    The prime minister of Denmark and several other politicians were not so amused after a report claimed US President Donald Trump has expressed interest in acquiring Greenland as a US territory.

    No Grabbing Greenland

    Ahead of his first trip to Denmark in early September, Trump was the subject of many Danish politicians’ tweets after a Thursday Wall Street Journal article claimed the “US leader asked his White House counsel to look into the idea” of purchasing Greenland.

    Former Denmark Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen was quick to check the US president and dismiss the idea of ever putting the island up for sale.

    Much to the liking of over 20,000 Twitter users, the self-ruling island’s ministry of foreign affairs issued a tweet on Friday shading Trump’s interests, saying, “We’re open for business, not for sale.”
