Trump reportedly wants to buy Greenland: Is it a crazy idea?


WITH US. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE TONIGHT. SO, ROBIN, IT’S BEEN APPROACHED BEFORE STRATEGICALLY. IT’S AN INTERESTING AREA FOR THE UNITED STATES. IT’S SORT OF THE MIRROR, KIND OF, OF ALASKA ON THE OTHER SIDE WITH CHANNELS THROUGH THE ARTIC OCEAN. IS THIS A CRAZY IDEA?>>LOOK, GEO STRATEGICALLY, THIS COULD BE A GREAT IDEA IF IT WERE FOR SALE. BUT, THEY HAVE MADE IT PERFECTLY CLEAR THAT IT’S NOT LIKE YOU JUST SAID IN THE LEAD IN TO THIS SEGMENT. I THINK THAT HONESTLY THIS IS A GREAT DISTRACTION. AND THE PRESIDENT IS JUST FANTASTIC AT DOING THIS. WE SAW A LOT OF TWEETS FROM HIM YESTERDAY ABOUT THE ECONOMY, REASSURING US WITH THAT I KNOW VERTED YIELD CURVE THAT EVERYTHING IS GOING SMOOTH. AND, YOU KNOW, WE HAD THAT LEAKED EXECUTIVE ORDER PROPOSING THE INTERNET. I DON’T THINK THAT’S GOING ANYWHERE. THIS IS A FANTASTIC DISTRACTION. LOOK, IT’S OUR LEAD STORY TONIGHT. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING THAT PROBABLY WON’T HAPPEN. IF IT DID, I THINK IT PROBABLY WOULD BE GREAT FOR US. LIKE I SAID, GEO STRATEGICALLY, ESPECIALLY WITH THE URANIUM RESOURCES, MARTHA.>>Martha: YEAH. IT’S INTERESTING. BECAUSE DURING THIS DISCUSSION AND THE REPORT, IT TALKS ABOUT HOW THERE WAS DISCUSSION THAT DENMARK WAS HAVING SOME FINANCIAL TROUBLE OVER ITS STEANGS TO GREENLAND. AND THAT WAS SORT OF WHAT PROMPTED KIND OF THIS INITIAL CONVERSATION AND THERE WAS THE DISCUSSION THAT IT HAD BEEN TRIED BEFORE. HERE IS SECRETARY MIKE POMPEO BACK ON MAY 6TH IN FINLAND. WATCH THIS.>>THE ARTIC IS AT THE FOREFRONT OF OPPORTUNITY AND ABUNDANCE. IT HOUSES 13% OF THE WORLD’S UNDISCOVERED OIL, 30% OF ITS UNDISCOVERED GAS. AND AN ABUNDANCE OF URANIUM, RARE MINERALS, GOLD DIAMONDS AND MILLIONS OF SQUARE MILES OF UNTAPPED RESOURCES.>>Martha: SO, MICHAEL, HOW SERIOUS DO YOU THINK THIS IDEA MIGHT BE?>>IT’S QUITE SERIOUS, ACTUALLY. I MEAN, THAT’S THE THING ABOUT LAND IS THAT GOD ISN’T MAKING ANY MORE OF IT, IT’S USUALLY A GOOD INVESTMENT. REAL ESTATE HAS PAID OFF WELL FOR THE UNITED STATES, THE LOUISIANA PURCHASE. THE ANNEXATION OF TEXAS, CALIFORNIA. ANOTHER THING THAT MIKE POMPEO POINTED OUT IF THE DIRE WARNINGS ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING DO COME TRUE, YOU COULD BE LOOKING AT NEW TRADING ROUTES BEING OPENED UP THROUGH THE ARTIC, THIS COULD BE IN HIS WORDS THE SUE HE SEE OR PANAMA CANAL OF THE 21st CENTURY. I DO THINK IT’S A SERIOUS THING TO MENTION. OBVIOUSLY WE TRIED TO BUY IT IN 1946 FOR $100 MILLION. THE PRICE MIGHT BE GOING UP. I DON’T THINK IT’S