Warren is good in a debate and she brings the experience and knowledge to the table some of the others lack. She also is more on the socialism side, something that the party base wants without being nearly 80 years old. When the field narrows she will destroy Biden. They will have to wake him up though to let him know he lost.

We need to find out when, at what age, trump's dad became senile.

He had Severe Senility. It's in his son's genetic makeup and it's just a matter of time until The Big Decline begins. It could be happening now or in the midst of a second term.

Hey, why not sell Alaska back to the Russkies? We bought it cheap. We can sell it steep. Pretty good deal.

It's a crackup to you because you support Trump.
Greenland cannot be totally independent. Those other nations you cite are also physically small and easy to manage. Greenland is vast and itís governance is going to be a lot more expensive, too expensive for a nation of 56000 people. The arrangement they have with Denmark is about as good as they are going to get.

The US hasn't put Alabama on the market, or did I miss the announcement? (Not that I foresee buyers lining up, mind.)

If he shows up later, he can meet with the PM at the airport or the US embassy. As one Danish politician put it (and a right-wing politician, too):"Why not just cancel? We are so busy here with other things."
If he shows up later, I suggest that the official response should be "Sorry, but we have to wash our hair that day". It used to be the ultimate brush off back in the old days.

Then you'd be able to see Russia from all of Alaska.

So once again Trump shows what a disgraceful man-child he is. I noticed most Trump supporters are avoiding this thread like the plague. And here just a few days ago, Trump supporters were calling this fake news.
