I'll rank that right up there with him skipping a chance to meet the Governor of Wisconsin and judging the dairy cow competition at the state fair.

Apologies if I insulted any of the 5-6 million inhabitants of Denmark, maybe they should consider joining the US and becoming our 22nd largest state?
Love it. "Never wanted to meet with stupid Denmark anyway, so there. We'll make our own Greenland, and it'll be way cooler, anyway."

Can you come up with a better reason why there are so many people literally defending Trump regarding Greenland?

The Queen of Denmark invited the USA President for a diplomatic visit, and somehow Trump thought it was a private invitation to discuss his personal business opportunities. Very strange.
I don't know what else to make of it, other than it was for his own aspirations.

I think this was an intended personal business purchase that was swept under the Truman umbrella as an afterthought.

He could make money from it. Greenland has some mining resources. This might be very attractive to Trump. However, for the purpose of real estate, I don't think that would be in Trump's favor. Not many people would want to live in Greenland, for some climatic reasons. I do not think for a moment that Trump would be looking out for the country when he thought about buying Greenland. At most, he might want to build an "American Empire". That is just my speculation.

What is of some concern are the amount of people who are cheering Trump on, in terms of trying to make that deal.

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.

The rationale for the Trump defense changes as the situation develops. The defense, however, never ever waivers.
