President Trump has canceled his trip to Denmark after Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen refused to sell Greenland to the U.S.
He thanked her for being direct while the trip saved effort and expenses for both countries.
President Trump says he will reschedule the meeting for a future date.
On Monday he tweeted a photoshopped image of the Trump Tower looming over a small village in Greenland.
Trump wrote, “I promise not to do this to Greenland!”
Trump acknowledged Sunday that he is “strategically” interested in such a deal, but said it’s not a priority of his administration. He told reporters, “It’s not No. 1 on the burner.”
Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen has said Greenland is not for sale and Trump’s idea of buying it is “an absurd discussion.”
