Skip to comments.Danish PM: Trump’s idea of buying Greenland is ‘absurd’
Posted on 08/19/2019 5:01:30 AM PDT by McGruff
Greenland is not for sale and U.S. President Donald Trumps idea of buying the semi-autonomous Danish territory in the Arctic from Denmark is an absurd discussion, Denmarks prime minister said.
Mette Frederiksen, who was visiting the worlds largest island to meet Premier Kim Kielsen, told reporters: Greenland is not Danish. Greenland is Greenlandic. I persistently hope that this is not something that is seriously meant.
Frederiksen said Sunday that the Arctic, with resources that Russia and others could exploit for commercial gain, is becoming increasingly important to the entire world community.

Trump is expected to visit Denmark Sept. 2-3 as part of a trip to Europe.
Trump said Sunday that he is interested in the idea, but its not a priority of his administration.
Strategically its interesting and wed be interested, but well talk to them a little bit. Its not No. 1 on the burner, I can tell you that, the president said.
Trump will have Greenland and a danish with his covfefe, b*tches.
I don’t know why Trump is talking this, because it’s not going to happen with the present government of Denmark...countries just don’t sell off huge land masses these days. That simple.
But, as I noted yesterday, in about 20 years, they will be transitioning to Islamic rule there, based on their demographics and immigration policies. Just prior to the transition, they may want to off-load Greenland, just to get on good terms with the US, so that they’ll have a place to go before full-blown Sharia sets in. That scenario makes sense to me, but who knows who the US president will be then.
The idea of buying Alaska was called worse than absurd. Actually it is a great idea. Keeping Greenland costs Denmark more than $500 million annually. Let the Danes think about what they would do with a huge windfall of the money saved and the money paid for all that ice.
Germany already bought it when Denmark joined the EUSSR back in 1973.
yeah...well he knows what every one else (who cares) knows...Europe, as we know it, is dying...literally. Once the adherents of Mad Mo take over it’s gone! That and I believe he’s really tweaking these people as he wants them to keep believing he’s stupid!
Has Denmark been paying their dues to NATO?
Maybe Denmark needs to put up soke collateral.
In about 20 years the current generation of older native born Americans, pretty much the last generation (that holds to rule-of-law ethics and principles of civility) will also be gone.
That will also give us another couple of groups of entitlement minded, lazy brats out of high school who grew up with no father figure present, and have been sufficiently brainwashed into accepting the New World Order.
I doubt any sane Danes that are left are going to see America as any kind of a refuge. I expect America will clearly be heading into some kind of totalitarian oligarchy headed by the likes of George Soros and Hitlery Klinton and company.
Greenland is not Danish. Greenland is Greenlandic...
This woman sounds brilliant. /s
Trump DID mention how we protect them.
I’m sure him telling them good luck would have even a Minor impact.
He chooses his words more carefully than people think
Truman floated the idea first
...Mr. Kudlow noted that President Harry Truman offered to buy Greenland from Denmark for $100 million in 1946.
...The U.S. purchased the Virgin Islands from Denmark in 1917.
Maybe we trade the feces stained Kalifornia?
Funny how people from England are English, people from Ireland are Irish, people from Scotland are Scottish . . . but people from Greenland are not “Greenish” nor people from Iceland “Iceish”.
(How come people from Denmark are not “Denmarkic”? Never mind the fact that people from Lesbos are not, or maybe no longer, Lesbian but are “Lesvonian”.)
Which means it’s a great idea!
Trump has these Leftists so flustered, they don’t know up from down!
How about a trade then?
Lets see. What could we trade to Denmark for Greenland?
What is Denmark famous for?
And what goes with Danish?
Lets trade them some coffee for Greenland!
I dont know.....,ten or twenty pounds ought to do it.
How many Denmarkers are there anyway?
Cant be more than a couple hundred.
What the heck, throw in a couple of those big silver coffee pots just for good measure.
Now I want some coffee and Danish.
Just think of all the jobs it would generate.
Amazing how this has stirred up attention. It’s not like the Clintons distracting us from something bad.
Hey I looked it up and some Lesbos folks tried in court to have lesbian not mean gay woman anymore. They failed.
But some of them still want Lesbian to mean a person from Lesbos.
YOU were a DIRECT INFLUENCE in my finding out that information.
And it will NEVER be useful to me in my lifetime :)
But it’s a fun (funny) fact.
Denmark has under 6 million population, which puts them around the same size as the Atlanta metro area. The GNP/GDP of the two are also similar.
Another article on the said it costs Denmark around $700 million per year to hold Greenland. Thats a little over $100 per person. For a country the size of the US, the cost would be on the order of $2 per person. Obviously there are some cost advantages that accrue to a larger country.
I haven’t been to a casino in 3 years but this pictures set off winning slot machine sounds in my head!!
And the number 33 coming up in Roulette!!
