Amid all of the political fury that has taken place in America over the course of the last few weeks, a strange story emerged that has the whole world talking.
President Trump has been fending off a slew of attacks by the radical left this week, which is nothing new, but this latest controversy has nothing to do with “the squad”, impeachment, Robert Mueller, or the constant accusations of “racism” that have bombarded him. Instead, Trump is being lambasted by Danish politicos after it was revealed that the Commander in Chief has repeatedly suggested that the US explore the possibility of purchasing Greenland from Denmark.
Danish politicians on Friday poured scorn on the notion of selling Greenland to the United States following reports that President Donald Trump had privately discussed the idea of buying the world’s biggest island with his advisers.
“It has to be an April Fool’s joke. Totally out of season,” former prime minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen said on Twitter.
The Danish legislators pulled no punches in their criticisms of the American President.
“If he is truly contemplating this, then this is final proof, that he has gone mad,” foreign affairs spokesman for the Danish People’s Party, Soren Espersen, told broadcaster DR.
“The thought of Denmark selling 50,000 citizens to the United States is completely ridiculous,” he said.
“I am sure a majority in Greenland believes it is better to have a relation to Denmark than the United States, in the long term,” Aaja Chemnitz Larsen, Danish MP from Greenland’s second-largest party Inuit Ataqatigiit (IA), told Reuters.
“My immediate thought is ‘No, thank you’,” she said.
The idea is not without precedent, however.
The United States has considered the strategic acquisition in the past, most notably in 1946.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
