US buying Greenland: Trump considers the idea but it’s not a priority

US buying Greenland: Trump considers the idea but it’s not a priority


Greenland, I don’t know,
it got released some how. It’s just something we
talked about. Denmark essentially owns it. We’re very good allies with
Denmark, we protect Denmark, like we protect large
portions of the world, so the concept came up
and I said certainly I’d be, strategically it’s interesting
and we’d be interested but we’ll talk to them
a little bit. It’s not number one on
the burner, I can tell you that. Essentially it’s a large real
estate deal. A lot of things could be done. It’s hurting Denmark very
badly because they’re losing almost $700 million a year
carrying it, so they carry it at a great loss and strategically
for the United States it would be nice and we’re
a big ally of Denmark and we help Denmark and
we protect Denmark and we will. In fact, I’m supposed
to stop, I’m thinking about going there, I’m not necessarily
definitely going there but I’m maybe going. We’re going to Poland and
then maybe going to Denmark. Not for this reason at all
but we’re looking at it. It’s not number one on
the burner.

  1. Trump confirms he is considering attempt to buy Greenland ► https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/aug/18/trump-considering-buying-greenland

  2. The Twittler is a broke POS, who will pay for it, us tax payers? its not even for sale goober smack!

  3. We all know its number 1 on the burner. PLEASE trump go buy it! It’ll be a great purchase like the Louisiana purchase or alaska

  4. Can we do that? It's not like when we purchased Alaska or the Louisiana Territory. Isn't Greenland a sovereign country? Greenland joined the EU on its own and then seceded from the EU on its own. Am I wrong?

  5. This is ridiculous. Greenland isn't for sale. But I could see t rump bankrupting the States in some hair brained scam to buy it. Maybe he could start another pyramid scheme to pay for it?!

  6. When you buy another country does that mean the people are included in the deal, or do they have like 30 days to GTFO?

  7. hahahahahahahahaha. Seriously! This is all the Guardian and the left has to throw at president Trump right now? This is so stupid. Lol

  8. I suggest that the US TaxPayer buys the island of Alcatraz. Locks Trump in there ALONE and gives him a Draft Dodger's Swimsuit with which to escape.

  9. Everytime he speaks, I think "he can't possibly say anything stupider than this" and then he does. I'm not at all eager to find out how he's gonna top this one. If he took a vow of silence (including written, digital, and pantomime) for the rest of his term and kept it, that would be worth throwing him a Nobel peace prize. Him talking would more harm to the country than having a totally silent "leader" until the next inauguration.

  10. It’s hilarious!!! It’s not for sale. Bedside how would a country going trillions in debt each month get a loan to further in debt??? Epic TRUMP SPIN MACHINE!!!

  11. We might need to import ice from Greenland if we start running out due to global warming. There's also a lot of rare earth up there China is interested in too.

  12. Trump is out of control, his demagogery and disgusting greed and corruption can no longer be tolerated by the position of tbe presidency. What sorry if pathetic country is america who can't get rid of a president who is clearly not for for office and severely abusing the position of the presidency. In every other civilised western nation someone like Trump would be removed from office for far fewer violations than even trump is comitting

  13. Let's be honest he needs to be in the history books if this avoids war its fine unfortunately we know the real reason !
    Oil

  14. MOST OF ICELAND IS COVERED IN ICE!! IT DOESN'T TAKE 700 MILLION TO TAKE CARE OF 570 THOUSAND SELF SUFFICIENT PEOPLE!! TRUMP IS A LIAR!! TRUMP ALREADY ASKED DENMARK ABOUT THE PURCHASE OF ICELAND AND THEY LAUGHED IN HIS FACE,,. AND MADE A VIDEO ABOUT IT!! BUT IN CLASSIC TRUMP FASHION,. HE'S TRYING TO PLAY DOWN ANOTHER FAILURE,. WITH GAMBLERS TALK,. HOPING THAT HE CAN CARRY AS MANY TWO PARTY PUPPETS DOWN ANOTHER TRAIL OF LIES!!

  15. If it's true were is going to get the money from USA is still in dept and the promise of the wall and is he a prime minister of USA or a business man what happens when he buys Greenland is he going to move it to USA

  16. Trump is using this both as a distraction and to make America appear in better financial shape than it actually is. The US, under Trump, has more than doubled it's national debt .. in just 2 years. Doubled it's national debt!! Let that sink in. Republicans are constantly telling Americans how we can't afford to take care of our own. How we can't afford to give students debt relief.. how we can't afford to see to it our people have health coverage. Of course we can't afford to address our decayed infrastructure either because.. yup, there is no money for it. But Trump now claims we can afford to buy Greenland. Seriously, the absurdity of Trumps madness only looms larger when you stop to think about how his mind works.

  17. Geezuz, they're not even trying to cover for his dementia!
    This nitwit needs to be removed NOW! ITMFA!!! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP!

  18. Geezuz, they're not even trying to cover for his dementia!
    This nitwit needs to be removed NOW! ITMFA!!! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP!

  19. it makes sense after all, late Jeff had his own island, so don't you think the Donald needs a big fat island too?

  20. Trump will get around to buying Greenland when he's finished overthrowing Venezuela's government. Greenland is right above healthcare and infrastructure in his list of priorities.

  21. He’s a guy that likes owning the store, but doesn’t want to be bothered with actually running it. Meanwhile, the store is failing. Customers are going elsewhere and his own employees are quitting to get better jobs. Only a matter of time before the “ Out of business” sign gets hung on the Statue of liberty. Another failed Trump venture.

  22. European colonialism sort of died after WWII. However England, France, Belgium and the Netherlands were slow to get the message. The French even had to learn it the hard way, that they were no longer welcome in French Indochina and Algeria.

    Welcome to the 21st century! Of course Denmark can't sell Greenland to the USA, because it's no longer a Danish colony. Greenland is an autonomous part of the Danish kingdom. As the Danish Prime Minister rightly stated: "The whole idea is absurd". I second that.

  23. Why buy Greenland? So the inhabitants of Detroit and Baltimore can go over there and make it an ice ghetto? Please mate.

  24. A 'win-win' deal for both USA and Denmark. The US has been strategically using Greenland with the Danes since the 19th century. The US weather stations based in Greenland helped defeat the Germans in WW2 and freed occupied Denmark.

  25. "Its number one on the burner ,I can tell you that" yet it will melt. Trumps not buying it , he is just a puppet.

  26. Maybe Trump could trade California, Washington, Hawaii, and the Northeast states for the unoccupied parts of Greenland. I'm sure that the current residents of Greenland wouldn't want to become part of Trump's America. I'd feel bad about how non whites and poor would be treated by the South and Midwest that are still part of Trump's America. so maybe Trump should allow the urban areas areas to secede. Trump's America could then be the white America that Trump loves and doesn't mind being sacrificial pawns For Trump's agenda.

  27. Not for sale – and both he and the US of A will dearly be regretting should they wake up Holger the Dane!

  28. US would be crazy not to buy it, theres only so much land on Earth! You just don't get opportunities like this. Maybe Denmark should go to market

  29. Doesn't discuss the serious issues that are happening – Today– Greenland's ice sheets melting right at this moment. No, but he wants more and more property to exploit. Doesn't care that the melting ice in Greenland will raise sea levels all over the world -caused by climate change – no, just want to BUY it so he can take their resources once the ice melts and then if that isn't enough maybe build a trump hotel there since they are failing in New York.

  30. Looks like manifest destiny is still kicking. Fun fact a US considered buying Greenland and Iceland in the 19th century
