Trump expresses interest in purchasing Greenland: report


>> [APPLAUSE] DAGEN: JOINING ME NOW THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER CHIEF POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR, BYRON YORK. HE’S ALWAYS ENTERTAINING BUT HE MIGHT NOT BE WRONG.>> YOU KNOW, HE IS THE MOST TRANSPARENT CAMPAIGNER IN HISTORY I THINK. HE JUST CAME OUT AND SAID LOOK, YOU’VE GOT TO VOTE FOR ME. IT WAS AN EXTRAORDINARY RALLY LAST NIGHT, HUGE AMOUNTS OF SHOW BUSINESS, AS YOU SAW THE PRESIDENT LOVES TO HANDICAP THE DEMOCRATIC FIELD. HE LIKES THE TURMOIL WE’RE SEE ING IN THE DEMOCRATIC FIELD WITH ELIZABETH WARREN COMING UP AND BERNIE SANDERS COMING DOWN. NO ACCIDENT THAT HE DID IT IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. THE PRESIDENT IS OBVIOUSLY FOCUSING ON THE STATES THAT HE L NEED IN THE GENERAL ELECTION. HE KICKED OFF HIS ENTIRE RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGN IN FLORIDA. HE WAS MOST RECENTLY IN PENNSYLVANIA. BOTH OF THOSE HE WON. HE LOST NEW HAMPSHIRE VERY NARROWLY BY 2,736 VOTES, REALLY REALLY TIGHT. THAT’S A STATE HE HOPES HE CAN PICK UP NEXT TIME. DAGEN: WHAT ABOUT HIS MESSAGING? BECAUSE AGAIN, IN THE MESSAGE AND I’M PARAPHRASEING BUT ON CHINA WE’RE GOING TO WIN THIS. IT’S GOING TO BE GREAT FOR AMERICA. ITS BEEN GREAT SO FAR. THE CONSUMERS AREN’T FEELING IT ALTHOUGH SOME CONSUMER PRICES HAVE GONE UP. OVERALL CONSUMER PRICES HAVE GONE UP IN THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS. IT IS IMPORTERS IN THE U.S. PAYING THESE TARIFFS INTO THE TREASURY DEPARTMENT, HOW THEY’RE SPREAD ACROSS THE SUPPLY CHAIN IS A DIFFERENT STORY BUT NEVERTHELESS, DON’T WORRY ABOUT THAT. DON’T WORRY ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE STOCK MARKET. EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE GRAVY. HOW DOES THAT WORK?>> WELL A LARGE PART OF THE PRESIDENT’S SPEECH LAST NIGHT WAS A REBUTTAL TO ALL THE RECESSION TALK THAT WE’VE BEEN HEARING LATELY, AND HE DOES HAVE A CASE TO MAKE FOR THAT, BUT THE PRESIDENT KNOWS VERY WELL THAT HE IS ON A TIGHT ROPE, AS FAR AS TRADE IS CONCERNED, AND ESPECIALLY WITH CHINA. HE’S SAID THAT TO PEOPLE. IT HAS TO WORK. HE UNDERSTANDS THAT HE STILL HAS THE SUPPORT OF FARMERS ON THIS ISSUE. WE’VE SEEN A NUMBER OF POLLS WHERE FARMERS THINK THAT ULTIMATELY THIS IS GOING TO WORK OUT FOR THEM AND THEY SUPPORT WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS DOING AND ESSENTIALLY BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT DID IT. THEY FELT THAT SOMEBODY HAD TO STAND UP TO CHINA. IT WAS NOT GOING TO BE EASY. NOT GOING TO BE NEAT, BUT SOMEBODY HAD TO DO IT. ON THE OTHER HAND, GO FORWARD A YEAR. IF THERE’S STILL NO CHINA DEAL, THERE’S STILL NOTHING THERE, I MEAN, THIS COULD HURT HIM. THAT’S WHY HE KNOWS HE’S ON A TIGHT ROPE IF YOU CAN FALL OFF IT. DAGEN: WELL I SAID THAT IT WAS LIKE A COUPLE MONTHS AGO AS LONG AS IT WAS THE STATUS QUO, BUT THEN HE ANNOUNCED THIS NEW TARIFF ON THE $300 BILLION BECAUSE THEY START GOING INTO EFFECT SEPTEMBER 1, SO AGAIN, THERE IS THE FIGHT CONTINUES WITH CHINA, SO THERE DOESN’T SEEM TO BE A QUIET ON THAT FRONT AT THIS POINT. I WANT TO MOVE ON TO ISRAEL OVERNIGHT APPROVING THE REQUEST TO VISIT THE WEST BANK ON HUMANITARIAN GROUNDS TO VISIT HER GRANDMOTHER. THIS COMING AFTER THE COUNTRY ORIGINALLY BARRED HER FROM ENTERING. THE CONGRESSWOMAN AGREEING TO CONDITIONS IN A STATEMENT SHE SAID THIS. THIS COULD BE MY LAST OPPORTUNITY TO SEE HER. I RESPECT ANY RESTRICTIONS AND I WILL NOT PROMOTE ANY BOYCOTTS AGAINST ISRAEL DURING MY VISIT. PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU FIRST BANNING TLAIB AND CONGRESSWOMAN ILLHAM OMAR DUE TO THEIR SUPPORT OF THE ANTI-ISRAEL BOYCOTT MOVEMENT. BYRON WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THIS DEVELOPMENT?