Trump: Buying Greenland not ‘absurd’


REPORTER: WHO ARE YOU ACCUSING AMERICAN JEWS BEING LOYAL TO? REPORTER: BECAUSE THEY WOULDN’T TALK ABOUT –>>DENMARK. I LOOK FORWARD TO GOING. I THOUGHT THE PRIME MINISTER’S STATEMENT THAT IT WAS ABSURD, IT WAS AN ABSURD IDEA WAS NASTY. I THOUGHT IT WAS INAPPROPRIATE STATEMENT. ALL SHE HAD TO SAY, NO WE WOULDN’T BE INTERESTED. WE CAN’T TREAT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA THE WAY THEY TREATED US UNDER P PRESIDENT OBAMA. I NOW IT WAS VERY NOT NICE WAY OF SAYING SOMETHING. THEY COULD HAVE TOLD ME NO. THIS WAS DISCUSSED MANY YEARS. HARRY TRUMAN HAD THE IDEA OF GREENLAND. I HAD THE IDEA. OTHER PEOPLE HAD THE IDEA. GOES BACK INTO THE EARLY 1900s, BUT HARRY TRUMAN STRONGLY THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD IDEA. I THINK IT’S A GOOD IDEA BECAUSE DENMARK IS LOSING $700 MILLION A YEAR WITH IT. IT DOESN’T DO THEM ANY GOOD. BUT ALL THEY HAD TO DO IS SAY, NO WE WOULD RATHER NOT DO THAT OR WE WOULD RATHER NOT TALK ABOUT IT. DON’T SAY WHAT AN ABSURD IDEA THAT IS. SHE IS NOT TALKING TO ME. EXCUSE ME. SHE IS NOT TALKING TO ME. SHE IS TALKING TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. YOU DON’T TALK TO THE UNITED UNI YOU DON’T TALK TO THE UNITED UNE YOU DON’T TALK TO THE UNITED UND STATES THAT WAY, AT LEAST UNDER ME. PRESIDENT OBAMA WHEN THEY WOULDN’T LET HIM LAND IN THE PHILIPPINES, TREATED HIM SO BADLY IN SOME PLACES PHILIPPINES IS COMES TO MIND. THAT IS DIFFERENT. THEY CAN TREAT HIM ANY WAY THEY WANT TO, THAT ISP TO HIM.

  1. I'm wondering if Russia proposed to buy California or Alaska since it had a strong presence there back in time. Wouldn't it be insulting?

  2. Bet they were terrified by the idea of losing their universal healthcare system and joining the private trash bin yanks call health insurance ))) I just can't imagine danish people with their top notch social security and high happiness index joining the country that literally drowns in opioids and pain killers and all this mess is sprinkled with mass shootings. it's like proposing normal human to join mental ward )))

  3. Of course it would be "a good idea" to buy Greenland. Buying Europe or Russia would be a great idea as well. But there is no seller!!! The "dealmaker" screwed up big time by talking on Twitter before scanning the situation.

  4. Would totally expect that kind of language from the Iranians not the Dutch. If that's their discussion open, don't expect much attention later.

  5. Nothing new. He cannot stand if somebody critisize him. By the way, with that behaviour Trump never ever will gain respect.
    A man, who defends the Saudi Crown Prince , who has butchered Kashoggi, has no respect towards America. A man, who on a daily basis, insults everyone who opposes him, doesn' t show respect. A man, who lies to the americans day by day, doesn' t respect them. A man, who without shame, tells the americans, that he is guided by God when he makes cruel and mean decisions who hurts so many people, doesn't respect God.

  6. Im Triggered! How Dare They! with There Micro Aggression Against The US, F'N Racist White Denmark! They are Whiter than America! Sic Em Trump! Trump 2020!

  7. Okay, Mr. President, the joke to buy Greenland is drawn out long enough. You can stop now. We had our laughs. Take a bow.

  8. <3 Greenland <3 Denmark. Once America was an inspiration to the world… Trump is laughable. And he is president elect. He got offended and reacted this way? Such a baby

  9. Trump is playing 4D Chess..there is so much behind this..China is buying Africa and South America..Russia wants Greenland too..Denmark is a small country holding riches they can't afford to explore.. And now Trump is giving the Greenlanders something to think about..China or USA..While Denmark can start to think , mayby we should pay our NATO fee..Obama is not around anymore..

  10. Owning Greenland is a GREAT IDEA! Think of it. We'd have a place to immediately ship all the illegal immigrants who want to flood here! Let 'em become 21st century settlers and see what it's like to be pioneers. See if they want to still come here then!

  11. American business people, Trump is President so he must be the best the US can get, but please answer this, do you think this idea and reaction is absurd? If not, can you tell me where I can buy put options on America 😂?

