Brazil's Bolsonaro calls activist Greta Thunberg a

Teenage local climate activist Greta Thunberg became now labelled a "brat" by Brazil's strongman leader Jair Bolsonaro in a row over deaths within the Amazon.

The comment of Bolsonaro, who has been observed to have seemingly admired the USA government, follows Trump's sarcastic comment towards Thunberg.

In September, after Thunberg gave a fiery, impassioned speech to United Nations leaders, President Donald Trump mockingly tweeted: "She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future".

Bolsonaro took arrangement at Thunberg, 16, after she voiced advise over Brazil's deforestation of the Amazon and the killings of indigenous of us within the rainforest.

Questioned about the Guajajara murders, Mr Bolsonaro told reporters "any death is worrying" and that his government will enforce the laws against illegal deforestation. "So nice to see!"

BRAZIL'S President Jair Bolsonaro yesterday called Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg a "brat" after the activist condemned the weekend killing of two indigenous people in the Amazon rainforest. Deforestation of its Amazon rose almost 30% in the 12 months through July.

"It's impressive that the press is giving space to a brat like that, ' he added, using the Portuguese word word 'pirralha".

Since then, she has traveled around the country advocating for climate change awareness and action.

The 16-year-old is now in Madrid along with thousands of other young people to demand world leaders take action against climate change. "Over and over again. It is shameful that the world remains silent about this", the 16-year-old wrote.

Poirier said he thinks the deforestation and fires "can be attributed entirely to the environmental mismanagement policies and rhetoric of Bolsonaro", since the Brazilian president has promised to open up large swaths of the rainforest to development and pave a highway through the Amazon.

Marina Silva, a center-left politician and former environment minister under Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva's administration, said Bolsonaro's move was "incoherent" with his leadership position. "He should fight the criminals that murdered the indigenous instead of fighting Greta".
