Should Denmark buy USA instead?
The suggestion comes after a diplomatic roller coaster in recent days, which began when Trump expressed interest in buying Greenland, a self-governed island, from the Kingdom of Denmark. Earlier in the week, however, he had called her comments about Greenland "nasty".
U.S. President Trump announced his decision to postpone a visit to Denmark by tweet on Tuesday Aug. 20, 2019, after Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen dismissed the notion of selling Greenland to the U.S.as "an absurd discussion".
Friday night, Trump said Frederiksen was a "wonderful woman".
"We had a great conversation", Trump told reporters as he prepared to leave for the G7 summit in France. "She shouldn't treat the United States that way". The US, Russia, China and others are showing their interests.
A permanent diplomatic presence would allow the USA to "protect essential equities in Greenland while developing deeper relationships with Greenlandic officials and society", the state department letter said.
