    President Trump has made a major real estate proposal: he wants to buy Greenland. But the idea has faced significant pushback, and one Danish legislator has gone as far as to call the idea "grotesque." Seth Doane reports.

I wonder if the people of Greenland would rather speak Chinese or American English....

Greenland should be added to the state of Alaska. Not only is Alaska an Inuit name, but each Alaskan gets $2000 from the state each year from their $65 billion energy fund. There are 738,000 Alaskans and only 56,000 Greenlanders. Greenland could be 2 Alaskan boroughs. And Alaska has other Inuit boroughs. With the opening of Anwar the energy fund and each Alaskan's take each year is likely to grow. The median income in Barrow Alaska, an Inuit town, is $80,000 per year.

Trump should first disestablish NATO and then takeover Greenland by force after he consolidates control over Greenland he should then proceed to ethnically cleanse Greenland of all of the Inuit people and all other non-European people living there by killing them all off using chemical weapons and then leaving none but the pure European people to live in Greenland lastly he should repopulate Greenland by offering free US citizenship to anybody and everybody of pure European extraction from both Europe and abroad. Before the takeover of Greenland commences Trump should issue an executive order barring any and all foreign and domestic civilians from ever taking photographs or filming in any and all active war zones in which the US is actively involved in also Trump should issue an executive order barring any and all foreign and domestic news outlets from ever taking photographs or filming in or reporting on any and all active war zones in which the US is actively involved in.

Why are Europeans so myopic in thought word and deed? We bought Alaska from the Russians, Louisiana from France and New Mexico from the Mexicans. It is a very American thing to do historically. President Truman offered to buy Greenland from Denmark just after WWII. But now the Danish leader insult my country. Here is why we Americans are interested in Greenland. It is a military gateway to North America. Both China and Russia are aggressively seeking a toehold in Greenland to threaten my country. President Trump is looking ahead to avoid that certain war in Greenland. You Danes have forgotten that the first people in Greenland were Catholic and then you colonized Greenland and put the Catholic people in a small piece of land. The waters are warming around Greenland and the Russians and Chinese are now interested in going there. President Trump is rightfully trying to avoid war the best way he can but you rude and myopic Europeans have virtually guaranteed war in the near future. How can you be so stupid as to insult my country with your holier than thou attitude?

Crazy is Trump saying this publicly WITHOUT talking to Denmark 1st and expecting an already RICH country who actually cares about climate change with way less debt than US to give up their natural resources for money THEY DONT NEED. Their GDP is higher than ours. This was just arrogance.

As a European who has worked in Greenland this much more complex that the coverage makes it. Firstly, for example i would deeply question Denmark's ownership of Greenland anyway! I can see the big picture of course. But it is far from a real estate opportunity. Best wishes to all from England

As a Dane, I have to say this pisses me off. if Trump wants to buy Greenland ask them not us, they are the owners of their own country, this is like asking England if New Zealand is up for sale. Denmark has said no twice before and the answer it's still no, we do not have the authority to sell Greenland because it belongs to the people living there. Don't get me wrong, I like the USA it's interesting, the Americans are funny and the country has a lot of variety, but Donald Trump... he is not nice. :)

Denmark never started any wars so what are those billions in protection supposed to protect us from? An by that logic you think Denmark is obligated to sell a piece of self governing land with an indiginious population with no interests in beign sold because of what excatly? Denmark have an obligation to protect Greenland from exploitation from forign powers like the US, China and Russia. It is never gonna happen. We would rather take our buisness east than beign bullied by a supposed ally.

President Trump will rename it "Trumpland" and build on it. Joking aside. Nations are setup as Corporations. The idea of Countries are just corporations in name only. Your Birth Certificate is a The Certificate of Incorporation document as a legal person in your name is issued by the State (which is also incorporated). The US Amendment not only gave slaves the rights to be "Free". I refer to that as Arbitrary as Freedom is relative as you as a citizen are not truly free as you are bound to the State. Corporations with the same amendment gain the right to be born and be incorporated. Nations are legally setup as such throughout the world. Nations can be sold or be hostile takeover with or without a shot taken place.

People remarking on a business proposal as grotesque should ask their mother to spank them for a lack of manners? How do Americans know it was not for sale to China but they like America better? To some people wanting praise by fake news media, anything President Trump does is grotesque, cutting regulations, good business deals, he can do nothing that is not grotesque to them? Unbelievable, you should hear the dismay of our elders hearing this nonsense.

As usual, most American reporters fail to see the real scandal. The Inuit people of Greenland have long been suffering the effects of Danish colonialism, and they fought really hard to establish home rule in their own country. And now, the demented POTUS makes a proposal to Copenhagen to sell them off like some kind of commodity? This is Neo-Colonialism at its worst!

Trump is not the first president to consider making an offer to buy Greenland. In 1947 Harry S Truman offered to buy Greenland for 100 million. Also, Denmark spends 600 million a year now, to fund the needs of Greenland. There are 56000 people in Greenland. The people would presumably have dual citizenship. As an aside, the USA bought the Virgin Islands in 1917 from Denmark.
