You must know that when all the ice has melted there will be huge spaces of land to develop a T golf course. And it will be in snowy white America. :twisted:

That was 100% serious. Try and come up with a rational series of thoughts that ends with "we should buy Greenland".

I was waiting for this:
The island's government, however, said in a statement Friday it's not going to happen: "Greenland is not for sale."

I suppose the trumpistas think that Greenland has a better climate than Iceland. I mean, what could be colder than Iceland?

Trump, banking on strong economy to win reelection, frets over a possible downturn

Mounting signs of global economic distress this week have alarmed President Trump, who is worried that a downturn could imperil his reelection, even as administration officials acknowledge that they have not planned for a possible recession.

Trump is banking on a strong economy to win a second term in 2020, and in recent weeks he has impulsively lashed out at the Federal Reserve, pressured Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to label China a “currency manipulator,” and unexpectedly delayed tariffs on Chinese imports out of fear they could depress holiday retail sales.

Yet despite gyrations in the U.S. stock market and economic slowdowns in other countries, officials in the White House, at the Treasury Department and throughout the administration are planning no new steps to attempt to stave off a recession. Rather, Trump’s economic advisers have been delivering the president upbeat assessments in which they argue that the domestic economy is stronger than many forecasters are making it out to be.

In turn, Trump has sought to use his Twitter pulpit to drown out negative indicators. On Thursday, he promoted the U.S. economy as “the Biggest, Strongest and Most Powerful Economy in the World,” and, citing growth in the retail sector, predicted that it would only get stronger. He also accused the news media of “doing everything they can to crash the economy because they think that will be bad for me and my re-election.”

I agree. And, I think it's hilarious. I wasn't making fun of your post, I'm making fun of Trump.

Honestly I wouldn’t even cover administration officials saying that they’re looking into buying Greenland. It is a thing that will literally never happen. They can say what they wish on TV but there’s no need to write stories off of it

I'm still thinking about banging Liz Hurley, too. And I have a better chance of her paying for the dinner than Trump does of buying Greenland.

WTF!!!!!!! Maybe they can get them to throw in Iceland as a twofer...……………….

In a copiousness of really really stupid things having been said, this is right at the top of the heap.

Well, sure. If he were a rational human being. You were expecting DOTUS to say, “Hey, it was worth a shot. Moving on.” ? My first thought when Greenland said “take a flying leap” is that there’s no way DOTUS can save face. So he will project the alternate reality where he doesn’t have to. Easy peasy.
