Trump unveils his own Green New Deal

Recommended Posts

"And whatever happened to America's can-do colonialist spirit? If Trump was really the Big Johnson he thought he was, wouldn't he just send the troops in and take Greenland?"

If they don’t want to sell it I say we should just take it. The socialist Danes can’t stop us

Buying Greenland is one of the better ideas he has had.  The military is beefing the second fleet back up significantly to counter Russian aggression.  We sent a carrier up north last year on a deployment for the first since the 80s.  New Russian class subs spying on European countries from the North.  It would be a great buffer for the continental US having Alaska/Hawaii in the west and Greenland in the East.

It would be interesting to see which way NATO would split when article 5 was invoked. Vlad would surely like that

Trump: US considering possibly buying Greenland, 'essentially it's a large real estate deal'

Quote

President Trump spoke out Sunday on reports his administration has been looking into buying Greenland.

Trump addressed the rumors with reporters outside Marine One after he'd landed in Morristown, N.J., saying Denmark has been losing money by keeping Greenland under its control.

"Essentially it’s a large real estate deal. A lot of things can be done. It’s hurting Denmark very badly because they're losing almost $700 million a year carrying it," he said. "So, they carry it at great loss, and strategically for the United States, it would be nice. And, we're a big ally of Denmark and we help Denmark, and we protect Denmark."

Trump said he may be visiting Greenland in the near future, but claimed the issue was not a top priority for the administration.

I’m thinking about going there. I’m not necessarily, definitely going there, but I may be going. We're going to Poland and then we may be going to Denmark -- not for this reason at all, but we're looking at it," he said. "It’s not number one on the burner."

White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow had confirmed the reports earlier in the day during an interview on "Fox News Sunday" and said it was under consideration.

"It’s an interesting story. It's developing. We're looking at it, we don’t know," Kudlow said. "Years ago, [then-President] Harry Truman wanted to buy Greenland. Denmark owns Greenland, Denmark is an ally."

The Wall Street Journal earlier reported that President Trump was interested in purchasing Greenland and the White House would seek to capitalize on its "abundant resources and geopolitical importance.""Greenland is a strategic place up there, and they've got a lot of valuable minerals," Kudlow added.

"I don't want to predict an outcome. I’m just saying the president, who knows a thing or two about buying real estate, wants to take a look."

This would be a great accomplishment and change his legacy. But, of course, it won’t happen.

I'm not saying it wouldn't be a great accomplishment, it could be, but it definitely probably isn't going to happen, most likely.

The part about Denmark losing $700 million a year on Greenland, he made that up, right?

He's been told to pound sand by the Danish PM and the people of Greenland already, so obviously he's gonna double down on stupid

ETA: And if he cancels his visit to Denmark over this, most Danes will rejoice

It corresponds to the money the state of Denmark give the semiautonomous Greenland to spend per year (probably more like 5-600 million, though). But not sure it's a net net number because of income taxes on people/businesses and other state revenues.
