It was unkind to tell Donald Trump that Greenland was for sale. After all, POTUS does not have a firm grasp of America’s history or government. The president did not send his personal attorney to threaten his schools not to release his grades for nothing. This is how Denmark and Greenland took it.
The left-leaning New York Daily News tweeted its Saturday’s front page:
‘Trump wants to buy Greenland — But Denmark says the island is “not for sale.” trib.al/En3DklVA look at Saturday’s front page …’
The newspaper’s bold headline poked fun at Donald Trump for believing that Greenland would ever be for sale. It read:
‘Fjord to Trump: “Drop Dead.”‘
Apparently, the U.S. president was quite serious about purchasing the world’s largest island. The Wall Street Journal reported last week that the American president was checking out the potential purchase.
Formand for @venstredk Lars Rasmussen tweeted:
‘It must be an April Fool’s Day joke … but totally out of sesson!’
Greenland is an autonomous island of Denmark with a population of about 56,000 people, according to BBC. One reason for this is that most of its landmass is covered by ice and the average daily temperature of 3.7 degrees Fahrenheit. The island is rich in minerals and a direct link to the Arctic Circle making it close to Russia. The U.S. has a base, Thule Air Base, located on Greenland as part of the NATO Cold War defense strategy.
