Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksens comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time.... ....The Prime Minister was able to save a great deal of expense and effort for both the United States and Denmark by being so direct. I thank her for that and look forward to rescheduling sometime in the future!
Trump tower and casino. I can see it now.
Gah, forgot to finish part II of my post.
Let’s say we set an arbitrary number for statehood. 100,000 is a nice round number, and big enough out of the small numbers of population. (Hell, we can double it to 200M if y’all want!)
How long do you think it would take Greenland to hit those numbers? And then apply for statehood? If they have 56M now, with a huge amount of natural resources (including rare earths!), I’d wager there would be quite a lot of companies moving in to start mining operations, expand the fishing industry, and so on. And each of those jobs generates what, 3x? 7x? in auxiliary jobs: restaurants, hotels, construction, entertainment, etc etc etc. Even if these people don’t become full residents of Greenland, they’re still part of the residing population and will likely be counted towards statehood population.
If we actually purchase Greenland in 2020, I would guess it becomes a State by 2030 at the latest.
