    Just what Greenland needs, Trump to speed up the melting of the ice sheets with his hot air.

    "I'm going to bring clean coal back to Greenland."

    He probably got a spam letter saying it’s for sale and if he wants it, he should send s check to some Nigerian prince.

    I have no doubt that this will not happen. I also don't doubt that Trump really doesn't know what it would take or why Greenland is important to US strategic assets. I also think that Trump is completely ignorant that Greenland gives Denmark a significant interest in the arctic, and thus would never voluntarily part ways with it.

    That being said... hypothetically... if we could make it happen it would be a boon to US strategic interests in the atlantic and arctic.

    After Trump is done with them, they'll just be called the US Islands. :)
