Danish Prime Minister Calls Trump's Idea of Buying Greenland 'Absurd'

Danish Prime Minister Calls Trump's Idea of Buying Greenland 'Absurd'.

Donald Trump has recently expressed interest in buying Greenland, a massive semiautonomous Danish territory in the Arctic.

.

We are good allies with Denmark, we protect Denmark like we protect large portions of the world, and the concept came up…Strategically it's interesting, and we would be interested, but we will talk with them a little bit, Donald Trump, via CNN.

According to Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen however, the idea is an "absurd discussion.".

Greenland is not for sale.

Greenland is not Danish.

Greenland belongs to Greenland… I strongly hope that this is not meant seriously, Mette Frederiksen, to 'Sermitsiaq'.

Frederiksen went on to confirm that Greenland's Prime Minister, Kim Kielsen, is aware of and against Trump's attempt to purchase the territory.

.

Kim Kielsen has of course made it clear that Greenland is not for sale.

That's where the conversation ends.
