Trump Addresses Reports About The U.S. Buying Greenland: “Something We Talked About” (VIDEO)

Trump was recently asked about reports that he wants to buy Greenland for the U.S. and he was quite frank about it.

He said it was discussed but wasn’t a priority.

President Trump on Sunday said that buying Greenland isn’t “No. 1 on the burner” but quipped that Denmark may want the US to take the world’s biggest island off its hands to save money.

“Well Greenland, I don’t know, it got released somehow, it’s just something we talked about,” Trump told reporters as he left his Bedminster, NJ, golf resort to return to Washington, referencing a Friday Wall Street Journal article about the president’s flirtation with buying Greenland.

“Denmark, essentially, owns it. We’re very good allies with Denmark, we protect Denmark like we protect large portions of the world. And so the concept came up and I said certainly, strategically it’s interesting. And we’d be interested.”

Trump then suggested that Greenland was “hurting Denmark very badly,” throwing out the figure that it cost the Danish government “$700 million.”
