While speaking at a press conference in Davos on Thursday, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin responded to a question regarding Greta Thunberg’s recommendation to move away from fossil fuels advising the 17-year-old activist to study economics.
“After she goes and studies economics in college, she can come back and explain that to us”, Mnuchin said while taking questions during the conference at the World Economic Forum (WEF) alongside Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

Mnuchin then jokingly wondered: “Is she the chief economist? Who is she? I’m confused”.
His comments come after President Donald Trump lashed out against the “prophets of doom” regarding climate change, saying that eco campaigners were overly pessimistic and should instead concentrate their criticisms on countries that emit more planet-warming greenhouse gas.
