Greenland For Sale

Well why not???

The US previously purchased much of the continental USA from France and Alaska from Russia...

Offer the 50,000 Greenlanders US Citizenship and the right to retain Danish citizenship and put it to a vote!

Whatís the worst that could happen?

Denmark has said that Greenland is not for sale. Why would they want to? It's hardly as though Denmark needs the money!

If that doesn't go though, I can sell him the scrap metal rights to the Eiffel Tower and there is this bridge in Brooklyn.

Is that written in the language they speak in Greenland?

A certain amount of irony given the title being thrown around.

I donít blame Denmark for saying no but itís hardly an example of Trump silliness; it wasnít silly when Pres Truman (I think) offered them $100m. Nor Alaska/Louisiana. It has to be said Denmark has done little to improve prospects of Greenlanders by way of opportunity or investment.

What investments and opportunities would you target?
There are some natural resources but with very big and thick access problems.
Greenland gets half its income from Denmark.

And I think, Canada has the right of first refusal. Could be wrong.

It's just part of a plan by the US to encircle Canada.

And then take it over.

Will never happen - Americans will never be able to get to grips with the metric system and I cant see Canadians giving up kilometers, kilograms and degrees Celsius, etc

500k for each Greenlander and US citizenship .. A trillion dollars for the Danes and they can stay in Nato for free .. A no tariff export deal for 300 years and 10 per cent of everything the Yanks find.
does he want Scotland?

Youíd have to pay us to take Scotland. One group of rednecks in Alabama is enough.

Too bad Norway lost Greenland to Denmark, we would have sold it, for the right price. USA has tried to buy it earlier, for USD 100 million, as mentioned by ShotOne.

And that is exactly why we named it Greenland, to attract gullible idiots. Never underestimate the power of advertising.
And by the way, we named North America "Vinland", or Wineland. You should have kept it.