>> WELL FIRST OF ALL THE ORIGINAL TRIP THAT TLAIB WANTED TO TAKE WAS BILLED BY HER OFFICE AS A VISIT TO PALESTINE, NOT TO ISRAEL. THIS IS SOMETHING THE ISRAELIS DID NOT LIKE TO HEAR AND THEY HAVE PASSED THE ISRAELIS DID PASS A LAW IN 2017 ALLOWING THEM TO BAR ENTRY FROM PROMOTESERS OF THE BDS MOVEMENT SO WHAT BASICALLY, WHAT SHE DID WHO DOES HAVE FAMILY IN ISRAEL IS THAT THEY BASICALLY ALLOWED HER TO ENTER ESSENTIALLY ON HUMANITARIAN GROUNDS AND SHE AGREED NOT TO PROMOTE BDS WHILE SHE WAS THERE. THERE ARE REALLY TWO SIDES TO THIS STORY. I MEAN, THE PEOPLE WHO SAY ISRAEL SHOULD NOT BE IN THE BUSINESS OF THE BARRING U.S. MEMBERS OF CONGRESS FROM VISITING, I THINK THAT’S A VERY LEGITIMATE POINT. ON THE OTHER HAND THEY DID MAKE THIS LAW BECAUSE THEY SIMPLY DO NOT WANT PEOPLE TO COME IN AND PROMOTE BDS. YOU COULD REALLY ARGUE IT BOTH WAYS ON THIS. DAGEN: BDS, BOYCOTT, DIVESTMENT AND SANCTIONS. AND YOUR TAKE ON PRESIDENT TRUMP WANTS TO BUY GREENLAND.>> IT’S FUNNY. EVERYBODY IS JOKING, FINE, BUT THERE IS A NON-CRAZY CASE FOR THIS. I MEAN, GREENLAND HAS IMPORTANT GEOSTRATEGIC MEANING FOR US. WE HAVE AN AIR BASE UP THERE, A VERY LARGE AIR BASE, WAY ABOVE THE ARCTIC CIRCLE. IT’S A BIG PART OF OUR EARLY WARNING MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM. IN 1946 PRESIDENT HARRY TRUE MAN ACTUALLY OFFERED TO BUY GREEN LAND FROM DENMARK WHICH CONTROLS IT THE OFFER WAS $100 MILLION. DENMARK TURNED IT DOWN, DON’T SEE IT HAPPENING TODAY. IT’S KIND OF AN ODD 19TH CENTURY IDEA, THE IDEA THAT YOU WOULD JUST GO BUY SOMETHING BIG LIKE THIS. ON THE OTHER HAND THERE ARE ACTUAL STRATEGIC REASONS TO WANT TO DO IT. DAGEN: I WANT TO MOVE ON TO ONE MORE THING BECAUSE I FOLLOW YOU CLOSELY ON TWITTER, YOU GENIUS, AND YOU’VE BEEN TWEETING ABOUT THIS BYRON. NEW YORK TIMES CHIEF REPORTEDLY TELLING A TOWN HALL EARLIER THIS WEEK THAT THE NEWSPAPERS COVERAGE IS PIVOTING TO ALLEGED RACISM FROM THE PRESIDENT AFTER THE RUSSIA COLLUSION STORY FELL APART. THIS IS ACCORDING TO TRANSCRIPTS GIVEN TO SLATE MAGAZINE. BYRON YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS?>> REALLY AN EXTRAORDINARY STORY. THERE WAS BASICALLY AN EMPLOYEE TOWN HALL ON MONDAY AT THE NEW YORK TIMES, AND DEAN BAQUET, THE EXECUTIVE EDITOR SAID LOOK, WE FOCUSED ENTIRELY ON THE TRUMP RUSSIA MATTER FOR THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF THE PRESIDENT’S TIME IN OFFICE, WE “BUILT OUR NEWS ROOM AROUND THAT STORY” AND THEN CAME THE MUELLER REPORT AND SOME OF OUR READERS WERE ANGUISHED AND SAID THAT GOSH, ROBERT MUELLER IS NOT GOING TO GET THE JOB DONE , SO NOW, WE HAVE A NEW VISION FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS, AND THAT IS TO COVER RACISM AND THE PRESIDENT’S RACISM AND THE PRESIDENT’S SUPPORTER’S RACISM. THIS IS GOING TO BE OUR BIG BIG STORY. IT WAS REALLY AN EXTRAORDINARILY OPEN WAY TO SAY WHAT A NUMBER OF PEOPLE HAVE ACTUALLY SUSPECTED OBSERVING THE TIMES FROM THE OUTSIDE. DAGEN: AND I KNOW THIS IS A SMALL THING, BUT DALE EARNHARDT JR. , HE’S PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST WELL KNOWN SPORTS FIGURES IN THE COUNTRY, AND HIS FAMILY WAS IN A PLANE CRASH YESTERDAY, AND I WENT LOOKING FOR ANY UPDATES ON THAT STORY. I COULDN’T FIND IT. I WAS SCROLLING THROUGH THE FRONT PAGE OF THE WEBSITE. I COULDN’T EVEN FIND A MENTION OF IT. IT’S NOT ON THE FRONT PAGE TODAY BASED ON MY FIRST LOOK AND AGAIN IT’S LIKE ARE YOU A NATIONAL NEWSPAPER OR JUST THE ANTI-TRUMP NEWSPAPER?>> THE TIMES FAMOUSLY DID NOT RECOGNIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF THE DEATH OF DALE EARNHARDT SENIOR, THE ACTUAL SUPER STAR OF STOCK CAR RACING, THE TIMES WAS CRITICIZED FOR NOT REALIZING

