Donald Trump is interested in buying Greenland. He said it would be, "a large real estate deal". He added: "They've got a lot of valuable minerals." Mr Trump said: "Certainly I'd be [interested].' He said buying Greenland was not his top priority. 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 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. In 1946, the USA offered Denmark $100 million for the island but Denmark said no.
