Trump expresses interest in purchasing Greenland: report


>> [APPLAUSE] DAGEN: JOINING ME NOW THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER CHIEF POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR, BYRON YORK. HE’S ALWAYS ENTERTAINING BUT HE MIGHT NOT BE WRONG.>> YOU KNOW, HE IS THE MOST TRANSPARENT CAMPAIGNER IN HISTORY I THINK. HE JUST CAME OUT AND SAID LOOK, YOU’VE GOT TO VOTE FOR ME. IT WAS AN EXTRAORDINARY RALLY LAST NIGHT, HUGE AMOUNTS OF SHOW BUSINESS, AS YOU SAW THE PRESIDENT LOVES TO HANDICAP THE DEMOCRATIC FIELD. HE LIKES THE TURMOIL WE’RE SEE ING IN THE DEMOCRATIC FIELD WITH ELIZABETH WARREN COMING UP AND BERNIE SANDERS COMING DOWN. NO ACCIDENT THAT HE DID IT IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. THE PRESIDENT IS OBVIOUSLY FOCUSING ON THE STATES THAT HE L NEED IN THE GENERAL ELECTION. HE KICKED OFF HIS ENTIRE RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGN IN FLORIDA. HE WAS MOST RECENTLY IN PENNSYLVANIA. BOTH OF THOSE HE WON. HE LOST NEW HAMPSHIRE VERY NARROWLY BY 2,736 VOTES, REALLY REALLY TIGHT. THAT’S A STATE HE HOPES HE CAN PICK UP NEXT TIME. DAGEN: WHAT ABOUT HIS MESSAGING? BECAUSE AGAIN, IN THE MESSAGE AND I’M PARAPHRASEING BUT ON CHINA WE’RE GOING TO WIN THIS. IT’S GOING TO BE GREAT FOR AMERICA. ITS BEEN GREAT SO FAR. THE CONSUMERS AREN’T FEELING IT ALTHOUGH SOME CONSUMER PRICES HAVE GONE UP. OVERALL CONSUMER PRICES HAVE GONE UP IN THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS. IT IS IMPORTERS IN THE U.S. PAYING THESE TARIFFS INTO THE TREASURY DEPARTMENT, HOW THEY’RE SPREAD ACROSS THE SUPPLY CHAIN IS A DIFFERENT STORY BUT NEVERTHELESS, DON’T WORRY ABOUT THAT. DON’T WORRY ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE STOCK MARKET. EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE GRAVY. HOW DOES THAT WORK?>> WELL A LARGE PART OF THE PRESIDENT’S SPEECH LAST NIGHT WAS A REBUTTAL TO ALL THE RECESSION TALK THAT WE’VE BEEN HEARING LATELY, AND HE DOES HAVE A CASE TO MAKE FOR THAT, BUT THE PRESIDENT KNOWS VERY WELL THAT HE IS ON A TIGHT ROPE, AS FAR AS TRADE IS CONCERNED, AND ESPECIALLY WITH CHINA. HE’S SAID THAT TO PEOPLE. IT HAS TO WORK. HE UNDERSTANDS THAT HE STILL HAS THE SUPPORT OF FARMERS ON THIS ISSUE. WE’VE SEEN A NUMBER OF POLLS WHERE FARMERS THINK THAT ULTIMATELY THIS IS GOING TO WORK OUT FOR THEM AND THEY SUPPORT WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS DOING AND ESSENTIALLY BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT