All of the handwringing about Trump's offer is a crackup. It's the third time (at least) that an offer has been tendered.
Did Harry Truman throw a hissy fit when Denmark turned him down?

He is simply do something stupid by creating a story to divert attention away from the economy and current issues. This has been his strategy for the past 3 years.

This from the citizen of a country that started a trade war with China but is now watching as China attempts to cozy up to Greenland by expressing willingness to provide funding to build THREE airports.https://www.forbes.com/sites/timtrea.../#2f9235e53f3c

This from a country trying to develop futuristic weapons but doesn't have the necessary reserves of rare earth elements, while Greenland is awash in them.https://www.wsj.com/articles/china-t...ge-11559304000

Turn off Fox and do some simple reading of world news other then your own nonsense fed to you by bought and paid for shills . Being ill informed isn't just a sin, it's borderline criminal when the attendant stupidity can result in countries going at each other's throats.

Finally, this idea is not Trump's to claim as his own ….. it was tried before and failed before. https://www.apnews.com/9d4a8021c3650800fdf6dd5903f68972

The Ninnies of The Left would be just as "outraged" if he had agreed to a futile meeting.

Seriously, has there ever been a bigger idiot or moron as President. Trump is an embarrassment to this nation and a total disgrace to the American people. In other words, a loser in every sense.

I suspect this was the last straw for you. Been supporting him since day 1 but just couldn't take this one.

Yes, the "idiot" is the PM. Anyone who can't monetize such a jewel needs to be pushed aside.

Yeah, why was he going to Denmark anyway? What do they have besides butter and pastries? And to those who say why should the US have Greenland, how about asking how did a tiny country half way around the world came to own the largest island? Isn't that racist, my fellow dems?
