Trump isnt close to the same numbers as Obama at this point in his presidency.

it probably went up more in the 3 years he most likely does have the money

greenland must cost like 2-3 billion dollars, probably less. Trump can afford it and operate the fossil energy industry there

Probably less actually. It was last sold for 100 millions, so...

Greenland was never sold... since we never sold greenland lol... the US wanted to buy in the cold war greenland for 100m but we didnt sell it so. And we wont sell it this time either...

Yeah it wan't sold, byt what I meant is back then (no so long ago), 100M was reasonable offer for greenland
2019-08-17 13:55
100m is nothing :D we pay greenland around 700m dollars a year. And then comes all the other stuff we spend money on bcus of greenland.... since we take care of everything outside of greenland for them and technically everything inside too.

70 years ago, it was worth more like ~50/100M. This is why I put a few billion in my reply, Greenland isn't worth much more as #106 tries to say
2019-08-17 11:27
Oceania Rusuli 
No, 70 years ago the US considered buying it for 100M - which is 1.4bn today. If you take a more realistic angle on it, to purchase so much land when they REALLY really don't want to sell it, in today's land market you can easily inflate that price 1000 times. Greenland would not be sold for less than a trillion, even if they were desperate for money.

Yeah if denmark really don't want to sell it and ask for a huge unreasonable amount, then 1 trillion seems possible, but it would be a scam

Even if they really wanted to sell it, there's at least 12 countries which would buy Greenland for $1 trillion.

I guarantee you no matter what county not 1 country nor 12 has 1 trillion dollors.
2019-08-18 08:22

This is the current year, boy, no country CARES what money they have. I'm saying there would be 12 or more countries willing to take on 1 trillion of debt to buy Greenland. In fact you can safely assume that no country has any money whatsoever. Debt economy is real.
2019-08-18 14:02
Very true, Just thought I would mention that no country has a trillion dollars.
2019-08-18 23:01

Of course, there is oil, uranium etc. But it's for now a big desert land apart from ~50k inhabitants. I never said denmark will sell it, but even if there is resources, I don't see it costing more than a few billion
2019-08-17 13:58
Bro, the danish monarchy has no political power, nor will Denmark go broke any time soon. In modern times, I doubt you could buy 50k ppl plus billions worth of oil and uranium for 3 billion. Either you are delusional or you think that the Danish government is full of shills and american arselickers.

I think 1 trillion dollars is a fair price considering its size and resources. That would make Denmark the wealthiest Nordic country accounting for population.

Speaking strictly economical it's an expense, for some reason nothing much good comes out of Greenland afaik, there's no gold in the ground and if there was anything valuable hiding we would know by now... I say if anything give them full independence if they want or just leave be.. What annoys me is the Trump derangement syndrome at display, US has bought islands from DK before and now some people on their high horse act like it's a clown thing for even suggest it. They are total hypocrites.

There are plenty of natural resources under the ice in Greenland, once the ice melts more in the ice ocean, freight container ships and various trade power will be routed through which will generate billions of dollars for Denmark, eventually making more money than Trump or the US could ever offer, which would benefit Denmark and Greenland mutually. The US bought the US Virgin Islands from Denmark. However very few people lived there and there was no prospect of economical growth from the islands other than tourism. Furthermore the isles were bought during war time where the US used them for naval bases. War time isnt upon us at the moment. Denmark is under no foreign threat, no more than any other western country is. Greenland has a population of more than 50.000 people, all who would forcefully against their will have to trade their passports in for a new passport and a new nationality that brings them zero benefits compared to what they have now, lets be honest here, the US is a fucking joke when it comes to healthcare. There's no benefit in it for Greenland and the benefits Denmark would gain would be overshadowed by the prospect of trade in the future. 70 years ago, you might've been able to just buy land. 2019 is a different age. This is unreasonably stupid and it doesnt matter if it was a Trump proposition, a Bernie Sanders, Obama, Clinton or Bush proposition. Its retarded in every definition of the word and only someone as delusional as Donald Trump would suggest it. Trump has time and time again proven that he is a lousy politician but a great business man. A country is not real estate however, it is a country filled with people and interests. I don't think that fact entered the president's mind.
2019-08-17 19:50
If Greenland is sold for 1 trillion USD hypothetically. That's 200k for every person in Denmark, you could set up a pension plan like Norway.

