In early August 2019 US President Donald Trump floated the idea of buying Greenland.

After the Danish PM dismissed the suggestion of such a land deal as “absurd”, President Trump lashed out at her as “ nasty”, and abruptly called off a previously scheduled state visit.

President Trump said “I thought that the prime minister’s statement…was nasty. All she had to do is say no, we wouldn’t be interested.”

“You don’t talk to the United States that way, at least under me.”
