Trump Cancels Denmark Trip Because Greenland Is Not For Sale, Gets Torched In Response
President Donald Trump on Tuesday canceled a previously scheduled trip to Denmark after the country’s prime minister rejected his interest in buying Greenland, a Danish territory.
“Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’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,” Trump tweeted.
Trump was invited on an official state visit by the Queen of Denmark. White House Deputy Press Secretary Judd Deere confirmed that the entire trip was cancelled.
Trump mused about acquiring Greenland from Denmark on Sunday, telling reporters that “it’s something we talked about.”
“Denmark essentially owns it, we’re very good allies with Denmark,” he said. “Strategically it’s interesting and we’d be interested, but we’ll talk to them a little bit.”
But, he added, “first we have to find out whether or not they have any interest.”
Frederiksen said they did not.

Some users quickly responded, and they didn’t hold back.
You’re a sociopath. No really. There’s something extremely wrong with you mentally. You call off a meeting with the head of an ally nation because she won’t sell you her country? You are so unfit for this job it’s staggering… #Trump

This is one of those RARE times that a Woman told you NO, and you had to keep your grubby mitts off.
Good for Mette Frederiksen.

We need the rest of the world to know that we’re very sorry and we’re trying to fix it.

Dementia generally garners sympathy, as it should, but when it impacts the entire world, it requires invoking the 25th Amendment.
Unfit for office to the tenth power. #ImpeachTrumpNow

Could you be any fucking dumber? And don’t take that as a challenge. Why don’t you just call it an early night so we grown ups can have some damn peace for a few hours
