Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen has said Greenland is not for sale and Trump's idea of buying it is "an absurd discussion". "But we can see a rising interest in the Arctic from other countries, which impacts the security aspect - something we must react to", Frederiksen told TV2 News. America has a long history of buying huge swaths of land, including Alaska and most of the central U.S. Supporters of the idea say Greenland has strong strategic military value.

Trump tweeted out a photo of Greenland with a picture of Trump International Hotel Las Vegas photoshopped into the photo, writing: "I promise not to do this to Greenland!".

President Donald Trump has likened buying Greenland to "a large real estate deal" after confirming interest in buying the world's largest island from Denmark.

But after Denmark's Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen called Mr Trump's musing "an absurd discussion", he has chose to postpone the meeting. "We're open for business, not for sale", reads a statement from the minister of foreign affairs in the government of Greenland.

An official meeting between Trump and Kielsen is being prepared while Trump is in Copenhagen for an official visit on 2 and 3 September.

Cent stops Wendy Williams from entering his party
It does appear that Wendy did eventually make it inside the bash, as she posted photos with her son, Kevin Hunter Jr . Cardi B also made an appearance at Lee's party. "Please save me from this weirdness.WENDY season 11 September 16th".

One hitch in the plan, however, was Trump sowing doubt about the trip to Denmark over the weekend, stating that he might confine his journey to Poland. "I thank her for that and look forward to rescheduling sometime in the future!" the United States president wrote.

However, no oil has yet been found in Greenlandic waters, and 80pc of the island is covered by an ice sheet that is up to 3km thick, which means exploration is only possible in coastal regions. Denmark declined, but has allowed the U.S.to maintain an Air Force base there for the past 70 years.

Greenland is believed to have substantial natural resources that have in the past been inaccessible to the extraction industry.

The US previously considered buying Greenland during the Truman Administration in the aftermath of World War II.

With the acquisition of Alaska from the Russian Empire in 1867, the USA established a strategic presence on the Arctic Ocean and the Bering Strait.
