'Prophetic' Ted Cruz predicted Trump nuking Denmark in 2016 campaign video
Added 08-21-19 07:37:02pm EST - “No one could have predicted in 2016 that US President Donald Trump would be throwing a geopolitical hissy fit over Denmark's refusal to consider his offer to buy Greenland. No one, that is, except? Republican ex-rival Ted Cruz?” - Rt.com

“I don’t know anyone who would be comfortable with someone who behaves this way having his finger on the [nuclear] button. We’re liable to wake up one morning and Donald, if he were president, would’ve nuked Denmark,” Cruz told a crowd during a New Hampshire campaign event in February 2016.
With Trump cancelling a visit to Denmark in a fit of pique after PM Mette Fredriksen refused to discuss his offer to purchase Greenland, a C-SPAN producer with a shockingly good memory dug the Cruz clip out of the archives and posted it on Twitter, where it enjoyed a popularity Cruz never did when he was running for president.
“Ted Cruz really is a prophet,” one user marveled. “It’s easy to forget, but I do occasionally agree with Cruz,” another admitted. Others elaborated on the nuclear futures of Trump’s tantrum: “If I can’t have it, no one can!”
Such a nice big island with such colorful houses, wouldn't it be a shame if something happened to it.
French satirical outlet Le Gorafi posted its own tribute, which translates to “Donald Trump accuses Denmark of possessing weapons of mass destruction.”

Obama has a visit scheduled, so that option might still be something Trump is considering.— Redacted (@DetegoDetectum) August 21, 2019
