    Trump postpones meeting with Danish PM after refusal to discuss selling Greenland

    Trump postpones meeting with Danish PM after refusal to discuss selling Greenland

    Trump: “Strategically it’s interesting and we’d be interested… Essentially, it’s a large real estate deal, a lot of things could be done.”

    Donald Trump has considered buying Greenland.

    There are all sorts of things we could do with Greenland.

    “Strategically it’s interesting and we’d be interested… Essentially, it’s a large real estate deal, a lot of things could be done.”

    How about a Trump Tower in Greenland after we buy it from Denmark?

    Trump says he wouldn’t do that.

    Despite that promise, Denmark has no interest in selling, so says its Prime Minister who called the idea “absurd.”

    So Trump postponed a scheduled meeting with her in response:

    Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time….

    The Prime Minister was able to save a great deal of expense and effort for both the United States and Denmark by being so direct. I thank her for that and look forward to rescheduling sometime in the future!

    I’m not comfortable with buying Greenland. It’s tough enough knowing Alaska is bigger than Texas, but to be number three would be terrible.

      And that would be up to the American people’s elected representatives to approve or disapprove. They aren’t going to put it on a national ballot. Greenland does have a lot of strategic resources that many aren’t aware of. Resources that we are dependent on nations who are hostile to us for.
      I remember from history learning about “Seward’s Folly” until they found it was rich in gold, oil & other things very useful to the rest of the nation.
      If China is interested in it we should be interested in it. A Chinese “company” has already negotiated a contract for mining rights to the rare earth metals that they control most of the world’s supply of in China. And Afghanistan. After us spending trillions in blood & treasure “saving them & nation building” for nearly 18 years, they repaid us by negotiating a deal with China for the rare earth metals found in Northern Afghanistan. The only thing, so far, worth much of anything there to begin with other than their large poppy fields while China has invested nothing in the security or “liberation” of Afghanistan. That also happened before Trump was elected as well.
      China wants to build airports & ports in Greenland which will, of course, eventually require troops to guard them…just a few hundred miles off our border instead of the other side of the world. The Monroe Doctrine isn’t being enforced very well with both Russia & China in Venezuela & now China in Greenland if they can achieve it.
      With NATO allies like Denmark, Germany, Turkey & some others we may be better off out of NATO.

      When did the American people say they wanted anything? We don’t have referendums in the USA; we elect a president and congress and let them make these decisions for us. If we don’t like their decisions we can vote for someone else next time.

      You should spend a few minutes and study how the American system works.
