Trump: US considering possibly buying Greenland, 'essentially it's a large real estate deal'
Fox News ^ | Aug. 18, 2019 | Nick Givas

President Trump spoke out Sunday on reports his administration has been looking into buying Greenland.

"Essentially it’s a large real estate deal. A lot of things can be done. It’s hurting Denmark very badly because they're losing almost $700 million a year carrying it," he said. "So, they carry it at 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."

Trump said he may be visiting Greenland in the near future, but claimed the issue was not a top priority for the administration.

President Trump is a businessman, and I am sure he know what he is doing.

This may be a win-win for both the US and Denmark.

Fyi. Greenland is not green.

But it was green about 500 years ago. When the earth was much warmer.

Oh wait a sec...

I believe they recently found some artifacts at a site where ice has dissipated.

God! If only! I realize it’s a strategic piece of real estate, but the natives there are mainly a burden to Denmark, which is why they want to offload it. Do we really need another group of “minorities” for the democraps to use as a cudgel?

It’s likely a racis’ move to corner the market on Italian Ices with all of that White Stuff so readily available on so-called Greenland.

Trump likely wants to rename it Whiteland.

Trump will make Denmark an offer they can’t refuse... quite a coup.

Denmark has said they are not interested in selling.

The island is rich in natural resources; oil, rare earth metals, glacial ice and geothermal energy.

The hawiaans have been demanding home rule for the ancestral natives for some time. The puerto ricans want their own racial state too.

I wonder how welfare dependent the danes there have become.

Well, they aren’t Danes racially, they are like Aleuts in Alaska and from the few documentaries I’ve seen, the youth have a high suicide rate, blamed, of course, on losing their native culture.

He really wants western Canada. All he has to do is call for Quebec independence.

Cool. I think the purchase would be great. The Danes are good neighbors and have superb butter.

Probably a good idea. Denmark doesn’t need the economic burden of Greenland and could use the cash.

I will think it is a good idea ONLY if all govt agencies (except the CDC, Pentagon, Immigration and Customs, and the IRS) in DC are relocated to there...

Well, it could probably serve as a LARGE Alcatraz or even a ‘Devil’s Island’

When I first heard it I thought DJTRUMP was personally going to buy it and figured it was a good idea but kind of a premature action.

I can see the negotiation now: Look your loosing $700M a year on this. Tell you what, we’ll give you 30 year treasury bonds worth what your paying out and you can take this deficit and make it into an asset for you. So $700M in treasuries at 2% and we take it off your hands. Win-win for everyone.

Now if you push me, I’m afraid I’ll have to back off and only give you say....$350M, I mean to be fair no one else is going to want to pick up this losing proposition for you and we will be taking on the burden of managing and fixing the problems there.
