Trump: “Nasty”, “Not Nice”, “Inappropriate” of Denmark to Trash My Greenland Proposal

Crybaby shit-for-brains whines about being told just a fraction of the truth of just how idiotic, entitled, tone-deaf, absurd and insulting he was

President Trump continued to distract the public from volatile markets, slowing economic growth and the burgeoning trade war on Wednesday by defending his decision to postpone a state visit to Denmark, the Hill reports.

Trump accused Denmark’s prime minister of making a “nasty and inappropriate” statement by refusing to even discuss his desire to purchase Greenland, a self-governing Danish territory.

Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen criticized Trump on Tuesday over his interested in purchasing Greenland by denouncing the idea as “absurd.”

“Greenland is not Danish. Greenland is Greenlandic. I persistently hope that this is not something that is seriously meant,” Frederiksen told reporters.

Apparently, Trump insists he was being serious when he brought up the possibility of the US buying Greenland. The US military already has a large presence in Greenland, and the Pentagon has raised the idea of buying the island before, to help create a buffer against the Chinese military. The idea, as Trump noted, dates all the way back to President Harry Truman.

“I thought it was a very not nice way of saying something. They could have told me no,” Trump told a group of reporters at the White House before departing for a speech at the AMVETS convention in Kentucky. “All they had to say was ‘we’d rather not do that,'” he added. “Don’t say, ‘what an absurd idea that is.'”

“She’s not talking to me, she’s talking to the United States of America. You don’t talk to the United States that way.”

However, Trump insisted that he loves Denmark, and despite “blowing off” the US, and added that he would reschedule the visit for some day in the not-too-distant future.

“Frankly, we’ll do it another time,” Trump said.

The president’s remarks follow a string of tweets sent Tuesday evening where Trump said he’d be postponing his visit to Denmark.

And after his complaints to the press corps, Trump returned to Twitter to bash Denmark for its stinginess over its NATO contribution.

Here’s video of the press scrum.

Clearly unhinged. He is the king of nasty, “not nice” comments about women, gays, black athletes and immigrants yet he cannot handle having his idea called “absurd.” Definitely heading towards a psychotic break, imo.

The price for Greenland is 100 trillion dollars, cash before delivery.

Denmark is the only country not allowing construction of Russia’s Nord Stream II pipeline through its territorial waters.

Perhaps I’m trying too hard to link Washington’s intimidation on Danish leaders re Nord Stream II with US insistence on discussing the sale of Greenland.

For starters, $70 billion would be a steal. Almost as though it could be printed out of thin air. A lump sum would have probably suited the Danes.

Secondly, if the deal were consummated, China and its associated business entities would likely be forced to give up land titles and would be essentially banished.

I wouldn’t assume to know the next country or island territory on Washington’s list, but in a moment of irrationality my minds wander towards Iceland and Argentina.

How unfortunate Mr. Trump’s gambit wasn’t executed years ago when the US government actually had sovereign gold stores of sufficient quantity to make a plausible offer.

“She’s not talking to me, she’s talking to the United States of America. You don’t talk to the United States that way.”

What an absurd ass is Trump.

Completely and utterly absurd is right! This numb nut does NOT represent the US – in war or trying to buy someone else’s island (not to far from Russia)…the lardbrain (not to forget his body type) is totally off the rails and should be in an institution – in a straightjacket as well as his mouth plugged with something foul tasting…

Why not “buy” Mexico dumb butt?

Then you will not have to build a wall, and they can legally vote in the WAASHINGTON DC election illusion.

Why not just buy China, then there will not need to be a buffer against China, and no need for a trade war.

Buy Russia, then the USA can get real military weapons which really work!

And Russia should buy Cuba and kick out the US military at Gitmo then fill the island with some of their missiles that the US cannot defend against…

Weapons that really work? Hilarious. Their navy is a shambles and most of their nuclear missiles would most likely never launch.

If they allow Tulsi Gabbard any airtime she will win a landslide. But of course they will not.
