According to Yahoo News, "Miss Thunberg was caught on camera glaring at Mr Trump as he walked past her on his way to the summit."
During her speech, Thunberg angrily addressed world leaders who have done little to address climate change, leaving her generation and those who follow with a future more bleak than was necessary.
"You come to us young people for hope - how dare you? You have stolen my dreams, my childhood with your empty words," she said.
