U.S. President Donald Trump has said he is interested buying the territory Greenland. President Trump said any purchase the world's second largest island would be buying property. He said it was, "essentially a large real estate deal... They've got a lot valuable minerals". He added: "Denmark owns it. We're very good allies Denmark. We protect Denmark like we protect large portions the world. So the concept came and I said, 'Certainly I'd be [interested].' Strategically, it's interesting and we'd be interested but we'll talk to them a little bit." Mr Trump said buying Greenland was not his top priority the moment. He said: "It's not number one the burner, I can tell you that."
Greenland is an autonomous territory Denmark. The Prime Minister Denmark, Mette Frederiksen, told reporters that Greenland would not be sold. She said: "Greenland is not sale. Greenland is not Danish. Greenland belongs to Greenland. I strongly hope that this is not meant seriously." She added: "It's an absurd discussion, and Greenland's Prime Minister Kim Kielsen has course made it clear that Greenland is not sale. That's where the conversation ends." The USA has a history being interested Greenland. In 1946, President Harry Truman offered Denmark $100 million the island but Denmark said no. In 1867, President Andrew Johnson paid Russia $7.2 million Alaska.
