Former Danish official: Trump’s Greenland bid is ‘insulting’


♪ ♪>>GREENLAND WAS JUST AN IDEA, JUST A THOUGHT BUT WHEN THEY SAY IT WAS ABSURD AND SAID THEY NASTY, VERY SARCASTIC WAY I SAID, WE WILL MAKE IT SOME OTHER TIME. WE WILL GO TO DENMARK. I LOVE DENMARK. I’VE BEEN TO DENMARK. WE WILL DO IT ANOTHER TIME.>>Martha: PRESIDENT TRUMP EXPLAINING WHY HE SCRAPPED HIS UPCOMING TRIP TO DENMARK TO DISCUSS THE POSSIBILITY OF THE SALE OF GREENLAND, THAT DECISION WIDELY PANNED BY THE PEOPLE AND POLITICIANS WHO SPOKE OUT IN DENMARK. WATCH.>>I THINK IT’S A VERY BAD WAY OF TALKING ABOUT A COUNTRY AND ESPECIALLY THE PEOPLE OF GREENLAND. I THINK HE NEEDS TO SHOW SOME MORE RESPECT.>>HE ACTS LIKE A SPOILED CHILD. THE DANISH PUBLIC, CLEAR MESSAGES TO THE AMERICAN WORKERS, PLEASE VOTE FOR ANOTHER PRESIDENT NEXT TIME.>>Martha: MY NEXT GUEST WE DID THIS TODAY, TRUMP ASSUMES THE ANONYMOUS PART OF OUR COUNTRY IS FOR SALE ON THAT INSULTINGLY CANCELS THE VISIT THAT EVERYONE WAS PREPARING FOR. OUR PARTS FOR THE U.S. FOR SALE? ALASKA? PLEASE SHOW SOME MORE RESPECT. THE FORMER MINISTER OF BUSINESS. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. WHAT IS YOUR REACTION TO WHAT THE PRESIDENT’S? HE SAID IT WAS AN IDEA, A SUGGESTION AND HE DIDN’T EXPECT IN HIS WORDS, A NASTY RESPONSE.>>IS UNFORTUNATE THAT THERE ARE SUCH WORDS ON BOTH SIDES. IT WAS A SURPRISE TO US AND DENMARK THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD PUBLICLY RAISE THE IDEA OF BUYING GREENLAND BECAUSE NOBODY IN DENMARK OR GREENLAND HAS EVER INDICATED THAT IT WOULD BE FOR SALE. IT MIGHT’VE BEEN A GOOD IDEA TO CONSULT THE EMBASSY, ANY ONE AND THE FOREIGN MINISTRY IN THE U.S. OR SOMEONE WHO KNOWS ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS BEFORE GOING OUT WITH AN IDEA BECAUSE IT WAS HARD FOR THE PRIME MINISTER TO BLANKLEY SAY NO, THAT IS THE CASE AND IT’S NOT FOR SALE. WE DON’T WANT TO INSULT THE U.S. AND NOTHING PRESIDENT, BUT THE IDEA OF BUYING PART OF DANISH TERRITORY AND THE 50,000 PEOPLE LIVING THERE IS INSULTING BECAUSE IT’S TALKING ABOUT GREENLAND LIKE IT’S SOME KIND OF COMMODITY AND IT’S REAL PEOPLE LIVING THERE. IT’S NOT A COMMODITY, NOT FOR SALE AND IT’S INDICATING WE WOULDN’T CARE ABOUT GREENLAND AND WE DO.>>Martha: AS HE MENTIONED, MIKE POMPEO PUT OUT AN EXPRESSION OF ALLIANCE TO HIS COUNTERPART AND DENMARK TODAY SO WHAT LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE TRYING TO SMOOTH THIS OVER. IT’S INTERESTING THAT 67% OF ALL ADULT GREEN LENDERS SUPPORT A VISION OF GREENLAND AS AN INDEPENDENT STATE AND THEY DO TAKE ABOUT $600 MILLION FROM THE DANISH ECONOMY IN ORDER TO SUPPORT THEMSELVES, OTHER PEOPLE AND DENMARK WHO DISAGREE? ARE PEOPLE SAY, WE DON’T NEED GREENLAND AND THEY WOULD RATHER BE ON THEIR OWN ANYWAY?>>I DON’T THINK YOU WILL FIND ALMOST ANYBODY WHO WANTS TO SELL GREENLAND. IT WOULD HAVE TO BE THERE DECISION. THEY ARE VERY INDEPENDENT. THEY HAVE THEIR OWN CULTURE AND THEIR OWN LANGUAGE. THEY ARE PART OF THE KINGDOM OF DENMARK, BUT THEY HAVE THEIR OWN LOCAL GOVERNMENT AND THEY DECIDE ON THOSE MATTERS LOCALLY. THEY STILL HAVE CHOSEN TO REMAIN PART OF DENMARK BECAUSE THEY THINK THAT IS BEST FOR GREENLAND. THAT’S UP TO THEM.>>Martha: THE PRESIDENT WOULD LIKE DENMARK TO UP THEIR CONTRIBUTION TO NATO SO IT’S A FULL 2% OF YOUR GDP. DO YOU AGREE?>>I AGREE WITH THAT PERSONALLY. I’M A CONSERVATIVE MYSELF. I AGREE THAT THE U.S. SHOULDN’T PAY FOR OUR SECURITY. I THINK ALL NATO MEMBERS NEED TO SPEND MORE AND LIVE UP TO THE 2% TARGET.>>Martha: WE FOUND OUT SOMETHING YOU AGREE ON, EVERYBODY AGREES ON.

