Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden had some stern words for Donald Trump after Trump attacked 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg on Twitter.
“What kind of president bullies a teenager?” Biden asks.
Biden would then go on to state that Trump could learn from Greta, who was just named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year after Trump targeted the teen on Twitter.
“What kind of president bullies a teenager? @realDonaldTrump, you could learn a few things from Greta on what it means to be a leader,” Biden tweeted,

Biden’s tweet was a response to a post made on Thursday by Donald Trump in which he told Thunberg she needed to work on anger management and would then go on to tell her to “chill.”
“So ridiculous, Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta.” Trump tweeted.

In response to Trump’s attack, Thunberg updated her Twitter bio to read “teen working on anger management.”
In a since-deleted tweet on Thursday the Trump campaign tweeted an image of Trump’s face photoshopped on to Thunberg’s image on the Time Magazine cover.
Melania Trump was pulled into the fray because of her ‘Be Best’ anti-bullying campaign. Twitter users demanded that she call her husband out for bullying a teenager.
