REPORT: President Trump Considering Historic Purchase of Greenland

Donald Trump may set his legacy as an all-time great President in stone through acquiring one the world’s biggest islands for the United States.

President Donald Trump may soon enough cement his legacy as a historic American President through adding the island of Greenland as a United States territory.

Reporting from the Wall Street Journal Thursday indicates the President is highly interested in acquiring the island. Denmark currently administers the island, which is geographically a part of the North American continent.

The President is said to have been repeatedly suggesting the prospect to his advisors. The United States already has a historic relationship with the island, which houses a major U.S Air Force base. The island, located between Europe and North America in the Arctic Sea, has abundant natural resources and a prime strategic location.

President Trump is slated to visit Denmark next month, and it’s possible real discussions about the idea could come to fruition then.

A purchase of Denmark wouldn’t be entirely unlike President Andrew Johnson’s historic Alaska Purchase from Russia in 1867.

Seeing as Alaska has since become a successful, strategically important, and economically productive American state despite being distant from the American mainland, it’s very possible an integration of Greenland into the United States could be similarly successful.

Greenland is primarily populated by Inuit peoples, who have adapted to life in the island’s harsh arctic climate over many centuries. The territory has had a somewhat tenuous relationship with the Danish government recently, and polling indicates that a majority of Greenlandic people (64%) favor independence.

Joining the United States as a territory could represent a way for the people of Greenland to change their political status without taking the risks of declaring independence as a fully sovereign and new country. The island has a population of approximately 56,000, and is the least densely populated territory on Earth.

Entering the U.S. would provide Greenland’s residents with access to the world’s wealthiest national economic market, and probably provide them a measure of self-government greater than what Denmark can offer.

Many Americans will watch closely to see if President Trump’s potential real estate deal of a lifetime comes to pass.

Michael Bloomberg SLAMMED in Dem Debate Pile-On

The billionaire was targeted by the Democratic primary field.

Published

on

Michael Bloomberg was a target for the Democratic Primary field during his first debate stage appearance on Wednesday, being roundly criticized by several of the other five Democratic candidates participating.

The debate, held in Las Vegas days before the Nevada caucuses, differed from previous events on account of the smaller number of candidates.

Bloomberg has skyrocketed to a competitive second place in most polling of the Democratic primary, seeming to siphon most of Joe Biden’s support and staking out a claim as the Democrat to take on Bernie Sanders. The New York billionaire, who has not appeared on the ballot in the first two primary states, is aiming for a string of Super Tuesday victories.

Elizabeth Warren may have landed the most concrete blow of the night on the record-setting campaign spender, calling out Bloomberg for a history of insensitive remarks targeting women. She also went on to question Bloomberg about reports of him forcing women to sign non-disclosure agreements after sexually harassing them.

It’s probably safe to say that Bloomberg was the biggest loser of the night. The debate represented the first opportunity for the billionaire to face criticism from other Democrats, and he generally failed to answer the ire of the primary field with anything too meaningful.

Bloomberg’s biggest moment of the night may have been when he called out Sanders for owning three homes, likening him to the billionaires the democratic socialist frequently criticizes.

Sanders hit Bloomberg on his controversial record of instituting ‘Stop and Frisk’ policing practices as mayor of New York City, claiming that the program was discriminatory against Black and Latino people.

Even Buttigieg, a candidate who is well-funded by billionaire campaign donors, hit Bloomberg for his blatant attempt to buy the Democratic nomination. The somewhat more rancorous tone of the debate made previous walk-in-the-park debates appear to be a snoozefest.

Considering he at least implicitly is the frontrunner for the nomination, it’s probably safe to say Bernie Sanders exited the debate as the de facto winner. Sanders holds a resounding lead in polling for the upcoming Nevada caucuses, and a win coupled with a blow to Bloomberg’s campaign could give him the momentum required for a dominant Super Tuesday performance.
