Alberta alone has the 3 rd largest proven oil reserves in the world. Smart future play for the USA. With the population of the USA more space is needed.

Careful! According to what I hear, the Danes haven't taken care of Greenland, so now its broken.

Well he had better act quick because it is melting away.

I hope he knows that Greenland is a bunch of ice.

It's also geostrategic: you can check submarines and boats heading for the northwest passage.

I doubt the "Greenlanders" or whatever they call themselves would be very pleased by any of this. During the cold war, the US attempted to build a covert nuclear base under the ice and the Danes and Greenlanders had no idea the big lie the US had committed. So I would say, unless Trump plans to seize Greenland by force, its going to be a big NOPE.

I wonder if Trump actually thinks real hard before opening his pie hole or putting his tiny fingers on his "tweeter"?

So according to you Greenland is a bunch of ice that is melting away... it sounds perfect to me, I'd buy it for the land alone.

Don't hold out for a green salad with your whale meat. There is no agriculture on Greenland.

Why would we want to buy it, and bigger question, why would Greenlanders want the US invading?

Greenland: Not for sale

TRUMP: Ok $100 billion

Greenland: Not for sale

TRUMP: Ok $500 billion

Greenland: Not for sale

TRUMP: Ok $500 billion-trillion

It's really ****ing me off that everyone is so negative about this. I've already mapped out two places that pique my interest.

Qeqertarsuaq and Kangersuatsiaq. Considered briefly Iginniarfik but it didnt have enough whale blubber supplies.

I would just go with the one easiest to pronounce. Forget Trump buying the place.

I am sure that you could get citizenship easily if you can build your own igloo and harpoon a whale.

Actually it's very hard for Americans to get citizenship in European countries. You need to buy your way in. If you're not white you can just 'lose' your passport and they'll pay you to immigrate though.

Greenland also owns 900,000 square kilometers of Ocean floor that is very rich in fishing rights and many resources such as OIL. It also kicks China out of Greenland. China has been making moves to establish itself in the Arctic. First by getting itself on the Arctic Council. It is now building huge icebreakers. China wants in on the very rich Arctic Resource play. The Arctic is the last frontier for resources. They have been allowed to creep and slither into the north under the Rule of Obama. China plays the long game, Trump is doing the same. Do you think it was a smart move of USA buying Alaska? Most Americans thought it stupid at the time. How do you feel today about the USA buying Alaska? Was it a good long term idea? I think you would have to admit it was a good idea. I think long term if Trump can pull it off, it is a good idea. But it might take years.
