Later, the American leader confirmed the interest in acquisition of Greenland and compared the possible purchase of the large transaction on acquisition of real estate.
The Prime Minister of Denmark refused to discuss the sale of autonomy. “Greenland is not for sale. Greenland is not a Danish. Greenland Greenland.