  12. The PM of Greenland is a fool. It is exactly as our President said.
    – It's not even up to Greenland whether they are sold or not. It's up to Denmark.
    – It has been proposed by past U.S. administrations before, so it's not absurd.
    – The U.S. has purchased vast amounts of territory in the past – Louisiana Purchase, Alaska, and part of Florida.
    – Greenland is extremely strategic in terms of geography and resources, so it's not so absurd that the U.S. would want to obtain it as a territory.
    – Greenland is currently a burden on Denmark's economy. They could PAY the U.S. to take it off their hands and end up ahead.
    – U.S. citizenship, investment, jobs, and currency would instantly benefit all Greenlanders.
    – Other countries, such as China, are also very interested for all the same reasons.

    If the PM is smart, she will formally apologize to our President and invite him back to Denmark herself to discuss the feasibility of all the options.

  13. Does Trump have a temper tantrum and run away when his feelings get hurt! Man I am waiting for all the skits and comedic jokes about how whinny Trump managed to get himself in such a stupid predicament (and the Denmark prime minister was talking about Trump's remark and not the people of the US). Thank God I do not live in the USA, I feel for the people who now realize how bad a president he really is. And I also bet the US public cannot wait till Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020 when the US election happens. He's Gone!

  14. Good heavens. Denmark is a good friend. Don't dump on them. To the Danes, and other Scandinavians, the idea is absurd.

  15. Its a insult suggesting that greenland is for sale via Twitter thats an insult
    Trimp is behaving like a moring
    ps to get respect is to earn respect, Respect has to be earned, and the representative of the USA does not earn respect, therefore the USA does not earn respect

  16. It’s not an absurd idea according to Trump sycophants for one reason: Trump said it. Let’s add this to the list, What if Obama Said That?

  17. We don't live in the 19th century when colonial powers bought and sold lands and their people. Buying and selling people was "acceptable" at a time when slavery was a thing, but not today. Today, all former colonial powers accept their guilt on this. It is the 21st century. Please join us into the modern world.

  18. He's out of his mind. The wheels are coming off the Crazy Train.  He's a babbling bobblehead fool. Thinks he's "The Chosen One" now. Wants to buy Greenland. Wants to give himself the Medal of Honor. He's bonkers. NUTS. If you could look into his head all you would find is a putter, a Big Mack, someone else's credit card and a porno tape.

  19. Why not buy Ireland?? You could pull us over to area just above Jamaica. I can guarantee that all of us here would agree to it. Get it done and hurry up, it's lashing down here and we're sick of it.

  20. I think the President lowballed Denmark. Greenland is worth a lot more than $100M. I wonder if Denmark is negotiating with China to develop Greenland? Denmark should not play the US against China. That would be a very bad idea.

  21. Whit eliberals are so used to btch slapping whites to win moral points with the dontrodden they forgot…WE are the ones taht can send a million more Islamd flooding into your nations if you want

  22. Wanting to buy Greenland not entirely absurd.Under the debt the US is in right now it would be insane.The way Trump approached it absolutely stupid.

  23. Greenland's "strategic importance" and trying to buy it are two separate issues. One is debatable and the other is nuts.

  24. Wait, wouldn’t we have to let all those ‘dirty’ Greenlanders in if we bought them? I thought we had a capacity crisis.

    Caravans of Caribou….

  25. The Inuit people of Greenland have long been suffering the effects of Danish colonialism, and they fought really hard to establish home rule in their own country. In fact, the strained relations between Danes and Greenlanders are still about to heal. And in the midst of all this, this disgrace of a POTUS is asking the Danes to sell him their Greenlandish compatriots together with the local wildlife! Thus, he is adding insult to injury …

  26. not a bad idea. I have a better idea, let's buy china and Russia together for $100 ! you are lucky they didn't throw that to your face! united states has nothing to do with it. only you the moron would offer to buy part of their country!

  27. Trump wants to buy Greenland and turn it into Orangeland. Trump is mentally unstable and so if Republican think he represents them, then like Lemings they will follow him over the cliff. Republicans if this is your leader, and the best you can put forward, then what does it say about the rest of you !

  28. It would not be possible to sell Greenland without a constitutional amendment. Which means being approved by the presently elected parliament, then approval by a newly elected parliament, and final approval by a public referendum. The referendum must not only secure a majority among the people voting, but that majority must constitute at least 40% of eligible voters. So not at all easy.

    Denmark is also not in the business of selling Greenland, without asking them first. An attempt to do so, would break all agreements between the two, and be an undemocratic ***** move. So the Greenland homerule would have to agree, and also it’s people. A large minority of Greenlands population have Danish ancestry, and the native population gets massive financial help from Denmark (including free healthcare and education). So again, very difficult. Especially since the US have a history of neglecting their overseas dependencies.

    So yes, absurd is the right word. Which mr Trumps advisers could have told him, if he listened to them.

    However we in Denmark would like to strengthen our arctic presence. So how much would it take to buy Alaska. I mean it is strategically important and full of natural resources.

  29. Why would you spend trillions on military over the course of seven decades, and still not have security over the resources at the foundation (rare earth minerals / gasoline) smh 🤦‍♂️

    Trump,a classic narcissist:Grandiose sense of self-importance. …

    Lives in a fantasy world that supports their delusions of grandeur. …

    Needs constant praise and admiration. …

    Sense of entitlement. …

    Exploits others without guilt or shame. …

    Frequently demeans, intimidates, bullies, or belittles others.

