Trump reportedly wants to buy Greenland: Is it a crazy idea?


WITH US. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE TONIGHT. SO, ROBIN, IT’S BEEN APPROACHED BEFORE STRATEGICALLY. IT’S AN INTERESTING AREA FOR THE UNITED STATES. IT’S SORT OF THE MIRROR, KIND OF, OF ALASKA ON THE OTHER SIDE WITH CHANNELS THROUGH THE ARTIC OCEAN. IS THIS A CRAZY IDEA?>>LOOK, GEO STRATEGICALLY, THIS COULD BE A GREAT IDEA IF IT WERE FOR SALE. BUT, THEY HAVE MADE IT PERFECTLY CLEAR THAT IT’S NOT LIKE YOU JUST SAID IN THE LEAD IN TO THIS SEGMENT. I THINK THAT HONESTLY THIS IS A GREAT DISTRACTION. AND THE PRESIDENT IS JUST FANTASTIC AT DOING THIS. WE SAW A LOT OF TWEETS FROM HIM YESTERDAY ABOUT THE ECONOMY, REASSURING US WITH THAT I KNOW VERTED YIELD CURVE THAT EVERYTHING IS GOING SMOOTH. AND, YOU KNOW, WE HAD THAT LEAKED EXECUTIVE ORDER PROPOSING THE INTERNET. I DON’T THINK THAT’S GOING ANYWHERE. THIS IS A FANTASTIC DISTRACTION. LOOK, IT’S OUR LEAD STORY TONIGHT. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING THAT PROBABLY WON’T HAPPEN. IF IT DID, I THINK IT PROBABLY WOULD BE GREAT FOR US. LIKE I SAID, GEO STRATEGICALLY, ESPECIALLY WITH THE URANIUM RESOURCES, MARTHA.>>Martha: YEAH. IT’S INTERESTING. BECAUSE DURING THIS DISCUSSION AND THE REPORT, IT TALKS ABOUT HOW THERE WAS DISCUSSION THAT DENMARK WAS HAVING SOME FINANCIAL TROUBLE OVER ITS STEANGS TO GREENLAND. AND THAT WAS SORT OF WHAT PROMPTED KIND OF THIS INITIAL CONVERSATION AND THERE WAS THE DISCUSSION THAT IT HAD BEEN TRIED BEFORE. HERE IS SECRETARY MIKE POMPEO BACK ON MAY 6TH IN FINLAND. WATCH THIS.>>THE ARTIC IS AT THE FOREFRONT OF OPPORTUNITY AND ABUNDANCE. IT HOUSES 13% OF THE WORLD’S UNDISCOVERED OIL, 30% OF ITS UNDISCOVERED GAS. AND AN ABUNDANCE OF URANIUM, RARE MINERALS, GOLD DIAMONDS AND MILLIONS OF SQUARE MILES OF UNTAPPED RESOURCES.>>Martha: SO, MICHAEL, HOW SERIOUS DO YOU THINK THIS IDEA MIGHT BE?>>IT’S QUITE SERIOUS, ACTUALLY. I MEAN, THAT’S THE THING ABOUT LAND IS THAT GOD ISN’T MAKING ANY MORE OF IT, IT’S USUALLY A GOOD INVESTMENT. REAL ESTATE HAS PAID OFF WELL FOR THE UNITED STATES, THE LOUISIANA PURCHASE. THE ANNEXATION OF TEXAS, CALIFORNIA. ANOTHER THING THAT MIKE POMPEO POINTED OUT IF THE DIRE WARNINGS ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING DO COME TRUE, YOU COULD BE LOOKING AT NEW TRADING ROUTES BEING OPENED UP THROUGH THE ARTIC, THIS COULD BE IN HIS WORDS THE SUE HE SEE OR PANAMA CANAL OF THE 21st CENTURY. I DO THINK IT’S A SERIOUS THING TO MENTION. OBVIOUSLY WE TRIED TO BUY IT IN 1946 FOR $100 MILLION. THE PRICE MIGHT BE GOING UP. I DON’T THINK IT’S