Greenland’s government responded on Friday to the news President Donald Trump had shown interest in purchasing the island, saying it’s “not for sale.”
The Wall Street Journal reported the previous day that Trump at various meetings and dinners and in passing conversations has asked advisers whether the U.S. could acquire Greenland, the world’s largest island.
Further, the president has “listened with interest when they discuss its abundant resources and geopolitical importance and, according to two of the people, has asked his White House counsel to look into the idea.”
Greenland, with a landmass of approximately 836,000 square miles, is an autonomous territory of Denmark located to the east of Canada, between the Arctic and Atlantic oceans.
#Greenland is rich in valuable resources such as minerals, the purest water and ice, fish stocks, seafood, renewable energy and is a new frontier for adventure tourism. We’re open for business, not for sale❄️???????????????????? learn more about Greenland on: https://t.co/WulOi3beIC
