He is reviled by most Americans. That is the simple truth.

Throughout his term up until now he has never cracked the 50% approval mark, unique among presidents ever. That is a huge danger sign in any analysis.

The supporters of Trump seemingly compose a bubble of confirmation bias.

New Trump vs. Democrats poll has bad news for the president
Trump however will be re elected, not because people love him but because of what voting for the democrats means. When the magnitude of the leftist extremism infecting the Democratic Party sinks in people will vote for Trump our od fear of the socialism being promoted by the left. Most Americans do not want to see an America that looks like Venezuela with transgender bathrooms. Trump may be a bafoon but he will be re elected.

Purchasing Greenland could give Trump a notable footnote in history, for a President that really hasn't accomplished anything significant during his tenure in the White House.


This is why trump is floating the idea of purchasing Greenland, he's desperate for some kind of great accomplishment in his presidency. The trade war gamble has yet to bear any fruit, and the great economy he inherited from Obama is beginning to falter.
Ive got nothing against it if its for sale at a decent price.

What do you care? It's not coming out of YOUR taxes.

Trump is a real estate guy. Why lease when you could buy?

No Dem president has ever been a socialist nor far left anything. The U.S. has elected Dems who are more moderate. In fact extremes from either side are not wanted -- look at history, don't take my word for it. You may *think* a past president is an extremist and you'd be wrong.

The only reason Biden is leading in the polls is because the far left candidates have split their support between 4 or 5 of them, Warren, sanders, Harris and buttigege. When that field narrows ole sleepy Joe is done for. I bet Elizabeth Warren will be your nominee (aka. Pocahontas). Socialist va Trump??? We all know what will happen l.

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.
Who's “we?”

That idea sounds pretty communist, to be honest.

All of the handwringing about Trump's offer is a crackup. It's the third time (at least) that an offer has been tendered.
There are independent countries with populations smaller than Greenland. Liechtenstein, San Marino, Monaco. Who is to say Greenland could not pull it off?

It's a crackup to you because you support Trump.
