Mocked for Greenland, Trump cancels Denmark trip

U.S. President Trump has cancelled his trip to Denmark, after the country's prime minister said the idea of selling Greenland was absurd.

Trump confirmed on Sunday (August 18) that he had recently discussed the idea of buying the world's largest island.

And while he promised on Twitter not to build a Trump tower on the Arctic Island, the proposal's been met with disbelief by some.

A former Danish prime minister said, "It must be an April Fool's Day joke." The current PM said, "Greenland is not for sale [...] I strongly hope that this is not meant seriously." The U.S. military has rights over an air base in the northern part of the autonomous territory.

Trump told reporters the purchase is a strategically interesting concept, but not an immediate priority.

On Tuesday (August 20), he said based on Denmark's refusal to discuss the sale, "I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time."