  • Let Talib and Omar go there because it's likely Isreal will surveillance them and then arrest them for espionage abs other crimes

  • What utter crap. Palestine is a region. It was never a state, a city or any other 'place'… but a broad region. The earliest description of palestine I can find comes from the early Romans. South East from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea. Northeast from there to about 1/3 the way into Iraq. Due north from there to the border of Turkey and due West from there to the Mediterranean. That whole chunk of real estate was the region known as palestine and in it were nations and cities.

  • As for Ilhan and Tlaib – just because they said they would behave there doesn't mean upon leaving they would run their mouths and disrespect Israel on the way out. I wouldn't trust them either.

  • Buying Geeeland is an excellent idea and we should while it's cheap…. Besides trump is a real estate man he knows his Stuff…..Greenland right now is right now one of those super great deals and we better do it before someone else does… When the world economy improves it will be worth ready 10 to 20 times the cost now

  • "Hello Greenland King person, it's The Trumpster here. We all think you're doing a great job but it's so cold!…too cold!". "I've got this WIN WIN DEAL for you… ok so America wins a bit more. You see we want to MAKE GREENLAND WARM AGAIN!!!". "We'll fit the BEST under-glacial heating system, the best… made in the USA!!… drain the ICE that's migrated there on illegal TERRORIST-BERGS… And rename the island ***GOLDLAND***!!!".

