Trump Criticizes Danish Prime Minister for Rejecting Greenland Sale (#GotBitcoin?)
Frederiksen called idea ‘absurd’; president calls her comment ‘nasty’. Trump Criticizes Danish Prime Minister for Rejecting Greenland Sale (#GotBitcoin?)
President Trump on Wednesday criticized Denmark’s prime minister and accused her of “blowing off the U.S.,” a day after he canceled a scheduled trip to Denmark because she rejected possible talks about selling Greenland to the U.S.
Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen had said a potential sale of Greenland was “an absurd discussion,” though she said a closer relationship with the U.S. was welcome.
Speaking to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House, Mr. Trump said the remarks were inappropriate.
“I thought the prime minister’s statement that it was an absurd idea was nasty,” he said. “All she had to do was say ‘No, we wouldn’t be interested.’”
He added: “She’s not talking to me. She’s talking to the United States of America. You don’t talk to the United States that way, at least under me.”
A person close to the White House said the president felt Denmark was trying to embarrass him in its response to his desire to buy Greenland, and that led to his cancellation of the trip.
The Wall Street Journal first reported last week that Mr. Trump had discussed with advisers his desire to buying Greenland, an autonomous Danish territory, and had asked his White House counsel to look into the matter. Mr. Trump on Sunday confirmed the report, but said the issue wasn’t “No. 1 on the burner.”
Following the Journal’s report, politicians in Denmark and Greenland responded with skepticism and scorn. Greenland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs tweeted last week: “We’re open for business, not for sale.”
Other politicians were harsher in their responses. Soren Espersen, foreign-affairs spokesman for the Danish People’s Party, told public broadcaster DR, “If it is true that he works with those thoughts, then it is definitive proof that he has gone crazy.“ Lars Løkke Rasmussen, who served as prime minister of Denmark until June, tweeted that it ”must be an April Fool’s Day joke.” Trump Criticizes Danish Prime,Trump Criticizes Danish Prime
