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.”
