Trump Is Reportedly
Considering Buying Greenland Greenland is the
world's biggest island.
President Donald Trump has
reportedly asked his White House
counsel to research the possibility
of purchasing it for his legacy.
At a dinner last spring, Trump reportedly
asked the room, "What do you guys think
Do you think [buying
Greenland] would work?" Advisors have instructed the
president about the autonomous
Danish territory's geopolitical
importance and its vast resources.
Danish subsides account
for nearly 60% of the
territory's annual budget.
The U.S. military has almost
unlimited rights at the Thule Air Base,
located in the northern part of the territory.
Under President Harry Truman,
Denmark refused to sell
the territory to the U.S. The Greenland Premier
Kim Kielsen responded
to the rumors.
