WASHINGTON — After teen climate activist Greta Thunberg delivered an emotional speech to world leaders at the United Nations in New York City on Monday, news cameras captured her staring at President Donald Trump when he arrived in the same lobby she was in.
The stare at the UN comes days after millions of people around the world took part in Friday’s climate strike that Thunberg helped organize.
“Around the world today about 4 million people have been striking,” Thunberg said of the protests. “This is the biggest climate strike ever in history and we all should be so proud of ourselves because we have done this together.”
The video of the 16-year-old Swede staring directly at Trump went viral on Monday, with social media users making the interaction into a GIF.