DID IT. THEY FELT THAT SOMEBODY HAD TO STAND UP TO CHINA. IT WAS NOT GOING TO BE EASY. NOT GOING TO BE NEAT, BUT SOMEBODY HAD TO DO IT. ON THE OTHER HAND, GO FORWARD A YEAR. IF THERE’S STILL NO CHINA DEAL, THERE’S STILL NOTHING THERE, I MEAN, THIS COULD HURT HIM. THAT’S WHY HE KNOWS HE’S ON A TIGHT ROPE IF YOU CAN FALL OFF IT. DAGEN: WELL I SAID THAT IT WAS LIKE A COUPLE MONTHS AGO AS LONG AS IT WAS THE STATUS QUO, BUT THEN HE ANNOUNCED THIS NEW TARIFF ON THE $300 BILLION BECAUSE THEY START GOING INTO EFFECT SEPTEMBER 1, SO AGAIN, THERE IS THE FIGHT CONTINUES WITH CHINA, SO THERE DOESN’T SEEM TO BE A QUIET ON THAT FRONT AT THIS POINT. I WANT TO MOVE ON TO ISRAEL OVERNIGHT APPROVING THE REQUEST TO VISIT THE WEST BANK ON HUMANITARIAN GROUNDS TO VISIT HER GRANDMOTHER. THIS COMING AFTER THE COUNTRY ORIGINALLY BARRED HER FROM ENTERING. THE CONGRESSWOMAN AGREEING TO CONDITIONS IN A STATEMENT SHE SAID THIS. THIS COULD BE MY LAST OPPORTUNITY TO SEE HER. I RESPECT ANY RESTRICTIONS AND I WILL NOT PROMOTE ANY BOYCOTTS AGAINST ISRAEL DURING MY VISIT. PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU FIRST BANNING TLAIB AND CONGRESSWOMAN ILLHAM OMAR DUE TO THEIR SUPPORT OF THE ANTI-ISRAEL BOYCOTT MOVEMENT. BYRON WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THIS DEVELOPMENT?>> WELL FIRST OF ALL THE ORIGINAL TRIP THAT TLAIB WANTED TO TAKE WAS BILLED BY HER OFFICE AS A VISIT TO PALESTINE, NOT TO ISRAEL. THIS IS SOMETHING THE ISRAELIS DID NOT LIKE TO HEAR AND THEY HAVE PASSED THE ISRAELIS DID PASS A LAW IN 2017 ALLOWING THEM TO BAR ENTRY FROM PROMOTESERS OF THE BDS MOVEMENT SO WHAT BASICALLY, WHAT SHE DID WHO DOES HAVE FAMILY IN ISRAEL IS THAT THEY BASICALLY ALLOWED HER TO ENTER ESSENTIALLY ON HUMANITARIAN GROUNDS AND SHE AGREED NOT TO PROMOTE BDS WHILE SHE WAS THERE. THERE ARE REALLY TWO SIDES TO THIS STORY. I MEAN, THE PEOPLE WHO SAY ISRAEL SHOULD NOT BE IN THE BUSINESS OF THE BARRING U.S. MEMBERS OF CONGRESS FROM VISITING, I THINK THAT’S A VERY LEGITIMATE POINT. ON THE OTHER HAND THEY DID MAKE THIS LAW BECAUSE THEY SIMPLY DO NOT WANT PEOPLE TO COME IN AND PROMOTE BDS. YOU COULD REALLY ARGUE IT BOTH WAYS ON THIS. DAGEN: BDS, BOYCOTT, DIVESTMENT AND SANCTIONS. AND YOUR TAKE ON PRESIDENT TRUMP WANTS TO BUY GREENLAND.