    Correct and his little hissyfit has now alienated another NATO partner, perhaps that was intention all along. Looks like he is working for Putin!

    Rest assured.There is oil and other minerals involved.
    Trumpet will not leave it there.He will shortly go on the attack and start to belittle the Danish from the top down.
    And he will assure the Greenland people he will be their saviour.

    Why else would they go there ? How important is Denmark geo politically that it warrants a state visit from US ? to go and exchange pleasantries and create a feeding frenzy for the press to cover and interview protester? Be sure that when this state visit was planned by the US the intention was to see if they could get Greenland.

    Remember that the US bought Alaska from the Russians a 100 odd years ago

    Like he said, he saved both Danish and American taxpayers a lots of money seeing there was nothing worth while on the table to discuss.

    I guess you're right meeting with a strategic NATO ally is of no value.

    Oil is a non-event. The USA has oil coming out of its ears and it hasn't even opened any taps yet.

    The next strategic mineral is the fuel of the future. Electrical batteries, or rather the rare and scarce chemicals used to manufacture them.

    Thanks Fluffy, I've said before that the US doesn't need oil as badly anymore.

    So far this week Trump has:
    • Tried to buy Greenland
    • Failed to buy Greenland
    • Decided not to go to Denmark because he couldn't buy Greenland
    • Called Democratic Jews "disloyal"
    • Endorses someone calling him God's second coming and "King of Israel"


    It's only Wednesday.

    He cancelled Denmark because Obama is going 2 weeks after that and the comparisons would be odious. Thatís it, finish.

    also it's interesting to see how the bbc article post one of the two tweets the he tweeted on this matter. very selective in the facts when they are reporting as most journalist are these days.

    Here are the tweets together

    Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksenís comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time....
    .The Prime Minister was able to save a great deal of expense and effort for both the United States and Denmark by being so direct. I thank her for that and look forward to rescheduling sometime in the future!

    Notwithstanding the fact that it was Denmark that INVITED Drumph to visit, so unless they were PLANNING on selling and suddenly got second thoughts........

    If it was ANY OTHER US President than Trump, I'd say it was to cause an irritation and financial costs to the Russians, but with this bloke.... hell, he may even GIVE it to Putin after the cheque clears.
