He's an embarrassing numbskull.

But in this instance.......I have a feeling he just didn't feel like going.

Any excuse is good. And the Danish PM's comments is convenient, and as good as any.

Trump is throwing flash bombs still. He does not want people to focus on the real issues plaguing him. People fall for his B.S. and take the bait, including his biggest supporters. He's a big baby who knows he's in deep doo-doo on other matters and is determined to get people to focus on the latest shiny object.

Don't allow the national disgrace konman to distract from the bigger issues. Don't take his bait. Stay focused on the things he does not want you to focus on.

Yeah going downhill since the 1960s thanks to liberals and open borders.

The U.S. has been dead since 1913 thanks to Wilson and that Congress (Federal Reserve, WWI, and 16th Amendment).

It's 7:40 AM in Copenhagen. Someone is not having a good morning. (Insert joke about a Danish with breakfast here.)

Not saying it was wonderful. But in terms of power and respect, the post-war decade was where the US established her hegemony. Since the fall of the Iron Curtain, the US has held on to the role of the world's remaining superpower because no one really wanted the disruption that would come with a shift of power. Going along with the status quo was convenient for everyone. But I suspect future historians have their watershed moment.

Thule Air Force base is one of the most important strategic air bases the US military has. Greenland gets big bucks from leasing the area to the USAF.

Thule Air Base is home to the 21st Space Wing's global network of sensors providing missile warning, space surveillance and space control to North American Aerospace Defense Command and Air Force Space Command.

He is more stupid/senile/out of touch than I thought and I didn't think much of him. I thought it was a joke. Before you know Putin will be lecturing Trump on annexation techniques.
