It's like they never gave it a thought at all, for their entire lives, and suddenly it's one of the most important things to be done right now.

These people are like marionette puppets, all leaping on cue.
I can tell you why. The global warming (that trump supposedly doesn't believe in) has resulted in significant thawing of Greenland under which massive metal resources are believed to be including, but not limited to, gold and copper. Trump wants to cash in on those resources without regard for the citizens there.

Honestly I believe the TDS afflicted would have supported Hitler over Trump. Afterall, he was a socialist just like them.

This isn't true there are a lot of people on this planet that aren't willing to prostitute the things they value for money.

The Danes laid down thewir lives in Afghanistan as part of a NATO operation led by the US. Sadly the current US Government seems to have forgotten this fact.

Around 2010 Denmark had about 750 troops in the war, one of the highest participation rates for any country based on national population, and Denmark’s casualty rate was exceeded only by Canada and Estonia. So the idea of a movie about Danish troops in Afghanistan is not as incongruous as I originally assumed.

They also have a veru good bakery chain in the UK called Ole & Steen (Lagkagehuset).

I like the Danes, and they also have good beer, butter (Lurpak) and bacon so that four fairly good products starting with b if you include bakeries, so whats not to like about them, and I am sure the people of Greenland with their historic ties to the Danes can continue to run their own affairs without Donald Trump and his obvious plans to exploit any natural resources Greenland has.

He can buy it with his $$$, move there and declare himself Grand Poobah for life!
Denmark must renounce its sovereignty. An ordinary real estate transaction would transfer only ownership (still under Danish law).

Maybe Trump can swap Puerto Rico for Greenland. Get rid of all those Brown US Citizens coming to the US, no questions asked, and voting for Democrats just like "traitor Jews" voting against him.

President Trump's history in real estate has nothing to do with paying Denmark if the deal went through.
Irrelevant argument to the substance of the issue.

What would be germane would be to question if we could afford the purchase, but I guess that isn't as important as bashing the President for his audacity in proposing the deal in the first place.
Greenland s not for sale, and it is questionable whether the Danes own it. Greenland is a sovereign country.

If you want the US to be a literal villain to the world, then by all means go ahead and do that.

Denmark's allies might take exception to that.
