No point in going if they donít want to discuss business. Donít waste OGPís time.

Really, no other country needs to talk to Trump.

He's an eccentric old lame duck, and everyone knows it.

Big ideas that might impact the sovereignty of other nations are fine as long as they're explored using some form of tactful diplomacy but this moron has no idea of tact much less diplomacy and seems unwilling to learn either tactic.

Well Trump is getting better. The population of Greenland is only 56K. Usually he insults millions. So I suppose this is an improvement.

Don't you realize how you set that argument up? By that measure perhaps we should sell Alabama.
Not that I think it is a good idea but there are strategic reasons for us that do not apply to Denmark.

Glad to see the president trying to cut down a little on excess carbon emissions by not doing that part of his trip. All Paris Accord signers should applaud this move.

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.

you may not like him but America loves Trump! <3


We should buy Greenland and the feds can sell it into private American ownership. The profit could reduce the deficit. The mining alone would reduce our dependency to China in this area.

Can't disagree with your observation about their hypocrisy. Acquiring Greenland would be a no-brainer, huge strategic value, it's been proposed by other Presidents.

What is ridiculous is Trump's absurd approach; first of all making the appeal in public. It's nothing but another diversionary stunt. Much like running for President, this is all about feeding his ego.

Trump is showing the laconic, pretentious global leadership for what it is.... a do nothing provincial oriented group that allows problems to fester. Endless talk is their flight or fight alternative which they hope lulls everyone to sleep. Globally we see nothing but place holder leaders. Vision and action are alien to a continent overseeing a dark ages museum.
The only thing Little Igloo Man is showing is what an idiot he is.