>> IT’S FUNNY. EVERYBODY IS JOKING, FINE, BUT THERE IS A NON-CRAZY CASE FOR THIS. I MEAN, GREENLAND HAS IMPORTANT GEOSTRATEGIC MEANING FOR US. WE HAVE AN AIR BASE UP THERE, A VERY LARGE AIR BASE, WAY ABOVE THE ARCTIC CIRCLE. IT’S A BIG PART OF OUR EARLY WARNING MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM. IN 1946 PRESIDENT HARRY TRUE MAN ACTUALLY OFFERED TO BUY GREEN LAND FROM DENMARK WHICH CONTROLS IT THE OFFER WAS $100 MILLION. DENMARK TURNED IT DOWN, DON’T SEE IT HAPPENING TODAY. IT’S KIND OF AN ODD 19TH CENTURY IDEA, THE IDEA THAT YOU WOULD JUST GO BUY SOMETHING BIG LIKE THIS. ON THE OTHER HAND THERE ARE ACTUAL STRATEGIC REASONS TO WANT TO DO IT. DAGEN: I WANT TO MOVE ON TO ONE MORE THING BECAUSE I FOLLOW YOU CLOSELY ON TWITTER, YOU GENIUS, AND YOU’VE BEEN TWEETING ABOUT THIS BYRON. NEW YORK TIMES CHIEF REPORTEDLY TELLING A TOWN HALL EARLIER THIS WEEK THAT THE NEWSPAPERS COVERAGE IS PIVOTING TO ALLEGED RACISM FROM THE PRESIDENT AFTER THE RUSSIA COLLUSION STORY FELL APART. THIS IS ACCORDING TO TRANSCRIPTS GIVEN TO SLATE MAGAZINE. BYRON YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS?>> REALLY AN EXTRAORDINARY STORY. THERE WAS BASICALLY AN EMPLOYEE TOWN HALL ON MONDAY AT THE NEW YORK TIMES, AND DEAN BAQUET, THE EXECUTIVE EDITOR SAID LOOK, WE FOCUSED ENTIRELY ON THE TRUMP RUSSIA MATTER FOR THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF THE PRESIDENT’S TIME IN OFFICE, WE “BUILT OUR NEWS ROOM AROUND THAT STORY” AND THEN CAME THE MUELLER REPORT AND SOME OF OUR READERS WERE ANGUISHED AND SAID THAT GOSH, ROBERT MUELLER IS NOT GOING TO GET THE JOB DONE , SO NOW, WE HAVE A NEW VISION FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS, AND THAT IS TO COVER RACISM AND THE PRESIDENT’S RACISM AND THE PRESIDENT’S SUPPORTER’S RACISM. THIS IS GOING TO BE OUR BIG BIG STORY. IT WAS REALLY AN EXTRAORDINARILY OPEN WAY TO SAY WHAT A NUMBER OF PEOPLE HAVE ACTUALLY SUSPECTED OBSERVING THE TIMES FROM THE OUTSIDE. DAGEN: AND I KNOW THIS IS A SMALL THING, BUT DALE EARNHARDT JR. , HE’S PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST WELL KNOWN SPORTS FIGURES IN THE COUNTRY, AND HIS FAMILY WAS IN A PLANE CRASH YESTERDAY, AND I WENT LOOKING FOR ANY UPDATES ON THAT STORY. I COULDN’T FIND IT. I WAS SCROLLING THROUGH THE FRONT PAGE OF THE WEBSITE. I COULDN’T EVEN FIND A MENTION OF IT. IT’S NOT ON THE FRONT PAGE TODAY BASED ON MY FIRST LOOK AND AGAIN IT’S LIKE ARE YOU A NATIONAL NEWSPAPER OR JUST THE ANTI-TRUMP NEWSPAPER?>> THE TIMES FAMOUSLY DID NOT RECOGNIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF THE DEATH OF DALE EARNHARDT SENIOR, THE ACTUAL SUPER STAR OF STOCK CAR RACING, THE TIMES WAS CRITICIZED FOR NOT REALIZING

