    lot of valuable ressouces in and around Greenland, but that's common knowledge. Greenland would be so expensive Trump would run out of space on the cheque in seconds.

    When you math out the 2% cash back on any purchase, it's a lot more appealing

    I look forward to a new era of American imperialism and colonialism.

    I'm sure we can afford all these additional expenses on top of our mounting annual deficits and blowing up debt.

    Surely real life is exactly like a game of Civilization and will easily pay for itself in a couple of turns (decades).

    But where are we going to put it? The only room large enough is the living room and it does NOT match the furniture in there.

    Your problem is that you’re more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right.

    First of all, people in Greenland govern their own territory! secondly I think they will have a referendum for independence in 2021

    That and denmark isn't currently in an expensive war they need to sell greenland to pay for.

    What would the hypothetical future value be of the huge amounts of natural resources in Greenland?

    Pay up now Donny, destroy your country.

    Its worse than that. The aides investigating the purchase don't know if Trump is being serious or not. That's what's got me.

    Trump likes to make comments like these, like say certain journalists being enemies of the people and needing to die... but then when someone tortures, dismembers and kills the journalist, he gets to decide later whether he was joking or not.

    Words have consequences, especially those coming from the White House. When the President says something, there should be no question of whether he's joking or not. People *literally* live and die by those 'jokes'.

    Looks like no one is selling besides Greenland has much better standard living than the US, I doubt they want to live by US standards. This is just Trump wanting more white people as US citizens.

    Denmark didn't sell the last time the US wanted to buy Greenland from them, why would they now?

    Well, as someone (I think Breccia) pointed out, those huge amounts of natural resources are themselves largely hypothetical (to say nothing of how to hypothetically extract them from beneath 2km of ice).

    Maybe he watched Game of Thrones and had the bright idea that he could make his wall out of ice.

    Say the US offers a 200 billion dollars. That is roughly 4 million each for every inhabitant in Greenland. They'd be the fucking 1 percent

    Yeah, and for the longest time, until later oil and gold was found, people thought, it was one of the worst deals, the USA could make. It was, when bought, believed, to be just a worthless landmass, having some bears roaming around and nothing else.