  1. This PM is insulting. Denmark should pay their fair share of Nato. Better yet, stop protecting them and let the commies take their motherland and we just take Greenland for free.

  2. You know what is insulting ppl not pulling their weight when they agree to a certain % of spending for their own security …

  3. Why get insulted over Trumps interest in buying Greenland? I am complimented when someone is interested in my property. I believe Denmark/Greenland is over reacting. It’s a shame they have insulted our president over his interest in their beautiful property.

  4. Dear USA, why not buy England instead? We , Europeans are even willing to even give you some extra cash just to take it away ! TY ! Call ME ! 😀

  5. I don't get why people are caught up over whether or not buying Greenland is absurd. Yeah, it's offensive and absurd to think you can just randomly buy land that so many people live in. But Trump being absurd and offensive is nothing new.The absurdity of it is the least concerning thing about this. What's worrisome is that a U.S. president cancelled a diplomatic trip because someone hurt his feelings and told him he couldn't have something. Not surprising, but definitely alarming.

  6. I thought Mexico was paying for the wall. Today Trump tweeted “I hereby order American companies in China to come home “ The man is a 73 year old goofball whose than the 75 year Biden. What the hell. Get somebody younger. Reagan didn’t know what he was doing his last. Why are we electing old geezors

  7. I am danish and I wouldn’t mind selling Greenland.

    The inhabitants (56.000) hate us, as a drug addict hates his pusher (we pay them $700 million a year) They are like immature teenagers, that haven’t moved out, and hate their parents for making decisions on their behalf. They want the money AND independence, and hate Denmark for not providing that utopia !

    Greenland has two permanent seats in the danish parliament and has outsmarted former danish governments, by being the “final vote” in many cases unrelated to Greenland, but enabling them to get better “deals” than what their size (in population) would justify.

    So right now the case is so: Greenland receives subsidies annually ($700 million), is an autonomous region with own parliament since 2009 and can at any moment chose to say “goodbye” to Denmark, and keep all the values in the underground, with no regards to the astronomical amount of money sent to them throughout the years.

    Fortunately (or unfortunately for Greenland) a recent report stated that in order to receive the same surplus as they receive today, it would require 26 full scale mines in full operation to generate that ! That report sort of killed the idea of independence ! But the hate remains….

  8. Please stop being hysteric for every thing, our President think as a business man as he is, not as a politician. When you are going to understand it?

  9. "WE CHOOSE to be an independent country that dont need no Superpower!"☝️☝️☝️

    5 weeks after U.S. trade embargo/sanctions
    🇬🇱💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀🇬🇱

  10. We could discuss, at quite some length, how balls to the wall insane it is that the US President ditched a meticulously planned state visit over an idea so absurd that most people thought it was a joke before eventually realising he was serious

  11. Hmm uh yeah 5 -10 trillion in currency to buy Green land is insulting ? How do they figure ? Why would Denmark want to rebuild their whole country 10 times over with that much money anyway for a land mass like Greenland they've squandered , and are bleeding 700 Million dollars to maintain every year ? Hahahaha Frankly the Danish government is insulting .

