Trump Confirms: We Want to Buy Greenland

Remember that story last week about Donald Trump wanting to buy Greenland. Well, it's not going away. On Sunday, Trump confirmed he was "interested" in buying the country. But there's one problem -- Denmark says it's not for sale.

Trump told reporters on Sunday. "It's something we talked about. Denmark essentially owns it, we're very good allies with Denmark." Trump went on to call the possible purchase "essentially" a "large real estate deal." He added that "strategically it's interesting and we'd be interested, but we'll talk to them a little bit."

While Trump acknowledged that "first we have to find out whether or not they have any interest," he added that, "they're losing a tremendous amount of money, so we'll see what happens."

Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen shot down any such deal on Sunday, saying, "Greenland is not for sale. Greenland is not Danish. Greenland belongs to Greenland. I strongly hope that this is not meant seriously." (NBC News)