Trump is visiting Denmark the 2nd and 3rd of September in case you wanted to mark it in your calendar. It just so happens that he is also meeting with the PM of Greenland. Greenland is technically still Denmark's sovereignty. However, Denmark wouldn't be able to pass anything related to a deal with Greenland without their consent.. and the PM has already denied he would consider it, although the possible purchase is only speculation. It also goes against any values the Danish, and Grenlandic, people stand for. If you're hinting at a possible seizing.. then you're beyond naive. The repercussions of that would be too grim for the US congress to ever allow anything remotely similar to such an idea, so I have no idea what your gullible theory is based on.

Imagine being too lazy to read less than 12 lines. That's why you are uneducated, biased, stupid and easily brainwashed. I behave perfectly fine towards people that are open-minded and mutually respectful towards criticism, but when you're purposely ignorant, without a shred of criticism of sources and just generally clueless.. you get exactly what you deserve. I've also, on several occasions, seen you treat people incredibly poorly even when you were in the wrong.. so that's quite hypocritical.
2019-08-17 08:47
I read a lot every day, but obviously not gonna waste my time reading your shit as long as you keep coming to me with your persistent butthurt, there is nothing interesting in it for me.

So, the thing about this is, its likely not going to happen. The US has made 2 attempts before and been shut down both times, and danish politicians are calling him a madman for thinking it'd happen. Greenland has very close relations to Denmark, the laws we have in place are there to preserve Greenland and its natural habitat, and there's been plenty of attempts to get mining rigs or the like set up on Greenland, that have been shut down by Danish law for various reasons. The US would very likely turn it into a gigantic mining area, and military outpost (to have one up on Russia and China and all), to extract the valuable resources, with no thought to the Inuits or the natural habitat they want preserved. There's also the thing with the free healthcare Denmark provides them with, free school and university in Denmark for the Inuits, since they dont have those facilities on Greenland and the medical staff and other supplies we send there to help them out. They can make their own decisions and are a free state within the kingdom of Denmark, and are free to part ways with us Danes any time they like, but i highly doubt Trump/the US would offer up free healthcare, university and medical staff and supplies to the Inuits for as long as Greenland is under US rule. It's a very unlikely scenario, but funny none the less

United States PsychoLogical 
could there be a possibility if we can manage to elect a president that isnt trump and can genuinely try reform this country? :d
2019-08-16 17:44
i highly doubt it regardless of president or offer you come up with to be fair. The social benefits, free healthcare and free education the Inuits are given by Denmark just seems to not be possible as an offer from the US. Mostly due to huge outroar from US citizens and other politicians would try to use it to slander the president at the time, whoever it may be, as a socialist or communist. Another thing to factor in is that Denmark and Greenland both agree that it'd be best for Greenland to be its own, independent country once their economy is good enough to not be reliant on Denmark. The US wouldnt just give up Greenland and let them be their own country like they want to be. edit: forgot to add. i also do not believe the US would send highly trained medical staff and medical supplies to Greenland to provide for the Inuits without it having some sort of cost for the inhabitants. The Inuit representatives in Danish parliament have also made statements proclaiming it'd be a downgrade to switch from being "ruled" by Denmark to being ruled by the US.

why don't you support your fellow asian andrew yang who actually wants to turn the country in a forward direction unlike mr biden or trump #yanggang2020

You and ten other people in all of the US LUL Get ready to be disappointed with either Biden or Trump. I live in Aus and the same type of shit is happening here, but neither of our two leaders are as bad as Trump or Biden.
2019-08-17 14:09
more than that actually. Not like Australia has anyone better anyway :d , then again USA has been corrupt for years now which has gotten worse with “Citizens United” so I cant really say.

More but not enough. Sadly for you Biden might still become the front-runner just because people actually know who he is and are too pussy to vote for someone new like yang. I hate scomo but you can't say he isn't better than trump. Don't worry though. As Aus gets bigger more and more people want to turn it into a shithole like the US is turning into. We're heading down the same road you guys are.

Until? Since forever ? No. Norwegians settled those islands since Viking age, Norway came under danish rule 1537 and Greenland etc was already settled

Ever heard of the Napoleon wars? Treaty of Kiel? I don't know why you are trying to sound smart when you don't know basic history.

U see what I write ? That treaty says Norway didn’t settle those places? I think ur the one to read up on history. Those island taxed to Norway way before we came under Denmark. Should never had belonged to Denmark in the first place.
2019-08-17 01:27
Well yes norway had greenland and iceland before denmark and bcus of the war and england forcing norway from denmark over to sweden and in return we got greenland and iceland... but then again greenland belong to the ppl who lived there so technically it didnt belong to you guys either :D
2019-08-17 12:47
Right and wrong. Vikings settled Greenland, but the norse population completely vanished from Greenland due to climate change (whats called "the small ice age" in the late middle ages. Greenland was resettled by danes around 1720, so it has been part of Denmark for almost 300 years. Heres a link (in danish, but a norwegian can read that):

Well.. of all the countries that I would expect to try to buy human beings, it would be the US. The smaller scale doesn't make it ethically correct. How would you feel if China bought the state you live in? This isn't just about buying landmass, 56k people live on Greenland.
2019-08-17 11:41
I think you are being too hard on our american friends. U can´t blame all americans for Trump, only the minority who voted for him.

