2. He wants to move the ice here since it's getting so hot.

What else does Greenland have that drumpf would want or is it something that Russia could use?

4. Oil and Minerals

The melting of the ice makes it much easier to mine uranium and other valuable items, including and especially crude oil. Russia is very much aware of this and has expanded their mining in the previously inaccessible parts of their own sub-polar regions.

From the UK Telegraph:
However, its rich resources make it ideal for mining oil and minerals while its location in the north of the Atlantic Ocean is a highly desirable strategic military position.

14. Actually

Actually, he wants to build golf courses and corner the market on black balls, not realizing Obama has that monopoly and Trump can't do an executive order to change that fact !!!!!!!.......LOL

Also, having been such an astute student in school he probably doesn't know what a mercator projection style map is and thinks Greenland, Iceland, etc are as big as they appear on most maps........He is looking at that vast huge piece of land and in reality it is like what he visions when he looks down at his own lap at his teenie tiny appendage. But, in his mind, "it" appears much larger, just like Greenland does to him......LOL His unusually small hands are a blessing in his case......"anything" he touches with them looks so much bigger in comparison.

21. The real prize for him will be to rename it Trumpland

or Trumpsylvania, or Trumpistan. You know he wants to put his name on it.

3. Only the biggest and best for the pResident!

Including Greenland, the biggest island in the world.

ASIDE: "Some people say Greenland is not in favor of this, I don't know, that's what I heard."

12. From what I understand, the Vikings called it Greenland to trick European explorers into

Going there instead of Iceland which the Vikings saw as far more hospitable and desirable.

15. He thinks he knows where it is

It is between the Yellowland (Atlantic Avenue, Ventor Avenue, and Marvin Gardens) and Darkblueland (Park Place and Boardwalk), and consists of Pacific Avenue, North Carolina Avenue, and Pennsylvania Avenue. Things didn't work out so well for him in Darkblueland, but he thinks he can do better in Greenland.

(just in case)

16. OK, this is a little bit crude, but still funny



This clip was created 10 1/2 years ago, and the parallels between the mangled-apricot hellbeast and Rich Uncle Pennybags are amazing.
