Environmentalist Greta Thunberg served President Donald Trump on Thursday with what can best be described as the hottest of burns. The 17-year-old Thunberg quoted Trump's widely unpopular advice to the environmentalist after he demanded counting to be stopped. On Thursday, Trump tweeted, "STOP THE COUNT!" over allegations that elections were rigged.

"So ridiculous. Donald must work on his Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Donald, Chill!," said Thunberg while quoting his tweet.

For all those who remember -- and the ones who don't -- Trump mocked the environmentalist after she was named Time magazine's person of the year last year. Calling the honour "so ridiculous", Trump had said, "Chill Greta, chill!" and then proceeded to ask her to work on her anger management problem and go to an old fashioned movie with a friend instead.

As it stands, Thunberg had to wait exactly 11 months to give Donald Trump the perfect clap back.

The tweet has amassed over 1.1 million likes and 295.3k retweets. Twitterati could not hold back their admiration for the teenage activist after the tweet.

Trump and Thunberg have been at loggerheads for a while now as the President continues to famously deny the climate crisis. The duo crossed paths at the United Nations in New York around two months before the original exchange took place on Twitter. Trump was not part of the summit where Thunberg famously told world leaders, "You are failing us."

Recently, the US under the Trump administration exited the Paris climate agreement. Democrat rival Joe Biden has promised to revert on the first day in office if he is elected to the White House.
