Well, that’s a relief:
Secretary of State Antony Blinken confirmed Thursday that the US is not pursuing the purchase of the Greenland after former President Donald Trump floated the possibility in 2019.
During a press conference in Greenland, Blinken said it was “correct” when a reporter asked if the US is not seeking to buy Greenland, an autonomous Danish territory, and that his visit to the island was to strengthen diplomatic relations with “our Arctic partners, Greenland and Denmark.”
Foreign Minister Pele Broberg echoed the sentiment, saying Blinken’s visit is “not considered a real estate deal.”
And thus ends another bizarre legacy of the 4th Reich. Remember that time that Prznint Art of the Deal floated selling Puerto Rico? Good times, good times.
