Trump is desperate for a physical legacy to his Presidency -- he needs something like a wall built or Greenland bought to declare himself the best President ever.

He's wasting his energy. His base already thinks he is and the rest of the country will let history decide and won't find either one of those things a legacy setting milestone.

Putin has a semi right now. Wondering how NATO's Article 5 works among member states.

Russia sold Alaska because they needed the money due to wars. France sold the Louisiana Purchase because they needed the money due to wars. Denmark is at peace and said no thanks. End of story.

I think I have a solution.


Trump can just trade the 836K square miles of Greenland for California, Oregon and Washington, which is about 310K square miles, and then he also comes closer to Emperor status without all those pesky liberal voters. Plus the west coast gets their tax rate and health care from Denmark. Heck, he could probably throw VT in there, just to mess with Bernie.

Greenland would make a better 51st state than Puerto Rico.

I never understood what the purpose of Greenland was in the first place.

We already have Alaska.

Well imagine the potential resource wealth of Alaska in an area 150% bigger, control of a huge chunk of the Arctic and about 50K people. That's Greenland.

I think we should just take Greenland as payment for saving most of Europe from Germany in WWII.