    US has the capability to buy Green land easily . US doesnt need to sell their land or have to as US is a financial superpower , Denmark isnt .US has many suitors that would love to become the 51 state of US .For a Danish parliament member to be so naive to the advantages of a US purchase of Greenland just for Military reasons alone is rediculous . For Denmark to compare themselves financially to US Is highly insulting .

  12. Trump: "They said buying Greenland is 'abzurd'…" "ABZURD:"… *"ABZURD"*…

    My thought is that Denmark isn't interested in selling Greenland to a president who doesn't even know how to pronounce fairly common words in his own native language.

  13. What a silly, conceited and infantile little man.
    Good for Denmark that this oaf cancelled his visit. Such a waste of everybodies time even listening to him.

  14. This reminds me of a little child I saw today at the supermarket. The child wanted some candy, he was told no by his mom and then threw a tantrum. Trump wanted to buy Greenland, he was told no, and then he cancelled his visit because he was angry 😂
    But I’m actually quite happy, cause I didn’t even want him here in the first place
    – From a danish citizen

  15. Rasmus Jarlov is a snowflake, easily insulted. He is also a former, who for some reason thinks he is entitled to pull the victim card on behalf of Greenland and Denmark.

  16. Greenland belongs to the people of greenland and the Danes period ,the Danish empire has shrunk so much so far and its causing arguments between my girlfriend in cph and me in the US .The US tried to buy greenland in the past and the answer was no. Plus we already lease land there anyhow .

  17. "$50 billion." – "How dare you? Not for sale, how ABSURD!" – "$200 billion" – "You are insulting us, it is an independent region." – "$500 billion, citizenship and Social Security for all Greenlanders." – "Greenland has sent us a delegation, formally refusing." – (China bids $1.5 trillion) – "The Greenland delegation has discussed with the Danish Parliament but our official position remains that Greenland is not for sale." – (US bids $2.2 trillion over 20 years with $500K for each resident, all to be full US citizens immediately, Greenland to be the 51st US State) – "This is a great day for Denmark, Greenland, and the United States, we look forward to completion of this historic transition, and renewed cooperation moving forward into the 22nd century!"

  18. I am Danish. Good friends tell good friends when their house is on fire.

    PLEASE get Trump out of the WH. In a strayjacket or to Guantanamo for treason. ONLY one laughing atm is PUTIN..for an investment smaller than the engine of a destroyer he has sown massive division in US and in the modern western world. Whatever your polls show u should brace for impact. Putin is going to invest more next time.

  19. America was Cyber attached by Russia in 2016. Russia won the Cyber battle, and installed Trump in the Whitehouse. If Trump wins in 2020, Russia wins the Cyber War. The USA will be history.

  20. The majority of Americans voted for Clinton in 2016. Trump lost the popular vote. In the USA the Electoral College appoints the election looser as President. Trump is the most widely dispised President in US history.

  21. 1. Donald trump thinks that EU is an country and then he thinks denmark is a city and now he thinks Greenland is a part of DENMARK?! and danish and trying to purchase it like how did he even become a president when he is so stupid

  22. Trump seems to want more white people in the US so why doesn't he just go and make an offer they can't refuse for Canada?

  23. Trump is triggering the deep state drug trafficking clowns!! Just wait til you discover what has been going on!!! Leftist lib bird brains are being awakened AGAIN😀😀

  24. Greenland is ours if we want it. The entire population will be gone in twenty years because they're all very old and have no kids.

  25. ASSHOLES PEOPLE! Many Central American countries would LOVE to be bought and become part of America and the freedom it offers

  26. Another insult is that the republicans (nrcc) insults us with a t-shirt portraying USA with Greenland in US flag colors. Perhaps we should not be so good allyes as we are. What about leaving "Thule Air Base".

  27. perhaps because he made it public they will get a small financial bump from it in tourism and investors. So maybe a small thanks is in order

  28. Occupying a country and killing it's culture, like Denmark did, is insulting. Why did Fox interview Hønge, who is a joke in Denmark. Jarlov should just shut up. Give Greenland back to the Greenlanders.