TOTALLY OFF OF THE TABLE. FROM A GEO STRATEGIC POINT OF VIEW, I THINK IT’S TOTALLY WORTH BRINGING UP. TO THE QUESTION OF WHETHER OR NOT DONALD TRUMP IS MERELY DISTRACTING. IT IS TRUE THAT DONALD TRUMP IS THE KING OF CONTROLLING THE MEDIA NARRATIVE. HE HAS THIS KNACK OF BRINGING UP ACTUALLY SERIOUS CONCEPTS. AND BECAUSE HE IS THE ONE WHO IS BRINGING IT UP, PEOPLE DISMISS IT OUT OF HAND. I THINK IT’S A BRILLIANT IDEA. I THINK WE SHOULD LOOK FORWARD TO IT. IF DENMARK SAYS IT’S NOT FOR SALE, THAT SOUNDS LIKE THE BEGINNING OF A REAL NEGOTIATION. PERHAPS WE WILL ACTUALLY SEE THE ART OF THE DEAL.>>Martha: WELL, IT’S POSSIBLE. AND IT’S INTERESTING TO NOTE, ALSO, THAT CHINA WANTED TO BUILD THREE AIRPORT FACILITIES, YOU KNOW, THERE AND THAT WAS SORT OF SHUT DOWN BY THE UNITED STATES. SO THERE ARE DEFINITELY, RUSSIA, CHINA, THE UNITED STATES ARE ALL EXPRESSING SOME INTEREST IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD. AND I THINK WHENEVER THAT IS HAPPENING, YOU HAVE TO SORT OF LOOK AT IT AT LEAST WITH.>>Anna: LIT PARTICULAR SERIOUS EYE IN TERMS OF THE STRATEGIC IMPLICATIONS OF IT. AND IF IT’S TRUE THAT DENMARK IS HAVING SOME FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES WITH THEIR COMMITMENT TO GREENLAND, THAT ALSO IS AN OPEN QUESTION AS WELL. BUT I ALSO THINK THAT THEY ARE INTERESTED IN — I THINK THIS IS GOOD FOR GREENLAND, ROBIN BECAUSE TODAY AND YESTERDAY, EVERYBODY IS GOOGLING GREENLAND AND LOOKING AT IT AND LOOKING AT PICTURES OF GREENLAND. IT STRIKES ME THAT EVERYBODY HAS BEEN GOING TO ICELAND, RIGHT? ICELAND IS LIKE THE TOURIST CAPITAL OF THE WORLD. EVERYBODY YOU GO YOU SEE PICTURES OF THEMSELVES IN THE BLUE LAGOON MORE THAN 2 MILLION TOURISTS WENT TO ICELAND IN THE MOST RECENT TOURISM CALENDAR WHICH I THINK IS 2017. EVERYBODY WANTS TO GO THERE. GREEN LAND LOOKS AT THAT. THEY HAVE GOT ONLY 84,000 PEOPLE COMING TO GREENLAND, LIKE MAYBE THIS IS ALL GOOD FOR THEM.>>AND IT WILL BE INTERESTING, MARTHA, TO SEE EXACTLY HOW THIS WORKS WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP’S VISIT TO DENMARK NEXT MONTH TO SEE HOW FAR HE GETS WITH THESE CONVERSATIONS. AND, YEAH, I THINK IT’S PROBABLY GOOD FOR THEIR TOURISM. ON ONE HAND, YOU KNOW, MAKE LIGHT OF THE CONVERSATION. I ALMOST WISH THAT HE WOULD PROPOSE TO BUY THE MALDIVES BECAUSE I SURE COULD USE A VACATION. BUT, YOU KNOW, I DON’T THINK THESE ARE HARMFUL DISCUSSIONS. IT’S DEFINITELY OUT OF LEFT FIELD. I JUST KNOW THAT, YOU KNOW, IF YOU LOOK AT OUR NATIONAL DEBT, DIVIDED UP PER CAP TAX WE ARE LOOKING AT OVER $65,000 PER PERSON. I DON’T THINK IT’S NECESSARILY THE RIGHT TIME

