US President Donald Trump canceled his trip to Denmark because of Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s refusal to sell Greenland to the United States. Speaking in a tweet Tuesday, August 20, the president praised Denmark, and commented about the prime minister’s remarks that she had no interest in discussing the sale of Greenland to the United States.
The Wall Street Journal quoted sources within the White House saying that the US president was interested in buying Greenland. It is the largest island in the world, the autonomous territory of Denmark. Mr. Trump, who was in the construction business before the presidency, is looking very seriously at the purchase.
