Greta Thunberg has changed her Twitter bio to reflect a recent Trump tweet, throwing subtle but knowing shade at the president.

On Tuesday, Thunberg gave an impassioned speech at the climate summit in New York, in which she said:

You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words - and yet I am one of the lucky ones. People are suffering; people are dying; entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are at the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you?

Trump's response to the 16-year-old's emotional plea was to retweet a video of her giving the speech, saying: "She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!"

In response, Thunberg changed her Twitter bio to read: "A very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future."

Predictably, people are loving her commitment to trolling Trump, who has not yet addressed the latest move in his feud with Thunberg.