TOTALLY OFF OF THE TABLE. FROM A GEO STRATEGIC POINT OF VIEW, I THINK IT’S TOTALLY WORTH BRINGING UP. TO THE QUESTION OF WHETHER OR NOT DONALD TRUMP IS MERELY DISTRACTING. IT IS TRUE THAT DONALD TRUMP IS THE KING OF CONTROLLING THE MEDIA NARRATIVE. HE HAS THIS KNACK OF BRINGING UP ACTUALLY SERIOUS CONCEPTS. AND BECAUSE HE IS THE ONE WHO IS BRINGING IT UP, PEOPLE DISMISS IT OUT OF HAND. I THINK IT’S A BRILLIANT IDEA. I THINK WE SHOULD LOOK FORWARD TO IT. IF DENMARK SAYS IT’S NOT FOR SALE, THAT SOUNDS LIKE THE BEGINNING OF A REAL NEGOTIATION. PERHAPS WE WILL ACTUALLY SEE THE ART OF THE DEAL.>>Martha: WELL, IT’S POSSIBLE. AND IT’S INTERESTING TO NOTE, ALSO, THAT CHINA WANTED TO BUILD THREE AIRPORT FACILITIES, YOU KNOW, THERE AND THAT WAS SORT OF SHUT DOWN BY THE UNITED STATES. SO THERE ARE DEFINITELY, RUSSIA, CHINA, THE UNITED STATES ARE ALL EXPRESSING SOME INTEREST IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD. AND I THINK WHENEVER THAT IS HAPPENING, YOU HAVE TO SORT OF LOOK AT IT AT LEAST WITH.>>Anna: LIT PARTICULAR SERIOUS EYE IN TERMS OF THE STRATEGIC IMPLICATIONS OF IT. AND IF IT’S TRUE THAT DENMARK IS HAVING SOME FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES WITH THEIR COMMITMENT TO GREENLAND, THAT ALSO IS AN OPEN QUESTION AS WELL. BUT I ALSO THINK THAT THEY ARE INTERESTED IN — I THINK THIS IS GOOD FOR GREENLAND, ROBIN BECAUSE TODAY AND YESTERDAY, EVERYBODY IS GOOGLING GREENLAND AND LOOKING AT IT AND LOOKING AT PICTURES OF GREENLAND. IT STRIKES ME THAT EVERYBODY HAS BEEN GOING TO ICELAND, RIGHT? ICELAND IS LIKE THE TOURIST CAPITAL OF THE WORLD. EVERYBODY YOU GO YOU SEE PICTURES OF THEMSELVES IN THE BLUE LAGOON MORE THAN 2 MILLION TOURISTS WENT TO ICELAND IN THE MOST RECENT TOURISM CALENDAR WHICH I THINK IS 2017. EVERYBODY WANTS TO GO THERE. GREEN LAND LOOKS AT THAT. THEY HAVE GOT ONLY 84,000 PEOPLE COMING TO GREENLAND, LIKE MAYBE THIS IS ALL GOOD FOR THEM.>>AND IT WILL BE INTERESTING, MARTHA, TO SEE EXACTLY HOW THIS WORKS WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP’S VISIT TO DENMARK NEXT MONTH TO SEE HOW FAR HE GETS WITH THESE CONVERSATIONS. AND, YEAH, I THINK IT’S PROBABLY GOOD FOR THEIR TOURISM. ON ONE HAND, YOU KNOW, MAKE LIGHT OF THE CONVERSATION. I ALMOST WISH THAT HE WOULD PROPOSE TO BUY THE MALDIVES BECAUSE I SURE COULD USE A VACATION. BUT, YOU KNOW, I DON’T THINK THESE ARE HARMFUL DISCUSSIONS. IT’S DEFINITELY OUT OF LEFT FIELD. I JUST KNOW THAT, YOU KNOW, IF YOU LOOK AT OUR NATIONAL DEBT, DIVIDED UP PER CAP TAX WE ARE LOOKING AT OVER $65,000 PER PERSON. I DON’T THINK IT’S NECESSARILY THE RIGHT TIME

