White House adviser Ivanka Trump on Wednesday praised environmental activist Greta Thunberg for elevating awareness of climate change.
Her remarks came after Thunberg lambasted business and political elites gathered at WEF Tuesday for not doing enough to tackle climate change, warning that time was running out.
Thunberg made international headlines after a fiery speech at the United Nations in September where she scolded business and political elites on climate change.
Chill Greta, Chill!” Trump tweeted.
Speaking to reporters from Davos on Tuesday, Trump said he didn’t “really know anything about her” and described her as “very angry.”
