The Danish Prime Minister has called the whole thing an absurd discussion and said she was disappointed and surprised that Trump had cancelled his visit.
Trump said Danish PM’s comment labelling his idea as absurd was nasty. Greenland is a semi-autonomous territory of the US ally, and the Danish Prime Minister said the US remains one of Denmark’s close allies.
Global warming is making Greenland more accessible to potential oil and mineral resources.
Trump was scheduled to visit Denmark on Sept. 2-3 as part of a European tour. But early Wednesday, he tweeted his decision to indefinitely postpone the trip.
