    In that case...20 minutes before the purchase is to be signed Trump would stop it. His reason would be "I didn't get informed as to the issue of the population on that left leaning island. So we will look at other less mentally unstable locations for our unnecessary purchase with money we don't have."

    Logistically I would think this would be extremely difficult to accomplish. Buying RE like Greenland is out of my area of expertise, unlike buying an individual piece of property. Why do I get the feeling that this is more of Mr. President talking out of his backside?

    Absolutely. And people who consider themselves military geniuses based on a single-term enlistment three to five administrations ago should scoff at the analysis of War College and Staff College graduates, predicting “false flags” and imminent war with Denmark in order to seize Greenland by force. Or something brilliant like that.

    The beauty of this story, and what is so trump about it, is that it was never a question of if it was legal, what Greenland wanted, whether Denmark would sell etc...it was trump riffing in the next thing he wanted to accomplish without studies, planning etc.

    Actually there is less of it as the oceans rise for some inexplicable reason totally unrelated to anything man is doing to the environment.

    Alas. It doesn’t exist yet. But I like the way you think.

    Yeah that was the funniest part. Envisioning Trump repeatedly bringing up the idea to his aides is an easy thing to do and makes total sense given it's Trump. It's just the kind of non sequitur you can see him bringing up in meetings that are about other more important things.

    The US came up with the $100 million price tag a long time ago after WWII ended. It would cost much more than that now.

    And why he has also run multiple businesses into the ground, lost tons of money in the process, and filed corporate bankruptcy six times. All that with daddy bailing him out financially until the day he died. So much winning.

    He could just get with his preferred lender, Deutsche Bank, dummy up some fake tax returns, finance it at 120% and then walk on the payments. I'm guessing he's used that strategy before.

    In my head--- UF
    Greenland is very, very socialist; its citizens practice common ownership of both land and government, and provide free medical care for all.

    so us ‘buys’ a socialist country...now what

    Then sue Deutsche Bank when they try to recoup their loan. He's done it before.

    The women in Greenland are absolutely wild. Cabin fever effect I guess. Not that many pretty ones; I think they all left.

    With the skyrocketing debt this administration is racking up the last thing we need to do is spend billions more on this stupid idea. And given this guy trump's foolish investing when it comes to real estate he's the last guy I think I would trust to be making a "smart" purchase.

    IMO, you are confusing 2 issues. Even if buying Greenland IS a good idea, floating the idea of buying Greenland is not. Let me dumb it down a shade for you. Buying a blow job from Meghan Markle is a great idea, bringing up the idea of buying one from her, not so much. This only makes Trump look even stupiderer.

    Both seem too costly.

    Plus there's a lot of science being done in Greenland and it must be stopped at any cost.
