What was mostly passed off as political fodder a week ago, it appears that President Trump may have been much more serious than he initially led on about purchasing Greenland.

Reports surfaced last week that Trump had varying degrees of interest in purchasing Greenland. Most political pundits and experts passed this off mostly as another ploy by the Trump Administration in attempts to distract people from more important, or more serious issues. It appears, however, that Trump is a bit more serious about purchasing the mostly ice-covered island, which is owned by Denmark.

Trump initially went along with other news outlets and made light of the situation.

However, the Danish Prime Minister, Mette Frederiksen, swiftly turned down even the idea of selling Greenland.

"Greenland is not for sale. Greenland is not Danish. Greenland belongs to Greenland. I strongly hope that this is not meant seriously," Frederiksen told the newspaper Sermitsiaq during a visit to Greenland, Reuters reported.

After hearing Frederiksen's response to Trump's interest in purchasing Greenland, Trump responded by postponing a previously scheduled meeting Copenhagen in early September.

Greenland is seen as an increasingly strategic location for a number of reasons. As the ice melts, it opens up fresh shipping routes in the Arctic region. It can also be used strategically for the US military, although there are already US bases in Greenland. The land mass is also considered to be rich all kinds of very valuable minerals.
