Donald Trump has called off his planned trip to Denmark after its prime minister said the Danish territory of Greenland is not for sale, the White House said on Tuesday.
Trump tweeted, "Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen's comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time. The Prime Minister was able to save a great deal of expense and effort for both the United States and Denmark by being so direct. I thank her for that and look forward to rescheduling sometime in the future!"
The invitation for the official state visit came from the Queen of Denmark. Trump's cancellation of the trip was confirmed by the White House deputy press secretary. (NBC News)