  • Australia is today the only continent that is wholly the domain of a single national state. The continent of North America, geologically defined, comprises the USA (including Alaska but not Hawaii), Canada (including French-speaking Quebec), Greenland, Mexico, the Central American countries down to Panama, and the Caribbean islands. Americans are quite justified in indulging themselves a whimsical (so long as they recognize it's impractical) aspiration to make future political boundaries congruent with natural rather than current political or ethno-linguistic ones. In the specific case of Greenland, I don't think the population would willingly trade its existing self-governing dominion status within the Kingdom of Denmark for the same privileges enjoyed by the U.S. citizens of Puerto Rico.

  • ajergrey 1 posted a terror active treat in this comment section it’s a very serious one Google and Fox left it untouched It involves mass shootings and mass graves and a mass terror attack It’s highlighted below Poster is a US male with no valid passport that’s is a serious danger to EU citizens in the US but not outside the US but could be promoting terrorism in the EU Poster can harm anybody anytime and looks to be harming large groups of people and the terror treat was triggered by a fabricated story misusing an EU country and misusing an EU country to promote extremist US terrorism

  • It will happen …. and Denmark, the Socialist nation that it is, is going broke and cannot sustain the tiny towns and few huts anyway…. Beside that, there will be conflict over THIS idea …. It may not seem like it, but there will be blood. There always is …

  • Taylor Curtis Braz says:

    I think that we should buy Greenland so that I can get a mining job there, so that I can get help getting my student debt paid off.

  • I just got off the phone with Bjork she said Iceland is for sale. Maybe someone at FOX could let Hannity know and he could tell Mr. President.

  • Even talking about this lowers your IQ! When mad king George started talking to tree's these peanuts would be asking which variety are the best conversationalists ! GET A FU'"(^KING GRIP

  • And additionally we could send all of the Democratic/Hollywood pedophiles to jail up there after their convictions and sentencing.

  • T. Noel Trudell-Kays says:

    This is a distraction just like he said. I wonder what important thing are going on in the world. Fox, why are you disabling comments on your Jeffrey Epstein coverage? What's up?

  • 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.

  • trump 2020 keep AMERICA great again Trump for president TRUMP AND ALL PATRIOT AMERICANS that support TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • "Try not to mention Clinton-Epstein-Weinstein and the entire FBI Hollywood porn industry in the conversation FOX Team !"

  • Cool Hand Mark says:

    … cue the typical right-wing nut-job conspiracy-theorist's accusing "the Clinton's" of having something to do with Epstein's suicide. And as usual, FOX has once again disabled the comment sections on their video reports because they don't want the entire world to see just how insane their followers are… but boy, they sure do love freedom of speech! Good thing CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, TYT, Secular Talk etc never disable theirs… guess we know who the real freedom-loving American's are!

  • DO YOU THINK THAT DONALD TRUMP THAT BUILT AN EMPIRE, DOESN'T KNOW THAT GREENLAND IS NOT FOR SAIL.. HE IS A VERY SMART LEADER,THIS IS A DIVERSION FOR THE MEDIA AND DEMOCRATS ONLY, TRUMP KNOWS HIS ENEMIES BE SURE OF THAT..THE MEDIA RAN WITH THIS STORY JUST AS TRUMP PLANNED IT,. HE DOESN'T WANT GREENLAND HE IS GIVING THE MEDIA SOMETHING TO CHASE AFTER THEIR TAILS..TRUMP IS ALWAYS 3 STEPS AHEAD OF THESE SO CALLED PUNDITS OF PROPAGANDA. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THIS MAN TRUMP..DIVERSION IS A GREAT TACTIC USED IN A BATTLE, BUT DON'T TELL THE DEMS AND MEDIA ABOUT IT..LOL THIS MAN TRUMP WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY, AS ONE OF THE BEST LEADERS IN THE WORLD, HE IS BRAVE AND COURAGEOUS AND DOESN'T BACK DOWN AND YES HE LOVES THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND HIS COUNTRY. BELIEVE THIS, GOD IS WATCHING OVER THIS PRESIDENT AND ANOINTED HIM TO RESCUE AMERICA FROM THE ENEMY…..THANK YOU LORD JESUS!!!!!!!!

