President Trump Expresses Interest in Buying Greenland
President Donald Trump has reportedly expressed interest multiple times in a new and unusual real estate purchase.
The president’s interest in buying Greenland was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.
According to the journal, he has raised the issue during meetings and dinners with ‘varying degrees of seriousness’ questioning aides about the possible advantages of purchasing the autonomous Danish territory.
It is home to the U.S. military’s northern-most base, 750 miles above the Arctic Circle.
In a statement issued Friday the government said, “Greenland is not for sale” but that the country “is open to cooperation between equal countries.”
