Trump cancels Denmark visit

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-49416740

Quote:
US President Donald Trump has cancelled a state visit to Denmark after the nation's prime minister said Greenland was not for sale to the US.

The president was scheduled to visit on 2 September, at the invitation of Denmark's Queen Margrethe II.

Then last week Mr Trump suggested the US was interested in buying Greenland, an autonomous Danish territory.
From Trump’s own Twitter account.

@realDonaldTrump

Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s 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!

Re: Trump cancels Denmark visit

So strange. Was he really going to Denmark, on a State Visit on less, to buy Greenland?! Clearly not. So why cancel it because they won't sell you it? Bizarre.

Re: Trump cancels Denmark visit

Rumour is he's upping the offer to 12 quid [$14.56] they'd be fools to turn him down.

No need for him to go. He's found Greenland on Amazon and added it to basket, sorted.

Re: Trump cancels Denmark visit

I tell you what, if Greenland falls through, he could buy the whole of Ireland as a complete package. They love all that St Patrick's Day garbage and it would solve a lot of issues for us. #stable_genius

Re: Trump cancels Denmark visit

Re: Trump cancels Denmark visit

He actually seems to be mad. Postponing a trip to Denmark because they won't sell him Greenland? Promoting someone calling him the King of Israel?

No, all makes sense to me.

Well the Israel thing....Trump is the ultimate narcissist, no else comes near. So if anyone is going to compliment him - in any way whatsoever - he is going lap it up. That’s all doing.

Look everyone, someone thinks i’m Great!

Denmark, well he can’t be arsed. If there was a decent reason to go I.e buying Greenland, he’d go. Otherwise he can’t be arsed. There’s only one queen he cares for and he’s met her twice already.

Not mad, just Trump.

He is the President of the United States though. We're slowly becoming used to it because, as you said, Trump but there is a limit here. This State Visit would have been planned months, maybe even a year, in advance and it's crazy to cancel it because they won't sell you Greenland! Think how crazy that sentence is.

I think we are taking this rather too seriously.

I mean, Trump wants to buy Greenland...
