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.

  11. Joe Majors says:

    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.

  17. musicmaster101 says:

    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.

    I feel USA has too much money and power and such power is in the hands of a money hungry businessman who has no regards for the people or mainly the environment.

  38. Mike G. says:

    Slight problem: it's not for sale.

  39. ScorpionXII says:

    Yeah wonderful news for Greenland, they get to have the America's broken health care system, broken gun regulations, no paid leave, no public colleges, stagnant minimum wages, highest drug prices in the world, lackluster renewable energy, and all the other great American accomplishments.

  40. flying fast says:

    That's funny I'm global news today they said that it was absurd that Trump Eaves suggested that and that they would never sell their country to the US and the reason why is once all that ice melts there's Bookoo minerals and Bookoo oil but Greenland will do it the right way they won't destroy anything

  41. flying fast says:

    Anyways Greenland said the circus clown will never own our country bottom line

  42. jappie jappo says:

    China must get it before the US does. Greenland is Asians’ land whites have nothing to do with it. China also should invade Canada then liberate all those Inuit people being tortured and slaughtered by whitest.

  47. Blaster Elforg says:

    Trump learned a new word yesterday "strategic" so he thought he could find some policy he could apply it on, and Greenland just came up. Beyond that he's just old and confused.

  55. Kumori says:

    Can Denmark buy the US instead? Their healthcare system is top notch, and they've been ranked the happiest country in the world multiple years.

  56. The Duuderino says:

    Greenland is a separate country and not available to sell or purchase so there's no chance Trump can buy it.
    He might as well try to buy Canada.

  57. Gregory Powell says:

    So thats it USA is running a world wide protection racket. Organized crime/politics.

  74. Cecilia Moncada says:

    Our defense department is critically dependent on China for a component used in almost every single fighter jet we have. Rare earth metals, specifically magnetic rare earth metals. Greenland is littered with this resource. Yes, Trump has the right idea.

  75. Jasper Morrow says:

    Trump will be re- elected haha

  76. Kaptain Kid says:

    Trump couldn't get Mexico to pay for the wall, so now he wants Mexico to pay for Greenland and then he would ship all the people currently seeking asylum on America's southern border to Greenland . . . . problem solved by Donald Trump (in Trump's mind)

  78. Eric Handley says:

    Next thing you know Trump will discuss buying Africa even though it's a continent made up of 54 countries. Can you imagine him saying.." I have been in discussions with the President of Africa, a very fine man and he's on board. Back home African Americans are very supportive and I've gotten the calls. No President in history has even considered buying the country of Africa, I'm the first and it should have been bought a long time ago". Yeah he's that stupid.

    I don't see why this is such a big controversial issue. I guess people forgot about the Louisanna purchase. And for those who don't remember what that was, The Louisiana Purchase was the acquisition of the territory of Louisiana by the United States from France in 1803.

    A new "Pedophile Island" is needed for western elites by the looks of things.

  91. wellington wonsang says:

    Just so we are all clear on this: There is a facility built by the United States government in the 1960's called Camp Century. in Greenland. The area is also has a major strategic value as does Alaska. This was an option brought about by members of his staff and all he said is that he would consider it. He also said that it was not a priority. As Commander -in-Chief, it would be irresponsible NOT to consider it.

    If Greenland ever came up for sale we should buy it in a heartbeat. What a giant and great coup it would be for this country. The monstrous benefits are too numerous to mention. The land,the oil,the minerals,the strategic importance.
