They are serious. Kudlow confirms that Trump admin "is looking at" buying Greenland

https://thehill.com/homenews/sunday-talk-shows/457852-kudlow-trump-wants-to-take-a-look-at-buying-greenland

White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow confirmed on Sunday that the Trump administration is “looking at” purchasing Greenland following reports of its interest last week.

“Denmark owns Greenland. Denmark is an ally. Greenland is a strategic place. They’ve got a lot of valuable minerals,” Kudlow told guest host Dana Perino on "Fox News Sunday."

“The president, who knows a thing or two about buying real estate, wants to take a look,” he added.

The Wall Street Journal reported last Thursday that President Trump was privately asking aides about the possibility of the U.S. purchasing the Danish territory, which is the largest island in the world and home to some 56,000 people.

21. Greenland should look hard at what happened to Puerto Rico.

It was also a strategic location for the US.

...and all the Sunday shows will talk about it all hour instead of focusing on kids in cages at the border, white supremacist Trumpers shooting the country up, the world fucking melting before our eyes, and the economy starting to go in the can as Trump manipulates Wall Street.

or they could be serious about it. I would give either one 50% odds.

In either case the clown car keeps on rollin'.

At this point he is trolling Greenland.

Oh, and he knows nothing about RE or business, except driving it into bankruptcy.

wanting to get their hands on the resources of Greenland, and most likely feel that with the red Don in office they can make a power grab, or at least feel it out.

29. for someone who thinks "global warming is a Chinese hoax"

the orange thing in the white house thinks that the greenland ice sheet will melt... thereby uncovering untold amounts of mineral wealth for open pit mining operations.

make no mistake, under the ice there are riches.

That's why he wants to "buy it".

Let Business and industry strip all the resources from the island for bargain basement prices with little or no regulation from the EPA or any other government entity. Leaving nothing but a fall back position for the wealthy to escape global warming for as long as possible.
