Trump is not the first President to consider this idea. Greenland is a huge territory, about 1/4 the size of the lower 48 (836,000 square miles). It has great strategic value for the USA and enormous quantities of natural resources.

Trump says a lot of goofy stuff so who knows if he is serious. This is the problem with someone who has lost all credibility, even when he has an idea that has some merit, no one trusts him.

The reality is that the Danish government is highly unlikely to sell it at any price.

In every situation, the AGW loons see "global warming" and CO2.

He wants Greenland for the strategic location and natural resources. It has nothing to do with "global warming" and not every issue in the world is about CO2.

OMG, are you serious?
At least watch the videos I posted.

It is a self-governing contstituent part of Kindgom of Denmark. Not completely independent, but has very high authonomy. Actual people - gasp - really live and work there. And I'm sure they would jump to trade Danish healthcare for American, oh yeah.

I can imagine that
Denmark: Hello pals, we sold you to Trump
Greenland: WTF?
Denmark: Don't worry, he said he's gonna tear the place down, turn some heat on, build tremendous buildings. You are going to be moved to a fantastic place, yoy'll all ride the AirForceOne and Melania will be serving you drinks. And you'll have all you can eat pizzas and hamburgers. And when you get there, you won't be needing bread, you'll eat cakes. And you won't see a doctor.
