President Donald Trump is still boasting that he wants to buy Greenland and compares it to ‘a large real estate deal.’ Is Greenland for sale, you ask?
Let’s ask someone who would know, Denmark’s Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen who went on the record saying:
‘Greenland is not for sale. Greenland is not Danish. Greenland belongs to Greenland. I strongly hope that this is not meant seriously.’
‘It’s an absurd discussion, and Kim Kielsen has, of course, made it clear that Greenland is not for sale. That’s where the conversation ends,’ Frederiksen told the Danish broadcaster DR.
Why this sudden interest in the largest island in the world? Greenland has strategic importance (think, military) and is mineral-rich.
Next, Trump will put in an offer on Canada.
