According to the Wall Street Journal, US President Donald Trump could be calling on his prior experience as a real estate tycoon. As far back as last spring, Trump has expressed interest in buying Greenland. But as an autonomous Danish territory, Greenland is not for sale. The news has been met with skepticism by many in the US and in Denmark, but it wouldn’t be the first time an American President has purchased territory from another nation. Much of the United States was created that way. So, could Greenland be next? The US has reportedly tried to buy the island before! After World War II, officials secretly offered Denmark 100 million dollars in gold bars. Those plans – of course – went nowhere. But now it seems Trump is interested again. The people of Greenland? Not so much.