  • 57,000 citizens WHY NOT BUY GREENLAND.. THIS WOULD GIVE US A NUMBER OF RARE RESOURCES… BUT their cost of living is one of the highest in that region..

  • A recession looming over the horizon, and Trump's best idea is to buy the largest island in the world. But then again, Trump will be Trump.

  • What does all that stage setting have to do with Trump wanting to buy Greenland. It's like Fox is trying to tell us what to think. Get to the point. We don't appreciate you trying to set the stage before delivering the facts.

  • Instead of buying Greenland, waste the money on a poor investment like Flint/Baltimore/California/Puerto Rico… you know, where democrats live.

  • Pockets MacCartney says:

    Idiotic suggestion even. Denmark is in no need of money, he cant afford to build his wall, and this is all distraction. Nonsense.

  • Augustus Sebastian Michael says:

    In addition to creation of almost 6 million jobs for Americans, tariffs on Chinese goods have so far created over $63 billion for the US treasury. The tariff money could reach $100 billion next year! However, Trump haters with an unsound mind said Trump had lost the trade battle with China! Whatever they say, having a tons of extra cash to spend is a good thing, doesn't it?

  • Being over 60 Trumps got China exactly where he wants them. Millions in China are losing their jobs like they did to us because of Dems Bill Clinton SCREWED up did the china trade act in 2,000. China wont last a year look at the Protest now!!

  • studio developers2 says:

    GREELAND would pay America, to buy it ! so they get some development there,. and some business there, right now theres NOTHING. basically STARVATION. not even TOURISM.
    yes its a neat idea. great projects great ideas great fun.

  • If you are going to fight a trade war with China, there are going to be casualties. The trouble is no president has had the guts to do so until Trump came along.

  • Hey folks, I got a great plan. I will buy Greenland and with my plan to warm the climate, Greenland will become a giant golf course. I love golf, biggly. You thought Obama played alot? Hell I play about twice as much as he does. Covfefe and MAGA.

  • deleted account says:

    In 1984 after he fathered AFFIRMATIVE action jessy Jackson and al Sharpton wisked trump to the Vatican so he could be trained like a good christain queer.hes just Obamas proxy

  • Kathleen Harms says:

    Agree most people's opinion that Tlaib loves her politics more than her grandmother. Suspect that 
    Aka Omar( Saed Ilme) and Tlaib want to create trouble during their planned visit to Israel!

  • BOYCOTT THE NEW YORK TIMES!!!!!!!! DON'T GIVE THOSE CORRUPT POS's AT THE NEW YORK TIMES ONE PENNY!!!!!! BANKRUPT THE NEW YORK TIMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HARASS THE NEW YORK TIMES EMPLOYEES!!!!!!!!!!!!! VOTE FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP IN NOVEMBER 2020!!!!!!!!!! VOTE THE CORRUPT DEMOCRATS OUT OF OFFICE!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Scott Holliday says:

    The government is broke! and can't even do right for the American people.
    How and the hell can they afford to purchase another country.
    They will just keep committing fraud against the American people, and print somemore funny money; after all, we have let them do it so many times in the past. Somewhere along the line we the people need to say enough is enough, the American people are paying a dept that benefits them, and not us!
    The deficit is there dept created through lies, wars, and greed. Someone please explain to me, how someone making a $174,000 a year, and within 5 years they are millionaires; the only way that can happen, is by selling this country out and stealing from the people that hired them. They forgot what a public servant really is. Its time to remind them, They work for us; Its not the other way around!

  • I wish the Times would report the news instead of trying to make the news.
    Report on the get nothing done, overspending Congress.

  • I went to Wal-Mart today.
    There was a sign over some microwaves reading, “We Support American Jobs.”
    The microwaves were made in China.

  • Paraluman Barcelona says:

    I don't believe that she loves her grandma and give her a visit. I know what his father said that she doesn't care for her real mother. She have another agenda for that matter. I hope she's planning to move to Palestine for good.

  • President Prime Minister Admiral General Aladeen says:

    great plan,. only 21 trillion in debt, so what's the worst that can happen?,…..

  • Tempelton Cane says:

    If Trump wants to do that, we should offer him Quebec for Hawaii here in Canada. He would do that in a second to Demolish Obama’s legacy.
    If only Trudeau was smart. He would probably put an offer on California instead considering his beliefs.

