Donald Trump is interested in buying Greenland. He said it would be like buying property and was, "a large real estate deal". He added: "They've got a lot of valuable minerals." Mr Trump said: "Denmark owns it....We protect Denmark....So the concept came up and I said, 'Certainly I'd be [interested].' He said buying Greenland was not his top priority at the moment. He said: "It's not number one on the burner."

Greenland is a territory of Denmark. Denmark's leader said: "Greenland is not for sale. Greenland is not Danish. Greenland belongs to Greenland. I strongly hope that this is not meant seriously." Greenland's leader also made it clear that Greenland is not for sale. The USA has been interested in Greenland before. In 1946, President Harry Truman offered Denmark $100 million for the island but Denmark said no.
