So why wasn't Trump talking to the Prime Minister of Greenland or the Queen of Denmark? He's so strange, he tweeted that he is not going to have dinner with the Queen of Denmark because the Prime Minister of Denmark said he can't buy Greenland.

That's like cancelling dinner with Queen Elizabeth because the Prime Minister of Australia said he couldn't buy Canada.

What respect? No offer has been made or accepted so this is just a hypothetical exercise. Nothing said on this board would influence any discussions between nations anyway.

And as this is purely a pie in the sky question, there's nothing substantial tied to any answer.

But since this is just an intellectual exercise, I'd be happy to trade California for Siberia.

And I am sure Trump will have a Trump Tower deal all set up with Putin.

No, let's keep California, it's beautiful. Let's just kick out most "Californians" and repopulate that state with sane people

I don't know the particulars of the cancellation, so I don't know why the dinner was cancelled.

That said, for all I know it could be a negotiation tactic.

I don't have a line to the Whitehouse, and anything I say wouldn't influence them anyway, so why worry about it?

Trump said he cancelled it over Denmarks refusal to discuss selling Greenland. Trump said it. You should know this before discussing the matter or why chime in?