  • Greenland is huge but only 56k people live there. 1/12 the population of Alaska. Pretty sure there will be no riots in the streets if it was bought. Island only makes a billion or two a year. This is actually a good idea. I live in Canada but would much rather US be there for many reasons

  • Hey if we can get it for 3 cents an acre like Seward got Alaska for…..some "folly!" — we could force-relocate all Californians there, and then we wouldn't need to wall off CA! Or at least just force-relocate the ones who want to live there because it's named "Greenland." Those are the idiots we could do without. Two problems solved!

  • THEY SAY SANTA CLAUSE LIVES IN THE SOUTH POLE BUT EVERYONE KNOWS THE SOUTH POLE IS ACTUALLY NOT ICE AND GREENLAND IS ICE , SO BASICALLY WE WILL OWN WHERE SANTA CLAUSE LIVES.

  • I will contribute 1/3 of the funds to purchase Greenland. i recently purchased San Francisco from the state of California for $1.50!
    Yes! $1.50! Planning on turning it into a Cat Litter Box!

  • Buying Greenland is a waste of money which we need in our economy right now. Trump should be worrying about taking care of Americans and putting that money to good practical use. Like education for one. Affordable healthcare, etc. Has he lost his marbles completely?

  • America cannot afford to repair its infrastructure, it cannot afford to help with college tuitions, cannot afford reasonable healthcare, cannot even afford to fix Flint, Michigan's water, but that corrupt orange pinhead thinks the US has the spare cash to buy a giant melting ice cube. Are there any adults left in that failed administration that are keeping an eye on Trump?

  • The NYT is a POS rag. Their objective is to make believe Trump is racist and sell that gaggle to the public. All the BS that fits on the pages to kindle your fire on a chilly NE night. The NYT has lost their credibility when they lost their worthiness and their collective minds when Trump won!… YAY!

  • francis alford says:

    These people don't want this man , in there country. Why do white people always want to take over other peoples land?

    they probably feel, he is screwing up the US. They don't need him blemishing there country.

  • If you don't think the rabid anti-Semite and anti-American islamist subversive will refrain from anti-Israel hate and mischief or pass up propaganda oportunities on her visit to Israel I have a bridge that I'd like to sell to you. Greenland's strategic importance to our country is obvious your snarkey attitudes and the remark about the 19th century are contemptible

  • My Name is Gladiator says:

    We should buy Greenland. You know China will do it if we don't. And it is the last huge land area that could reasonably be purchased.

  • RubiconKLBRUTO Rowman says:

    World knows n Denmark knows Russia made mistakes n at the time, Ruskies did not know about natural resources like today's, so it would be essentially impossible for the US to buy Denmark, unless invaded by Russia or Chinse money is about to take over Greenland or buy out majority Greenland land is LIKE buying Greenland without officially buying n that case Denmark SHOULD SELL TO USA is prudent choice indeed!

  • The play of racism is so divisive and anti American that this paper should cease to exist. The harm that they are causing our country is abhorrent! This crap needs to stop, people will buy good news, not only the bad….

  • Trump should first disestablish NATO and then takeover Greenland by force after he consolidates control over Greenland he should then proceed to ethnically cleanse Greenland of all of the Inuit people living there by killing them all off using chemical weapons and then leaving none but the pure European people to live in Greenland lastly he should repopulate Greenland by offering free US citizenship to anybody and everybody of pure European extraction from both Europe and abroad. While this is all transpiring Trump should issue an executive order baring any and all foreign and domestic news outlets from ever reporting on any and all active war zones in which the US is actively involved in.

  • We would rather give Greenland for free to China than sell to
    Dumbtrump🤦‍♀️🐶
    His stupidity has reached a new low, again.

  • Doesn’t Germany own Denmark? Or the World Bank? It would seem prudent for whom ever they are indebted to take possession of assets to sell!!!

  • Charles walter says:

    Hold on, Harry Truman was the first U.S. president who thought buying greenland was a good Idea, & he actually offered $100,000,000?
    Wasn't Harry a Democrat? Hell, it must be a good idea then.
