Asked about Thunberg’s call to divest from fossil fuels, Mnuchin told a news briefing: “Is she the chief economist? I’m confused … After she goes and studies economics in college, she can come back and explain that to us.”
Mnuchin’s quip came two days after Trump and Thunberg sparred indirectly at the World Economic Forum in the Swiss ski resort of Davos. After Trump said the U.S. had committed to joining the one trillion tree initiative, Thunberg retorted that fixing the climate crisis was not only about trees
I know I’d trust the economy in Thunberg’s hands than with Mnunchin and his cronies created in the New Gilded Age. At least actually cares whether the planet is still habitable for people in 50 years, when all these assholes will mercifully be dead.
