Frederiksen also stated that when she meets Trump in Denmark on September 2, Kim Kielsen, the premier of Greenland, will also be present. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.
Danish politicians echoed their leader's dismissal of the American offer, calling the idea "completely ridiculous" and an "April fool's joke", and even Trump seemed to find the humor in the possibility, tweeting a photoshopped image of a solid gold Trump Tower in the middle of a Greenland village with the tagline "I promise not to do this to Greenland!".

Trump had been invited to visit Denmark by Queen Margrethe II.
On Sunday, Trump confirmed his interest in buying the country, telling reporters that Greenland is hurting Denmark.
