A Danish report has emerged that President Donald Trump is asking advisers if it is possible for the US to buy Greenland, a self-governing part of Denmark.
The city, mostly covered in ice, colonized the 772,000 square-mile (two-million square kilometer) island in the 18th century and is home to nearly 57,000 people, most of whom belong to the indigenous Inuit community.
The danish report also revealed that the president has been curious about the area’s natural resources and geopolitical relevance. However, there has been no official comment from the White House, and the Danish embassy in Washington has not responded yet.
There has been disagreement since Trump allegedly stated this. While some of his advisors said acquiring Greenland, which is northeast of Canada, could be good for the US, others called it only a “fleeting fascination” from the president.
This isn’t the first time Trump would be expressing interest in foreign properties.
He has in the past claimed that North Korea’s “great beaches” would make ideal locations for condos.
