Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes into Democracy Now! signed up for a monthly donation of just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the entire year. Please do your part today. Right now, a generous donor will even TRIPLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go three times as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to start a new monthly donation, please don’t delay. We’re counting on your support. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

Trump Attacks 16-Year-Old Swedish Climate Activist Greta Thunberg

HeadlineDec 13, 2019

President Trump has attacked 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, who has just been named Time magazine Person of the Year. She’s the youngest person to ever receive the honor. On Thursday, Trump attacked the teenager on Twitter, tweeting, “Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!” In response to President Trump’s attack, Greta changed her Twitter bio to mock the president of the United States, writing, “A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.” Trump’s Twitter spat with the teenager comes after President Trump did not win Time magazine Person of the Year last year, instead being named runner-up.
