There’s been a lot of hubbub over the news reports last week that the Trump administration talked about purchasing the island of Greenland. Denmark came out and said that Greenland is not for sale and the media mocked Trump for it. Trump acknowledged it, though, to reporters and said strategically it is of interest even though it’s not on the front burner:
President Trump on reports he discussed the US potentially buying Greenland: “Strategically it's interesting and we'd be interested, but we'll talk to them a little bit. It's not number one on the burner, I can tell you that." https://t.co/HGNYbRmtvG pic.twitter.com/BiWuOLdXDi

When I heard the news I thought the same, that because Greenland sits so far north that it would likely be a great place for missile defense. If it were possible to purchase the island we’d probably be foolish not to consider it.
There was a lot on social media about this, with people making jokes about Trump putting a big hotel on Greenland’s coast. Well fast forward to just a few minutes ago, and Trump decided to troll his critics by tweeting one of the joke photos going around and saying that he’d never to that to Greenland:

LOL! Nice trolling. Love it. Glad to see Trump’s sense of humor is intact.
UPDATE: From the creator of the image…
probably should have spent more than 10 min on that photoshop
