-Year-Old Greta Thunberg

Date December 16, 2019 13:49

Last week, 16-year-old environmental activist Greta Thunberg was named TIME magazine's 2019 Person of the Year for her tireless work towards the important cause.

While many people thought Greta deserves the honor, President Trump openly expressed his disdain over the magazine's choice on Twitter.

This is not the first time Donald Trump mentions Thunberg on social media as he and Greta seem to have mutual dislike of each other.

In response to Trump's tweet, Thunberg quickly changed her Twitter bio that started to read: "A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend."

Melania Trump issues a statement regarding Trump's tweet

Many wondered whether the First Lady will say something about her husband's tweet, which many dubbed cyber bullying, as just a week ago Melania defended her son Barron in a similarly controversial situation.

Barron's name was mentioned during a witness testimonial during impeachment hearings, which enraged the FLOTUS, who insists on giving her son's privacy he deserves, especially since he's a minor.

People online believe that the same logic should apply to Greta, but Melania's statement regarding her husband's tweet shows that she thinks otherwise.

CNN reporter Kate Bennett shared the statement and broke it down for her followers.
