    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.

Europeans are oh so pretentious. That unofficial offer to buy Greenland was a swipe at the Russians and Chinese who are aggressively seeking a foothold in North America. Greenland is seen as a military approach to North America. Now a foreign military presence in North America would not be tolerated by the USA. The consequences would be horrific.

A 13th-century Norwegian chronicler thought long and hard about why anyone would want to settle Greenland – the subject of a recent dispute between Donald Trump and Denmark. The place was chilly, seal meat appeared on menus with disheartening frequency, and far too many people developed irksome, often deadly, infections of the middle ear. “Desire for fame” was one possible reason to make the trip, while simple curiosity could not be discounted as a potential motive. For the most part, though, it probably came down to the fact that people would always “look for wealth wherever they hear they can get it”. A fireside in medieval Norway’s Bergen or the Oval Office in 2019: plus ça change. Norse settlers, who began to arrive from the late 10th century, were often disappointed by the economic dividends. Thank goodness, then, that a more precious commodity – the Word of God – was also being cultivated: “All the people are Christian and they have churches and priests.” As many as 20 churches, in fact, tending to a population that hovered around the 1,400 mark throughout that era. Greenland even got its own bishop, based at Gardar, in the 1120s. Then it all went wrong. A very posh wedding took place at the church-farm settlement at Hvalsey in 1408 (well-preserved ruins of the church survive) but that’s pretty much the last we hear of Greenland’s Catholicism for half a millennium or so. Very likely a drop in temperature made the living conditions intolerable, or run-ins with local Inuits came to a head, or homesickness simply took its toll. In any event, by the 1720s Lutheran missionaries encountered nothing but ruins and buried skeletons at the old settlement sites. Happily, Catholicism did make a minor comeback in the 20th century and, at 5pm on any given Sunday, you can attend Mass at the little church of Christ the King in Nuuk. You won’t struggle to find a seat. Greenland has a population just shy of 60,000: this includes only 50 or so Catholics. It’s all a long way from the 30ft-wide nave of the old church at Gardar, medieval seat of the titular bishopric.

Greenland is the military approach to North America and the comment was really aimed at Russia and China who are aggressively seeking a foothold in Greenland.

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?

And by the way: the first people in Greenland were Inuits, then came vikings some were christians. Catholics are welcome in Scandinavia, they are just rare, so what is menat by: " put the Catholic people in a small piece of land. " ? they are free people like our Jews

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!
