Climate change activists reverse troll Donald Trump with 'Make America Greta Again' hats
Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg has amassed quite a few fans since her impassioned speech at the United Nations Climate Summit last Monday. During her landmark speech at the UN, she accused world leaders, including President Donald Trump, of stealing her childhood and her future. In response, Trump appeared to mock her in a tweet saying she "seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future."
The 16-year-old reverse-trolled President Donald Trump by changing her bio to reflect his comments about her, Unilad reports.
During her presence in America, her legion of fans riffed on Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan by carrying many signs during climate protests which said: 'Make America Greta Again.' This trolling has now upped its game, with critics of the president using his own political rhetoric against him in the form of a new range of hats reading, "Make America Greta Again."
After the slogan gained traction on Twitter, Etsy shop owner Johan Hansson has manufactured red caps similar to Trump's "Make America Great Again" merchandise, but with the teenager's name emblazoned in front.
The handmade red baseball caps are currently being sold for $30 (299 Swedish Krona) a pop, with 100% profits to go towards non-profit Greenpeace.
"The little girl with the big heart vs. The big boy with the little brain," Hansson writes in the description. "100% of the profits from this cap goes to Greenpeace and their work to save the planet. Available in two sizes with an elastic stretch band, this hat is a sure winner in comfort! It has an athletic shape with a curved visor."
Thunberg's popularity is gaining momentum across social media, and the custom made hats are guaranteed to be a huge success among anti-Trumpers.
