Trump is told that Greenland is not for sale

Danish politicians have informed US President Donald Trump that Greenland is not for sale. Reacting to a report carried in the Wall Street Journal that alleged that Trump had discussed with his consultants the possibility of the US purchasing the largest island in the world, Danish politicians said the proposal was preposterous and grotesque.

Greenland is part of Danish territory but it is autonomous in its internal decisions while Denmark is in control of defence, security and foreign affairs.

Countries like China, Russia and the US have often expressed their strategic interest in the island because of its mineral resources and its geographic location.

Trump is expected to visit Copenhagen in September.
