Kudlow White House ‘looking at’ Greenland purchase

Ms Frederiksen, who was visiting the world's largest island to meet premier Kim Kielsen, said: "Greenland is not Danish".

Trump's idea of buying the world's largest island caused widespread global hilarity, but at the same time provoked criticism in Denmark and Greenland.

"Essentially, it's a large real estate deal".

"Strategically it's interesting and we'd be interested, but we'll talk to (Denmark) a little bit", he told reporters, adding that he viewed it as a "large real estate deal".

Speaking to reporters, Mr Trump confirmed reports that first appeared on Thursday in The Wall Street Journal that he had asked administration officials to look into the possibility of purchasing the self-governing Danish territory.

Despite the claimed losses, Greenland has continuously been supported by Denmark and has strictly denied the sale of their territory. Though President Harry Truman dodged questions about his pursuit of control in the region, the United States allegedly tried to buy Greenland in 1946.

Trump is not the first US president to propose buying Greenland.

Leaders from both Greenland and Denmark have scoffed at the idea of a US purchase of the territory.

"I strongly hope that this is not meant seriously", she said. In the post, the account advertised everything the island had to offer and mentioned that it is open for business, but it is definitely not for sale.

Frederiksen, who became prime minister on June 27, was on a planned two-day trip to Greenland before traveling to nearby Iceland for a meeting of Nordic prime ministers.

"Strategically, it's interesting. And, we'd be interested".

Jon Rahbek-Clemmensen, assistant professor at the Royal Danish Defense College, reports that United States authorities have shown increasing interest in Greenland in recent years, due to how strategically important the country's location is.

Trump is scheduled to visit Denmark in two weeks, although he said Sunday that his visit is not related to his interest in Greenland. "Nielsen said it quite clear: Greenland will not be sold". The U.S. military has operated for decades from Thule Air Base in Greenland.

With melting ice making the region more accessible, the United States has been firm in trying to counter any moves by Russian Federation and China in the Arctic.

"I am sure a majority of Greenland believes it is better to have a relation to Denmark than the United States, in the long term", a Danish member of Parliament from Greenland told Reuters.

Such American forces have operated for decades from Thule Air Base in Greenland, the northern-most U.S. base which is part of a global network of radars and sensors for missile warnings and space surveillance.
