Climate activist Greta Thunberg has been named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year — and Trump supporters are deeply unhappy about it.


Thunberg, whose advocacy for real action on climate change has drawn rebukes from conservative political figures including President Donald Trump and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, was described by Time in its profile as delivering “a simple truth in a fateful moment” in the debate over how to reduce greenhouse emissions and prevent catastrophic environmental damage.

Many Trump supporters, however, were very upset that Thunberg was granted an honor that they believed rightly belonged to their favorite president — and some insinuated she was merely a “puppet” for left-wing financier George Soros.

Check out some reactions below.
