The Greenlander I know says no way do "they" want to join the US, thank you very much.

And we all know, as soon as the deal is done it will be renamed "Trumpland."

BUT... forget about moving the white supremacists there. Let's just make it a condition that all the Trump/Kushner families needs to move there and stay.

This is a bit of a Danish conceit. Of course "they" wouldn't be selling "their citizens."



We wouldn't be buying their citizens.

They'd all be deported.

Because they failed to follow US immigration rules when they came to the country....

Seen on the ‘net.

We convince him to buy New Zealand from Australia. Once that’s done we inform him that Australia doesn’t own New Zealand. Never did.

Hilarity ensues! ThumbsUp

Tsk, tsk. Such bad manners.

quote:
The astonishment in Denmark over President Trump’s apparent desire to buy Greenland turned to bewilderment and anger on Wednesday after the American leader abruptly scrapped a state visit because the Danes have no desire to sell.

The cancellation was a rare snub of Denmark’s head of state, Queen Margrethe II, who had extended the invitation to the president and would have hosted him and the first lady.

News that Mr. Trump is not coming “came as a surprise,” the Royal House’s communications director told the state broadcaster, adding, “That’s all we have to say about that.”

Others, however, had more to say. “Is this some sort of joke?” Helle Thorning-Schmidt, a former prime minister, wrote on Twitter. “Deeply insulting to the people of Greenland and Denmark.”

It was not a joke. A day earlier, Mr. Trump said on Twitter that Denmark was “a very special country with incredible people” but added that he was abandoning plans to visit because of the country’s refusal to sell Greenland, a semiautonomous part of the kingdom of Denmark.


quote:
The idea of buying Greenland, which came to light last week, had been immediately and flatly rejected by leaders in Greenland and Denmark, who found themselves in the odd position at the time of having to publicly state that “Greenland is not for sale.”

On Wednesday, disbelief and condemnation echoed through the political landscape, as it began to sink in that Mr. Trump wasn’t kidding.

“Please stop,” Martin Lidegaard, head of the foreign affairs committee in Parliament, wrote on Twitter, before citing several other areas of discussion that he said should be of interest to both countries: the Arctic, climate change and the Middle East.

“Total chaos,” the former finance minister Kristian Jensen wrote. “This has gone from a great opportunity for a strengthened dialogue between allies to a diplomatic crisis.”

Adding to the already considerable awkwardness, Mr. Trump’s announcement that he was canceling his trip came not long after the American ambassador, Carla Sands, wrote on Twitter that Denmark was excited about the president’s visit.

Denmark is ready for the POTUS @realDonaldTrump visit! Partner, ally, friend

And what is I-1's response to the Danish PM?

He calls her...

wait for it...

what does I-1 call *any* woman who contradicts, talks back, stands up, or in any way impugns his wonderfulness?

She's...

"nasty".


Bet you didn't see that one coming.

A bit of history - Truman and Greenland. Apparently the Danes didn't think much of the idea back then either.

There's some speculation that Tom Cotton from Arkansas planted the idea in his head.

Leading to the phrase, "are you out of your cotton-picking mind?"
