US President Donald Trump again questioned climate change last week. On Twitter, he was rightly pointed out by a teenager. The teenage girl from Jorhat, a small district of Assam, India by the name Astha Sarmah has taken on US President Donald Trump for his tweet mocking the phenomenon of global warming.
Lately, certain parts of the United States have been dealing with a spine chilling cold wave. On the mercury dropping to -2 degree Celsius on November 21 in Washington, Trump had tweeted “Brutal and Extended Cold Blast could shatter ALL RECORDS Whatever happened to Global Warming?”
The 18-year-old Astha Sarmah (Twitter) did not want to let Trump’s tweet pass by and pointed out to the United States President, “I am 54 years younger than you. I just finished high school with average points. But even I can tell you that THE WEATHER IS NOT THE CLIMATE. If you want help to understand that, then I can lend you my encyclopedia when I was in elementary school. It has pictures and stuff.”
Here’s the original tweet:
I am 54 years younger than you. I just finished high school with average marks. But even I can tell you that WEATHER IS NOT CLIMATE. If you want help understanding that, I can lend you my encyclopedia from when I was in 2nd grade. It has pictures and everything.

The tweet of Astha Sarmah was liked, commented and shared worldwide. She received many positive reactions:
“They are people of your age who are going to save us”,
“I am so happy that people like you are our future” or
“See here, the future president”.
On the latter, Astha Sarmah herself had something to say: She lives in India, so she will not be able to become a president of the United States.
The comment received over 22,000+ ‘likes‘ from across the world and Twitter users from the USA appreciating the teenager for her reply to the US President.
The teenager’s tweet was also retweeted 5.1k+ times with many praising Astha Sarmah as “hope of the future”.
Some people even offered her an internship to study the effects of climate change on the Arabian Sea.