  1. If you don't think the rabid anti-Semite and anti-American islamist subversive will refrain from anti-Israel hate and mischief or pass up propaganda oportunities on her visit to Israel I have a bridge that I'd like to sell to you. Greenland's strategic importance to our country is obvious your snarkey attitudes and the remark about the 19th century are contemptible

  2. We should buy Greenland. You know China will do it if we don't. And it is the last huge land area that could reasonably be purchased.

  3. World knows n Denmark knows Russia made mistakes n at the time, Ruskies did not know about natural resources like today's, so it would be essentially impossible for the US to buy Denmark, unless invaded by Russia or Chinse money is about to take over Greenland or buy out majority Greenland land is LIKE buying Greenland without officially buying n that case Denmark SHOULD SELL TO USA is prudent choice indeed!

  4. The play of racism is so divisive and anti American that this paper should cease to exist. The harm that they are causing our country is abhorrent! This crap needs to stop, people will buy good news, not only the bad….

  5. Trump should first disestablish NATO and then takeover Greenland by force after he consolidates control over Greenland he should then proceed to ethnically cleanse Greenland of all of the Inuit people living there by killing them all off using chemical weapons and then leaving none but the pure European people to live in Greenland lastly he should repopulate Greenland by offering free US citizenship to anybody and everybody of pure European extraction from both Europe and abroad. While this is all transpiring Trump should issue an executive order baring any and all foreign and domestic news outlets from ever reporting on any and all active war zones in which the US is actively involved in.

  6. We would rather give Greenland for free to China than sell to
    Dumbtrump🤦‍♀️🐶
    His stupidity has reached a new low, again.

  7. Doesn’t Germany own Denmark? Or the World Bank? It would seem prudent for whom ever they are indebted to take possession of assets to sell!!!

  8. Hold on, Harry Truman was the first U.S. president who thought buying greenland was a good Idea, & he actually offered $100,000,000?
    Wasn't Harry a Democrat? Hell, it must be a good idea then.

  9. Turmoil in Democratic Party is self inflicted by the Democrip losers themselves including you cry babies on Foxnews. Yes President Trump knows what is going on despite what you liberals are doing to talk down the economy. Foxnews is on a tightrope of mediocrity and pathetic lameness.

  10. It's finally happened. Trump's brain is in absentia with dementia. He is on fantasy island dreaming of changing "Greenland" to "Trumpland".

  11. Fake News Tariffs are not resulting in Price Inflation- Nonsense according to the woman we should not challenge China we should go back to being the stupid country with corrupt Biden

  12. Seems nobody can actually point to when Trump made this so called statement, no more than another fake story made up by the media relying on “ in named sources”. They just can’t seem to help themselves when it comes to printing utter garbage.

  13. Tell us why Trump suggested buying Green Land. Also tell us why other countries have expressed interest in buying Greenland. Do some real reporting and give use real information and not your small minded opinions.

  14. Pres Trump is on a mission from God who establishes kings and removes them. Pres Trump will win another term because he is in God's hand. The world super power position is also in God's hand. It's settled in Daniel 2:21 so sleepy Biden, crooked Hillary, disreputable John Kerry and any Democrats cannot win even with voters' fraud thrown in because God has the final say. According to Daniel 2:21​, “It is He (=God) who changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and establishes kings. He gives wisdom to the wise And [greater] knowledge to those who have understanding!'"

    I know Pres Trump has the backing of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Isaiah 45:1) and He doesn't plan a one-term presidency for Trump unless Trump's policies work against the nation of Israel. If God is for Pres Trump, who can be against him? Romans 8:31 says "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?" Personally, I think Pres Trump will be the last President in America.

    The more the Democrats pinned blames on the President, the more the President achieves greatness in the economy, jobs, markets, safety & security, $ strength, overall stability, etc. Unlike past presidents, especially the last president, President Trump remains a superb performer in reality. Romans 8:28 is working for President Trump! My Bible says that God is for Pres Trump who can be against him (Romans 8:31). It means the people against him will not prevail if God is for him. Because who can overcome God? There is not a person on this planet that can defeat God.

    BIBLE REFERENCE:
    Romans 8:28 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 28 And we know that [a]God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

    Footnotes: [a] Romans 8:28 One early ms reads all things work together for good

  15. What's the matter the Jihad Squad is going to sit there and whine and cry and complain about is real and then want to go there Israel should never have even considered

  16. The idea that Denmark would sell 50,000 citizens to the US is completely insane. This is the definitive proof that Trump has gone crazy.