  31. The resources there are worth more in the long run then americas money. Denmark has already said it, greenland is NOT for sale.

  32. As a new Prime Minister, she should have been more' diplomatic'
    in her response and choice of word.
    That's not how to treat a long time ally.

  33. What a giant snowflake lmao
    Poor little manbaby donnie got his feelings hurt by a single word and cancelled his trip to Denmark over it.
    This incompetent piece of garbage's chance of re-election continues to shrink.

  34. It was Never up for sale you idiot!!! Who do think you are to just make offers on a country anyway. ..sadly I think if a country offered to take Hawaii or Alaska off his hands he would take the offer. Pay for that Wall right quick. LOL

  35. Aww the tone … He can dish it but he can not take it. On the one hand Trump lovers point fingers at Sweden laughing at how politically correct they are. But when Denmark deny them ancient Viking land with a clear NO, they run off crying about the tone. make up your mind! Do you like it rough or not Trump lovers!?!

  36. Dumme Dansker! ! Some politicians do not know how to talk to others! Sorry Mr. Presiden,,, 2020 and beyond, with Love from Norway !

  37. Truman tried to buy Denmark when it was still Denmark's 'colonial' territory in the 1940's.
    With the 1953 Danish constitution, Greenland's colonial status ended and the island was incorporated into the Danish realm as an individual identity.
    Trump trying to buy Greenland now is APPLE's to ORANGE's
    Trump asking to buy Greenland, would be the same if Putin tried to buy Ireland. 'Absurd' is an appropriate word.

  38. Denmark may think the question was absurd, but some world leaders wouldn't have even asked. Just ask Ukraine.

  39. STUPID LOL US CAN'T AFFORD TO BUY GREENLAND, WE'RE NOW 1 TRILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT UNDER TRUMP (IN 2 YEARS) BECAUSE OF TRUMP TAX CUTS (IM STILL LAUGHING)

  40. Trump eliminates student loan debt for disabled vets and nobody says anything but they want to blast him about buying greenland. Folks not that it's a surprise but is it more obvious they hate him and only want to make negative stories and ignore the positive things he's doing that should have been done a LONG TIME AGO! Our vets should have been taken care of a LONG TIME AGO. Thank you President Trump!

  41. If Denmark wanted to buy Florida, I'm sure we'd be open to it. Denmark is loosing money by keeping a land with trillions of $ in mineral wealth? Maybe Trump just wants to try to keep that ice from melting and drowning his properties.

  42. Why does America feel so entitled to own the world? The rest of the world cares less about America than America would want to believe. News flash: America, not the greatest country in the world.

  43. Denmark, under the protection of the USA, is too small and weak to be in charge of such a huge strategic area so far from its shores. Get real

  44. Idk. I kinda want us to buy Greenland now. It's like that thing you never knew you wanted until you saw it for sale. Besides, the Leftists should like buying Greenland, because it's green, like the Green New Deal.

  45. Here's an idea: How about discussing INVESTMENTS. COORPORATION. But nooo, sir! He wants to BUY it, nothing else works. Denmark would absolutely be willing to discuss an american presence on Greenland. USA is Denmarks closest ally for crying out loud. He really is an idiot. Wasted opportunity.

  46. Denmark is not calling America or trump absurd. They're calling the idea of buying Greenland absurd. Man, I have no idea how he gets things twisted. Oh I know, because everything has to be about him. Wake up drumf, the universe doesn't revolve around you and your orange slug of a body.

  47. As a Canadian I'm thinking that the next (Democrat) US President may want to buy us. It would instantly make the US the largest country in the world, by land mass, and by a wide margin. We have about 25 million voters and I'm sure that 85% or more would vote Democrat. Dems could control not only the House but the White House and the Senate for decades to come. Of course, we'll want to keep our health care system but sensible federal  gun control laws would be a slam-dunk. Back of the envelope, I figure I'd be owed about $2 million, after tax, from the purchase price. So lets' start a negotiation.

  48. She made the diplomatic gaff of calling the president of the US, absurd. She could have simply said that it is not for sale. He has cancelled due to the statement and not because he couldn't buy. Why is the media being adamant to misinterpret what the president said?

  49. Climate change is opening up oil fields and mineral deposits in Greenland and as Robert Mueller stated in his 2011 speech to the FBI: "Corning resources is the future of international crime." Groups involved are in Asia, Western Africa, the Middle East and Eastern Europe. They may be formerly involved with nation-state governments, security services and military. This will be Trump's role in a criminal international oligarchy. Mercenary and Trump backer, Eric Prince, has close ties with United Arab Emirates, as well as many other countries.

  50. Trump: can we buy Greenland?
    Denmark: We don't own Greenland, so we cannot sell Greenland. Cheers!
    Trump *goes batshit insane
    Guys. Thats how stupid Trump and his supporters are.