  1. That would be Smokin Sweet! Will we buy it for a Giant Resort or all the lost nukes laying around out there? If it's for a Resort / Holliday spot for Meikans will he change the name to Trumpland? Talk about heads exploding. Maybe they could make Trumpland the 51st(or if your in the Soetoro administration the 57th) state? Bing-Bada-Boom heads really exploding and all the Anti-Trumpers will have a constant reminder of the Man, the Myth, the Legend.

  2. that would be Perfect, both can make profit . And…the Left Politics can be pushed back also….nice…Please mr. Trump..if you can aford it…Do It

  3. Hell I'd move into Greenland if it became a State. Question is do the people of Greenland want this. I'd imagine not.

  4. Can't hardly getting funding for a wall Mexico was going to pay for but wants to by Greenland? This right here is why most of the world thinks he is a joke and a half.

  5. We do not want to hear from Robin Biro- he's an Obama supporter. Put him on the sidewalk selling pencils for his crime of helping out a Marxist and a free country.

  6. USA got a no back in 1946. You will still get a no in 2019. Greenland is not for sale. Stop bugging us and move on.

  7. It's not hard to see many news and opinion pieces on Fox News are left leaning. That's why I dropped cable and satellite, because Fox use to be the go to news, but not anymore. OANN is the go to news for conservatives and people who want truth, not hipped up liberalism.

  8. Yes and I also have a 1999 Corolla for sale few dents here and there the interior well we won't talk about that other than that in great shape…. Fake news get out of here their at it again.. Might be a good idea America's being over run will somebody please bring the flag and you know that's a joke I ain't going nowhere 😆😂😂😂😂😂😂😒😈😈😈😈

  9. Whether or not Greenland is for sale is the minor point. The bigger question is, "do Danish citizens in Greenland want to be part of the U.S.A." My gut tells me that they are happy the way they are.

  10. I live in Denmark and work in the Danish financial sector, and Denmark does NOT have financial difficulties in retaining Greenland. By contrast, Denmark is experiencing strong economic growth. So stop your lies!

  11. I don't think is a crazy idea to buy Greenland, he knows about real state and things like that, so if he sees is for advantage to the USA, i think he should do it! then people can move there too..I think is a GREAT IDEA!!

  12. Trump to Denmark:
    "This contract sells Greenland to USA"
    Chairman of the JCOS (Luca brazzi godfather) stand next to Denmark president with desert eagle .50 pointed at head.
    Trump: " Now either your signature or your brains will be on it"

  13. Mr Trump: Nov. 1 2019 England is for sale just 1 $ , Buckinham Palace & Debts included and for your info Denmark is a rich,wealthy country, and why should it sell their resources. Danes donot like Trump & co. They will be even richer together with the Greenlanders. This story is bollocks.

  14. why would they sell it they have healthcare paid vacation and family leave and free education all things that we dont have they will never sell

  15. They don't want that?! What are you frigin serious? They are bright, kind people! They don't need America's discord and corruption!! What he thinks he can bully them into selling? I don't think it will work!

  16. "Having financial troubles over the assistance of Greenland"

    Course Denmark isn't having financial troubles over Greenland. That's just a straight up lie.

  17. Lol scrolling through the comments section with all these idiots thinking that greenland or denmark are gonne agree to this. Dont get your weird hopes up.

  18. With an already skyrocketing deficit, trying to spend multiple billions on such a fool's errand would be preposterous even if it was available, which it isn't.

  19. Of course Greenland is not for sale. Greenland is not just a Country (who has it's own parliament, goverment and primeminister) it's also a people. And you can't sell a people.
    And no Denmark is not having any finacial truble about Greenland.
    And if Greenland or any other area of the Kingdom were up for sale. I think the danish people would go mad as hell. I know I would. And The Queen can't sell anything or take any actions for it. She dossn't have that kind of power. And she loves Greenland more than anything.

    But here's an idea. Denmark buys the US for some small ridiculus amount of money (just like the US payed for the Danish West Indies / US vergin Islands) and we take control of the goverment and impliment the Scandinavian wellfaresystem to all of the US. Then I think America will be great again. And let's just make the danish Queen an Empress of the US. deal?

  20. Trump made himself very "popular" With the Queen of Denmark. and he likes the Royalties. so stupid! which century do he and you guys live in?

  21. how stupid Can you be? Firstly removerførsel the nuclear bomb you lost in 1968, before starting TALKING about INVESTMENTS, NOT purchase , in Greenland!

  22. It would be interesting, but if Greenland belonged to the US there would be a flow of non-white immigrants. Furthermore, allowing easier access for them to Europa. I‘m against the idea for this reason solely.

  23. somehow I don't think Greenlanders want American gun "rights" foisted on them, nor do they want to lose their public healthcare system

  24. Can you believe the sheer arrogance of the guy on the left being interviewed in this video by the news presenter, when he said, even if Denmark says no to selling Greenland, that seems like the beginning of a real negotiation deal. Unbelievable!
    If Denmark and Greenland can attract suitable investment, they can make trillions for their economies, minus trumps interference.

