According to the HuffPost, Mnuchin said Thunberg needed a college degree in economics.

"When we talk about the European Union, one of the challenges is some of these issues are really only a couple of countries, but I think, as you know, because of the European Union we can't negotiate these things on a bilateral basis", he said.

CNN has reached out to Linton about the deleted post and the Treasury Department for comment from Mnuchin.

"Thunberg, who has been outspoken about the lack of progress on climate change, tweeted Thursday that "it doesn't take a college degree in economics" to realize that our remaining 1.5° carbon budget and ongoing fossil fuel subsidies and investments don't add up".

In her speech to the forum, Merkel said that older politicians had to use the "positive manner and constructive impatience of young people", who she said "have a completely different horizon" in terms of time.

Pence stood silently as the prince walked by and patted him on the arm. "Also they shook hands at the end of his remarks". To reiterate her statement , Waldman also posted an image of the two leaders smiling and interacting on Twitter.

'The situation is not being treated like the crisis it is'.

Thunberg has also been a target of President Donald Trump, who has mocked the teen activist on Twitter.

This week, during a press conference at the Davos Economic Forum, Mnuchin jokingly wondered whether the famous 17-year-old eco-activist was "a chief economist" after being asked about Thunberg's call to move away from fossil fuels.

Mr Mnuchin, who met Mr Javid for breakfast on Saturday morning and posted an image of them on Instagram, said the USA was "prepared to dedicate a lot of resources" to securing a trade deal with the United Kingdom this year.

But Mr Mnuchin said the USA believes "any tax that is designed specifically on digital companies is a discriminatory tax". "Let's be clear. We don't need a 'low carbon economy.' We don't need to 'lower emissions.' Our emissions have to stop".

But Thunberg, who was reportedly in attendance during Trump's speech, maintained Tuesday that she has no interest in political tiffs.

At the news conference, Thunberg sought to share the spotlight, deferring to her fellow activists: Vanessa Nakate of Uganda, Loukina Tille of Switzerland, Luisa Neubauer of Germany, and Isabelle Axelsson of Sweden.

Mnuchin attended Yale, where his father also went.

He went on to found the film production company Dune Entertainment, which in addition to helping out in the relaunch of the Mad Max franchise in 2015, has The Lego Movie and Wonder Woman among its credits.
