I can just hear the Democrats pissing and moaning now about President Trump’s effort to purchase Greenland from Denmark.
They will say it’s a huge waste of money but what they will be fighting for is making the United States dependent on the ChiComs.
I know people point to the nearly one trillion in debt they hold of ours, but there are two much more important reasons we need to try to make this move.
Currently, we ha have limited access to the Arctic. With Greenland, we have a wide-open area to prevent a foreign attack from China and Russia via the Arctic.
The second reason is rare Earth minerals.
Currently, we are at China’s mercy for these rare minerals but Greenland has them in abundance.
Larry Kudlow, the top White House economic adviser, confirmed Sunday that President Donald Trump is exploring the possibility of purchasing Greenland.
During an interview with “Fox News Sunday” with guest host Dana Perino, Kudlow explained that Trump’s interest in the massive arctic island stems from the strategic value Greenland would provide for U.S. national security and economic interests.
“Look, it’s an interesting story. It’s developing. We’re looking at it. We don’t know,” Kudlow said.
“Denmark owns Greenland. Denmark is an ally. Greenland is a strategic place up there and they’ve got a lot of valuable minerals,” he explained. “I don’t want to predict it now. I’m just saying the president, who knows a thing or two about buying real estate, wants to take a look at a potential Greenland purchase.”
Kudlow’s confirmation comes days after the Wall Street Journal first reported Trump’s interest in acquiring Greenland, a mostly-autonomous Danish territory and the largest island in the world.
In response, Greenland foreign minister Ane Lone Bagger told Reuters, “We are open for business, but we’re not for sale.”
