Javascript code not executing within app.component.html

In my app.component.html I have delcared this code:

<script type="text/javascript">
  console.log('testing console')
</script>

When I load app.component.html the javascript is not executed as the message ‘testing console’ is not printed to the browser console.

I’m using the Angular version:

Angular CLI: 11.2.0
Node: 14.15.5
OS: darwin x64

Angular: 11.2.0
... animations, cli, common, compiler, compiler-cli, core, forms
... platform-browser, platform-browser-dynamic, router
Ivy Workspace: Yes

Package                         Version

rxjs                            6.6.3
typescript                      4.1.5

I realise executing javascript code within app.component.html could be bad practice. How/can javascript code be executed within an Angular page ?