  25. pompass pompeo is as FOS as is his master of morons. No one mentions the most precious of all resources, fresh water. Trump said he was a Swede, than changed his ethnicity to Kraut, now he is probably going to tell the Danish he is one of them..Donald von douchbag,

  26. Is this a crazy idea? The answer to your question is a resounding, unequivocal yes. It is absolutely, ridiculously, off the wall crazy. We can’t take care of our infrastructure and people here, but let’s buy another country. One that isn’t even for sale. Yes, this is crazy.

  27. Greenland has been part of Denmark since the viking age.. We are not selling! And neither does the inhabitants! Many Danes live there as well…
    And if you try to steal it we will ally with Russia to take it back!
    USA is getting scary now, if you got any resources they need, they will try to steal it!
    If this happens Im gonna volunteer in the Russian army to free occupied Greenland..

  28. Canada wouldn’t have massacred millions of Inuits if Inuits were Caucasian like Sami people. The racial caste in the West is ridiculous and cruel. China won’t treat them so bad like Canada or Denmark does, China will only brainwash them to adore Xi Jinping so taken by China is far better than now being colonized and abused by brutal Viking.

  29. India and Pakistan are on the verge of war and Trump jumps into action and tries to buy Greenland. Very stable genius indeed!

  30. Small minds don't understand what Trump is trying to do. The US has tried twice in the past century to buy Greenland. Both attempts failed. Greenland has strategic value, as well as it's minerals. Chinese have realized that and getting a foothold in Greenland. Russians as well, because Greenland will become the new frontier. Small minded, uneducated Americans who think history started when they were born, will not understand Trump and his genius political moves.

  31. Fools on Fox ,Pompeo statement "The Ice holds 30% of the Worlds Oil " and highest concentration of Uranium. The Oceans have greater amounts of both, and we need less of both each year. With Electric cars and hybrids that get 40mpg.Not to mention Uranium is not rare, it's as common as Tin which is everywhere. This is either a distraction, or ridiculous take your pick

  32. The usual journalistic standard from FOX News. Denmark cannot sell Greenland because Greenland has autonomy.

    In addition, FOX News knows nothing about Denmark. We saw this clearly when Denmark was compared to Vensuela. Denmark does not sell its inhabitants. We have a different view of people than the United States has.

  33. Australia, the smallest of the seven traditionally recognized continents, is today the only one that is wholly the domain of a single national state. The much larger continent of North America, geologically defined, comprises the USA (including Alaska but not Hawaii), Canada (including French-speaking Quebec), Greenland, Mexico, all of the Central American countries from Guatemala down to Panama, and the Caribbean islands.

    So long as they recognize it as such, there's nothing particularly odd if Americans sometimes indulge themselves a whimsical but impractical aspiration to make future political boundaries congruent with natural rather than current political or ethno-linguistic ones. In the specific case of Greenland, I don't think the population would wish to trade their homeland's established status as a self-governing dominion within the Kingdom of Denmark―itself a member of the European Union―for something resembling the questionable privileges enjoyed by the U.S. citizens of Puerto Rico.

  34. We need to replenish the ocean with icebergs
    Take ocean water freeze with ship ice makers

    Create ships that will infact cool the oceans it goes thru

    I don’t know what would happen

  35. Denmark says it's not for sale. Has anyone looked at their national debt? Make them another offer. Their socialist paradise is failing fast. They need all the help they can get.

  36. zio slaves of america doesn't need more land ffs. america is barely even white anymore. we don't want that country to grow. it's time to fall ffs.

  37. Isn't there a safe place to retreat, without the resources being sucked out of it and then talk about climate change!

  38. That current president certainly is an insulting dickhead isn't he. Maybe best to offer Texas in trade and let the Danish deal with the "invaders!" Then we could get that sorted out in a competent way.

  39. Once the US gets it they will confiscate the best area then put the sign "white only, no Inuit or bears allowed" like Brits put the sign " No Chinese or dogs allowed" in the white residence area after they invaded and colonized Hong Kong. Segregation is a typical behaviour of the Anglo world.

  40. “Reports of Denmark having financial troubles over its assistance to Greenland” …

    Totally made up BS

    Denmark could not even sell Greenland if we wanted to.
    How can these people be on tv and know so little about basic politics?