  • how could he forget the purchase of the panama canal zone in the list lul. arguably one of americas greatest gifts to the world next to GPS XD

  • Really fox fair and balanced both guest are on the same side also it's never going to happen but why are you bothered about the resources there I mean climate change is a hoax right so you would not be able to get them because they are buried under millions of tons of ice could it be truth is you know climate change is a thing but you are so far up oil and coal companies asses you gave to make yourselves look dumb like this

  • I am Danish. 1) I am happy that Trump won, even more that Hillary lost. 2) But we will NEVER EVER sell Greenland; no matter who is asking. We have been there since the first Vikings arrived 1200 years ago; that is 700 years before the colonisation of US even started. 3) US foreign debt is 107 % of GDP. Denmark’s foreign debt is 0 – we have foreign ASSETS equivalent to 63 % of GDP, so that we should have financial challenges is outright BS. 4) Greenland and Iceland can’t be compared.

  • The world also has a serious fresh water crisis, in India, Africa, Australia, and the midwest of the United States. Meanwhile, accelerating summer snow-melt and retreat of Greenland's glaciers is flushing 50-billion tons of fresh water into the North Atlantic every year, thus turning it into salt-water. If, for once, we — the collective members of the so-called 'intelligentsia" could set aside the need to identify 'who is responsible for the problem', and instead, focus on how to fix it, we'd all be better off.

    One of the major accelerants of glacier decomposition on the Greenland Ice Sheet is warmer Atlantic sea-water mixing with runoff under the glacial ice flow, in effect, hollowing out the glacier from below. If the Trump Administration proposed construction of a series of coffer-dams at major glacial outlets on Greenland, the fresh water snow melt could be captured before reaching the Atlantic, while preventing ambient salt-water erosion of the underside of the glaciers.

    The still-fresh melt water contained by the coffer dam would be directed into an aqueduct under the Greenland Sea, which would convey it through Canada and the US, all the way to Central America, thereby revitalizing agricultural productivity throughout the hemisphere. Greenland's share of the agricultural revenues would enable it to become an independent sovereign nation, resulting in a win-win situation for all involved.

  • Sanjar Skrenes says:

    I've never understood why Canada has never tried to buy Greenland. It
    makes the most sense to me, yet no one seems to talk about it. It's so
    close that it's practically an extension of the Canadian Arctic
    Archipelago, and it's people are virtually the same as those in the
    Canadian north. Canada is also a close ally of the US, and would
    therefore keep it out of Chinese/others' hands. This should be a thing,
    yet I don't know why it isn't.

  • We BOUGHT Alaska from Russia, the South West from Mexico, Central USA from France. What is the problem with BUYING land ?

  • Vincent Blanchard says:

    Yep the Danes are in need for money. Besides they could find an interest in being defended by the US since the Russians are quite close to them. Also considering the way the EU is going (Brexit and other anti EU front manoeuvers getting traction), Denmark could be ripe for some kind of deal.

  • I know a lot about Greenland, and it is a nice place, with untapped resources. But, yeah, get the yards distracted. He should tell them, hes going to open up a Walmart on the moon,so they can flip out about the evil white colonialism for a month and watch protesters try to put rockets on their Kayaks to stop him.

  • Jukka Ollikainen says:

    If only you had the money, money, money, money, money. But hey, you can always print or borrow it and give it to the corporations! Like some real stable Geanieus!

    Thoughts and prayers from Finland!
