Greta Thunberg has taken aim at US President Donald Trump, telling him to ‘chill’ as he calls to ‘stop the vote’ in the US election.

The 17-year-old climate change activist has famously clashed with the 74-year-old president in the past, with Trump taking to his own Twitter account last year to ridicule her Time Magazine cover, writing: “So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!”

Now, Greta has hit back, taking this opportunity to mimic Trump’s tweet back to him as he continues to battle to keep his presidency.

“So ridiculous. Donald must work on his Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Donald, Chill!” Greta replied to Trump’s tweet calling to ‘stop the vote’.

Greta’s fans were quick to commend her on her quick-thinking comeback, with one writing: “This is the most savage burn I have ever seen on Twitter! Brava, Greta!!”

“So awesome that she brought that back. She is why I have hope ultimately for this world,” another person said.

“I didn't know I desperately needed to see Greta Thunberg acting the adult to Trump's childish temper tantrum today but here we are,” another Twitter user wrote.

Greta’s Tweet comes as Trump has alleged fraud, filed lawsuits and called for recounts in the US election, which has yet to be decided two days after polls closed.

On Tuesday, Trump falsely declared victory in a press conference at the White House and accused the Democrats of ‘trying to steal the election’.

The president has also taken to Twitter to make similar claims, with Twitter stamping warning signs on many of his tweets which read: “Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process.”
