The fact that President Trump even thought about purchasing Greenland for America has liberals climbing up the walls.
On Monday, 45 addressed the rumors.
President Trump on reports he discussed the US potentially buying Greenland: Strategically its interesting and wed be interested, but well talk to them a little bit. Its not number one on the burner, I can tell you that.

The left can’t restrain themselves. They have to take the bait every time. After all the times they have been trolled by Trump, I’m starting to wonder if they have the memory of a goldfish.
It’s got 243k likes. Which is a lot with twitter algorithms holding them back.
America needs Greenland as global warming insurance...
Put astroturf in the picture, and find out if the lefties really believe in “green”. ;-)
We can pay whatever price they want—in 100 year treasury bonds. ;-)
Look at how many Freepers lost their minds in the last two weeks over the thought that President Trump was going to cave on the Second Amendment.
After how many examples that he doesn’t do stuff like that?
It’s not just Leftists.
Greenland ... what a godforsaken place, not a single tree in sight.
You're giving them way too much credit.
They are beyond humor challenged, too. IOW, they have NONE.
untapped natural resources in Greenland.
“...Im starting to wonder if they have the memory of a goldfish....”
Well, you’re close....real close. They have the memory of a guppy.
Goldfish are smart enough to know where they’re fed.
But will the left believe him?
Buy it. Send all leftists, journalists, and m*slims there. Give it independence from the USA.
Wiki says that the greenland population is mainly Inuit from Alaska
Greenland is populated by Americans
While we bought the U.S. Virgin Islands from Denmark, Alaska from Russia, and the Louisiana Territory from France, I don’t think we buy places with people any longer.
If Denmark and Greenland and we are all o.k. with it, Greenland can shift from Denmark to the U.S. I think that means we, not Denmark, becomes responsible for the subsidies Denmark is currently paying Greenland, and we (directly) assume responsibility for the defense of Greenland.
But, our immediate interest is that Denmark and the rest of Europe meet their NATO obligation of 2 percent of GDP. If they did that, we would have no problem backing them up, whether defending Latvia or Greenland or any other part of the NATO alliance. Together, we’d tower over any possible adversary.
But, as it is, there is no “together” to NATO. It’s us subsidizing a bunch of spoiled welfare recipient countries. When the border moved east, the original NATO countries concluded they were not at risk of Russia and could cut back on their defense. When Russia got back on its own feet, and then started to play the role of trouble-maker in that part of the world, the Europeans thought that was the U.S.’s problem, not theirs or our collective problem.
I am beginning to wonder what we’re doing in NATO. Since the NATO countries offer us nothing, and it’s a one-way alliance, we should consider a new alliance of democratic countries that actually join in mutual defense. Maybe Denmark, having Greenland to defend, will think of leaving NATO (and the EU) and joining with this new alliance.
Trump should say he’ll only buy it if they first rename it to Trumpland. Liberals would go bonkers.
He’ll rename it to Trumpland first. :-P
He can so troll them for months on this.
