Nuuk, Greenland - Danish PM Mette Frederiksen has relented to Donald Trumpâ€™s interest in purchasing Greenland. The deal comes with a price tag of approximately $200 billion, which members of Congress are planning to strip from veterans programs as soon as possible.
At least one took to Twitter to praise the idea:
This idea isn't as crazy as the headline makes it seem. This a smart geopolitical move.
The United States has a compelling strategic interest in Greenland, and this should absolutely be on the table.https://t.co/sEGVV16460

PM Frederiksen has added one stipulation to the deal for Greenland: Donald Trump has to find it on a map without any help.
We will keep you updated with any updates to the Greenland fiasco as it unfolds, especially if Trump figures out Greenland does not mean a land full of golf greens.
Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksenâ€™s comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time….
