Trump just rudely postponed his meeting with Danish leader because she won’t sell him Greenland

Perhaps scrambling for a way to take the media’s attention off this afternoon’s deplorable anti-Semitic comments, President Trump appeared to spark a feud with the Kingdom of Greenland on Tuesday evening when he abruptly announced he would be postponing his planned meeting with the Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen over her refusal to consider selling the island of Greenland to the United States.

Last Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported that he has reportedly talked about the idea of buying the Danish-owned island with “varying degrees of seriousness.”

Denmark was quick to put a stop to that speculation, “Greenland is not for sale,” Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen told the newspaper Sermitsiag last Sunday. “Greenland is not Danish. Greenland belongs to Greenland. I strongly hope that this is not meant seriously.”

It appears that the president was either very serious about tickling his ego and buying a country or at least milking the controversy in order to get the public to stop talking about his anti-Semitic remarks.

But to see him abusing an international relationship with a close ally for such astonishingly petty purposes is beyond disgraceful for the leader of the free world.
