    “I hope it’s a joke, because it’s a terrible and grotesque thought”
    Martin Lidegaard, chairman of Denmark’s Foreign Policy Committee

    “It must be an April Fool’s Day joke … but totally out of season,”
    Lars Lokke Rasmussen, former prime minister of Denmark and the leader of the opposition

    Obviously Trump doesnt know the difference between real estate and diplomacy...

    At the right price it would be brilliant.
    Its highly strategic especially in light of whatever Putin is up to ip in the artic.
    Its RICH in natural resources. That makes it on a par with both the purchase of Alaska and the Louisianna Purchase.
    A Denmark is developing some money problems of late.
    Great idea really. Will it happen ? Only if Denmark is really in a bind (Brexit may be the straw to break that camel's back) so who knows
    But floating the idea now puts the seed of an answer in the minds of the average Dane.
    Mineral rights alone would pay for it.
    Overall, brilliant.