I realize that, I just chose a conservative way to argue for the fact that he didn't see the immoral part of buying a country.

Well every country is either a result of forceful conquest or bought land. I don't see how the second method is worse than the first.
2019-08-17 12:43
the only reason Trump was elected cause the other choice was just as bad. 2016 was just a shitshow.
2019-08-17 14:04
You´re right. The democrats got Trump elected by running a shitty candidate, an apparatnik out of touch with voters. Hillary was a symptom of dysfuncional institutions, dominated by spin, lobbyists and other special interests. You see same problems (distance to voters) in places like France. It makes room for the crazies. Seeing current batch of democrats, and who are frontrunners, is just as depressing. Biden is a cross between Hillary and Leslie Nielsen (Naked Gun actor). An empty suit. The rest look like car salesmen or are too liberal to get elected in US.
2019-08-18 00:37
The only Dems I have high hopes for are Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard since both are mainly focusing on policy and can actually try to bring reforms/change to this country heading into a dystopian future instead of constantly playing identity politics like Kamala, Warren, and Booker.
2019-08-18 00:43
Yang and Gabbard are polling 1-2%, won´t they be eliminated soon? And while real policy is the way to govern, isn´t identity politics the way to mobilise new voters? I don´t see many votes moving across the middle. Think election will be won by the side, who can lay their hands on those who didn´t vote in 2016. I only saw 2 debates (because they air when it´s night time in Denmark). Warren came across as sharp, Kamala as too simple/emotional. Didn´t really notice Booker, but he falls into the Car Salesman category for me.
2019-08-18 00:49
No its not. Identity politics are actually turnoffs. Also Yang’s actually surging while Gabbard is as well but is unfortunately getting the “Ron Paul treatment”. In addition polls dont mean shit, important yes, but in general hell no. After the 2016 election, that just proves anyone can be president.

Greenland has been "bad business" for Denmark for the last century or so. Not really tapping into the natural wealth (because of preservation concerns), while spending tons of money making Greenland part of danish welfare system, providing (some) infra structure, health care, education etc. The irony is that all the preservation concerns may have been wasted, because Greenland is changing from pollution and global warming. I´ve been told, that 60% of the Greenland budget is paid for by Denmark, something like half billion Euro every year. Greenland has had a degree of self government for 40 years, but when declaring they want full independence, Denmark has made it clear it would stop paying the bills. Making a move for Greenland now actually makes a lot of sense. Infrastructure is there. With ice melting, new sea ways and possibilities for mining opens up. The chinese have been trying to buy mining rights (like they are doing all over the world). Russia and China is stepping up their presence in the area. A US takeover is just not gonna happen: Greenland may want independence, but not as USA property. If Greenland should be associated with another nation, I would point to Canada - closest neighbor and with its own inuit population and with a "European Style" government. Denmark would want a big return on it´s investments. The days when you could sell part of your country are over. Greenland wouldn´t settle for a downgrade of it´s danish style welfare society to US standards, and having americans fund a danish style society anywhere is as likely as Bernie Sanders becoming President. Also it´s not really in USAs interest to buy. They can simply buy/lease the rights to use certain areas and parts of the underground. Greenland would welcome that, if it could make them financially independent from Denmark => enable full independence.

what would you expect to happen when comprador government get indepedence with the help of united states? see what happened to iceland when we deprived it from you like 75 years before.

Islam is a religion of peace, according to the Holy Book Quran, Islam teaches love and compassion for every human being, no matter their religion. The word “Islam” is derived from the word meaning “peace” in Arabic, it seems quite unnatural that a religion that names itself peace can teach or preach something that is violent or full of aggression. Islam is a religion revealed to mankind with the intention of presenting a peaceful life. Almighty Allah calls all people to live by the moral values He sets so that compassion, mercy, peace, and love can be experienced all over the world. In the Noble Quran Allah (SWT) says: “O You who believe! Enter absolutely into peace (Islam). Do not follow in the footsteps of Shaitan. He is an outright enemy to you.” (Quran, 2: 208)
