What is there to get about Trump? Why else would a President think about buying a territory from another country, especially when the country involved isn't interested in selling?

I do get you. The unhappier so-called "libs" are, the happier you are. Prove me wrong.

If former President Obama had tried to buy Greenland, I suspect you might have made so many complaints about Obama.

lol. You guys, anything for drama.

I did just read that Seward did one better than Truman. He tried to not only buy Greenland, but also Iceland. Heck, with Thule AFB and God knows what else, Greenland is essentially a military reservation for the US in any case. In any kind of more aggressive conflict the place would be immediately taken over like it was in WWII, it would be interesting to see the current planning on that.
No, by ignoring what makes a country-- the human beings. By having inhumane policies and simply ignoring the population, and treating people as if they are a commodity or pawns.

How do you think Alabama would react if California or New York decided they were interested in buying it? How do you think the people who live in Alabama would react?

Of course it would be like Trump's Greenland assumption--no consideration for Greenlanders or Danes--just assume that anyone can be bought. Alabama residents would learn of this offer from the media.

Think they would care, or would the governor of Alabama have them down to discuss a purchase, while all the residents cheer?

On Twitter. On a whim. Without even telling his own ambassador.

You don't "postpone" an invitation to a state visit, certainly not in that petulant manner. As I may have said already, it's not a voucher. The court is extremely unlikely to extend another invite.

Well at least Trump didn't say we'll do it like the good ol' glorious days and just take Greenland.

Funny bit being, Obama was/is extremely respected in Denmark, US-Denmark relations were never better. The US ambassador was pretty much a celebrity, recognized in the street and filling venues whenever he took part in an event.

Helped that Obama took the job seriously.

That's faint praise indeed.

That may or may not be true, but Obama did not respect America.