  17. No you can't argue with both denying access for Congress if they're going to be Islamic Jihad endorsers there is no argument there I don't care who it is whether it's congresswoman but the president of the United States in dorsing talk about hate towards Israel or any other country

  18. He would have won New Hampshire except the cheaters descended upon our state, claimed residency and voted in our election…same for Connecticut….Massachusetts is and has always been a very crooked and left-leaning state

  19. those females are spies i know they would love to go there so they can get inside info and one has family there yet they want to see israel fall. and y not china bought walmart and is buing up the islands and businesses so …..

  20. Typical American thinks everything is for sale and everyone wants to be American. I don't see the Inuit in Greenland wanting to become part of the USA with the Americans record of treating Indigenous people.

  21. Get justice for Tucker Carlsen, Fox news fires Tucker for sharing thoughts on white supremacy! Freedom of speech denied!

  22. why do you not see more stories on the painting of ex- president Bill Clinton in dress and red heels in the pedophile's house ???

  23. It would be a good move on our part, 1st off it holds a lot of fresh water, 2nd besides Iceland it's strategic, only approach to north America from the Atlanta

  24. thee audacity! 🙄 why would they give this vid THAT label, but only talk about "THAT issue" for like 3 seconds? … (if that)

  25. Why does this fox girl look like she has a mentos stuck in her mouth and is trying to not let it fall off?? Im just saying. Its my opinion!

  26. There is an idea of for importers in this country, using incoterm for your goods where the exporter pays the duties

  27. He may have to pay money for Greenland, I will give him Australia for free in fact it's his done deal Australia is his all the best to him , put up the American flag I'm have a wild turkey.

  28. Interesting idea. Denmark declined.

    BUT :
    Will Denmark be able to defend alone Greenland against China or Russia for instance ?

  29. This is again a masterpiece of manipulation.
    Ruin the EU make Denmark bankrupt and the EU and buy cheap Greenland.
    This is Manhattan type of property business.

  30. They laughed at Seward for buying Alaska… with similarly awesome resources.

    (Know your history, Rachel Maddow)

  31. ท้อง ลำไส้เล็กและใหญ่ รู้สึกว่ามีแค่ชั้นไขมัน หนังหุ้ม เวลาไอ ต้องคอยจับหน้าท้องไว้ รู้สึกได้เลยครับ ว่านิ่มบางฯ

  32. The U.S. is hopelessly in debt and the unstable non-genius wants to go island shopping. Perhaps he'll declare an island emergency so he can misappropriate funding to buy Greenland.

  33. Buy Greenland, move congress there, all the hot air will melt the ice , sell the water to California at a profit .

  34. What an utter embarrassing clown this president is. As his dementia is kicking in, things he says keep getting more insane. Zombies who disagree with me, get your brains working!

  35. If America bought Greenland within 20 years whites would be a minority there as the US government and private organizations go into Haiti and Africa offering people free houses, business loans, free education etc. to re-settle them there. Sound crazy? They already did it with Minnesota starting about 20 years ago it was proclaimed that Minnesota was "too white" and they went into the third world to find refugees to settle there. At one point the US government spent several million dollars teaching an African tribe how to use a door knob! They seemingly have unlimited amounts of money to fund their white replacement schemes but when Americans ask them to repair the crumbling roads or replace the lead pipes we are suddenly told the government is broke!

    There was an article online some years ago about the door knob incident but white nationalists were posting it so seems removed from google search and nowhere to be found. Minnesota now has the highest percentage of refugees which you can still look up on google, although a lot of the how and why seems to be censored now days.

  36. With all the millions my friend Putin President of Russian Federation gave to this Trump thru your NRA she be able to buy this Greenland Da?? Yes?? 🇷🇺😀😁😀🇷🇺

  37. Good place for illegal invaders while waiting for their asylum hearings. Leftists won't be able to complain since they will still be in the U.S. and the invaders can't "get lost" in the mainland and fail to show up for their hearing as they do now. When the illegals are denied asylum, they can immediately be sent back to where they belong. Of course, illegals can also be given the opportunity to go back to their home country and be immediately deported if they do not want to wait in Greenland for their hearing. Tremendous idea!
