    A crazy idea is crippling border enforcement, to make US the global welfare office financed with borrowed money - all for Dem vote drive. That's crazy AND wicked

    Some people on this board would support this purchase and the future statehood of Greenland. This support is derived from the logic that the new territory most likely would be populated by New England Democrats thus giving the party two more Senate seats.

    If PT buys Greenland and determines that no wall will be built, but refugees/ illegal immigrants can populate Greenland, learn English and dig holes for Oil for 3 years before citizenship is given, I’m cool with that

    That's ridiculous. With our massive debt no way we could obtain a mortgage.
    We simply can't afford it.

    The idea to buy Greenland is completely on-brand for Donald Trump, who is demonstrating – once again – that he has the intellectual capacity of a child.

    I think President Trump is spot on with this. We buy Greenland, ship all the Democrats, illegals, criminals, hollyweird actors, and MSM TYPES, and they can create their utopian society. I think this idea has great merit.

    Why do we have to go? You’re in the minority and it’s the Republicans that will be completely collapsing as a party here in a short number of years. Maybe y’all can go to Greenland with your little guns and do some self-reflection. While you’re there, maybe y’all can figure out that man-made climate change is quite real.

    This is actually a great idea.

    The only downside I see is that once we Make Greenland Great Again we will need to build a wall to keep all the snow mexicans (re: Canadians) from trying to invade.

    MGGA!

    Oh look. Another prediction that the GOP will be collapsing.

    That means I should prepare for the GOP to assert control in both houses and 38 states.

    I'd suggest a straight up trade offering them Guam and a territory to be named later.

    That's what they said about "Seward's Folly", and Denmark is well aware of that. So it will never happen.

    My Lord! Sad joke this guy. Never ending, total embarrassment to this country. I'm sure he'll say, "Fake News!!" But that would be giving anyone too much credit. Who would conjure up this notion hat anyone could be this asinine?

    Even sadder still, the open disdain for America. The election that sends him home can't come quickly enough.


    ====
    Greenland on Friday dismissed the notion that it might be up for sale after reports that U.S. President Donald Trump had privately discussed with his advisers the idea of buying the world's biggest island.

    "We are open for business, but we're not for sale," Greenland's foreign minister Ane Lone Bagger told Reuters.

    I mean it’s a strange thing for the POTUS to spend time on but if the strategic value of Greenland was worth more than the price, why not purchase it?

    And outrage. The TDS daily triggerings are worth their weight in gold.

    Look how hysterical the OP is. Again. Pure comedy.

    If one were to look at man enhanced global warming as an economic, military and geopolitical opportunity which is what I believe this Administration truly believes rather than the denial they sell to the public, then buying and developing Greenland makes good sense.

    For one thing, Russia and China, Canada, the EU and our country all have a piece of the Arctic pie. But kind of like a patent, if you can't defend it, you don't have one. This would only help our country defend its share of the Arctic and it's resources.

    Because you are the ones that don't think America is a great nation, as is.
    We still love our country, so you guys can just have a clean slate.

    The irony is the value of Greenland is greater as a result of global warming. The same global warming that is a liberal conspiracy.

    Denmark Offers to Buy U.S.

    https://www.newyorker.com/humor/borowitz-report/denmark-offers-to-buy-us

    COPENHAGEN (The Borowitz Report)—After rebuffing Donald J. Trump’s hypothetical proposal to purchase Greenland, the government of Denmark has announced that it would be interested in buying the United States instead.

    “As we have stated, Greenland is not for sale,” a spokesperson for the Danish government said on Friday. “We have noted, however, that during the Trump regime, pretty much everything in the United States, including its government, has most definitely been for sale.”

    “Denmark would be interested in purchasing the United States in its entirety, with the exception of its government,” the spokesperson added.

    A key provision of the purchase offer, the spokesperson said, would be the relocation of Donald Trump to another country “to be determined,” with Russia and North Korea cited as possible destinations.

    If Denmark’s bid for the United States is accepted, the Scandinavian nation has ambitious plans for its new acquisition. “We believe that by giving the U.S. an educational system and national health care, it could be transformed from a vast land mass into a great nation,” the spokesperson said.

    Next we go for Iceland and then Labrador
