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. Please keep in mind that there are human beings living in Greenland with history and culture. It is not an empty wasteland for the taking. Just saying to all be respectful to all as you would expect and deserve the same.

  2. If he could I would…I’d rather he make it a part of the U.S.A and not for himself. Although then South Americans would boat their pregnant wife’s to Greenland to birth and so called American babies.

  3. New York Times are more interested in writing lies about our government then to follow up on real stories in America. They have become a fake paper just like CNN fake news.

  4. We'd be better served to sell Texas back to Mexico. There would be a lot of support for that with the Texas economy failing and refugee problems at the border.

  5. Is this a crazy idea? Of course it is, for two reasons:

    1. Donald is one of the worst real estate investors/managers in the nation (see his record on Atlantic City for further details).

    2. Greenland is not for sale.

    It seems as though on every second day which ends with a "y", Donald manages to stir up a new scandal which out-does his last one, or at least distracts everyone's attention from the 3 – 10 on-going scandals he has managed to bury himself and the nation in.

    It has become virtually impossible to keep up with.

  6. CONGRESS PEOPLE WHEN THEY GO TO WASHING DON'T HAVE A DORMITORY STYLE HOUSING FOR 400+ CONGRESS PEOPLE FOR SHORT PERIODS. (Sorry cap locks) So trump's hotel should be confiscated for back taxes and make it into a congressional dormitory.

  7. WE BOUGHT ALASKA FROM RUSSIA ,LOUISIANA FROM FRANCE,WHY NOT GREENLAND FROM DENMARK ;THEY CANNOT AFFORD 740M /YR ..OK CROOKED PRESS LET RUSSIA OR CHINA BUY IT AND PUT AN AIR BASE ON IT…TRUMP IS A GENIUS ,Main Street MEDIA ARE ALL MEAT HEADS

  8. This just in… They found Brown people in Greenland.
    Democrats one minute later: we need Greenland now!!! And they need to vote!!!

  9. smartest thing ever, at the right price we can buy it, totally chock full of rare earth metals and home to thule air base already. twice before we tried to buy it.

  10. Oh please… the DNC, not the people, will select their candidate. Nothing new here except how they manipulate the data. They learned a lot from 2016.

  11. Donald Trump Jr. for President 2024. His father, Donald Trump as Vice President. Or if the Don wants to be a semi-retired 'Consigliere', how about (fmr) Sheriff David Clark as VP? Or Ivanka Trump as VP. A brother and sister ticket.

  12. This is extraordinary… extraordinarily stupid. Fox news is extraordinarily stupid. Everyone believing these clowns are extraordinarily stupid. Some people are saying they cant read!

  13. Correction – Tlaib's grandmother does not Iive in Israel, she lives in the illegally occupied West Bank. There have been many UN resolutions dating back to 1967, and approved by the US, which affirm this. The entire "State" of Israel is ethnically cleansed, and funded by the US taxpayer at $12,000,000 per day

  14. So what would you do with China? Allow them to continue to steal intellectual property, ignore copyrights? And, offer absolutely nothing in return, with exception of cheap labor? They achieve that by totally ignoring any concept of human rights, with over 700 million citizens living in absolute, poverty. They have no rights, live in grotesque pollution, and have an abysmal quality of life. You Like that? They are pathetic. Hong Kong was great under British rule. Now, the citizens there know what is coming. Namely, taking all their freedom and bringing back re-education camps where literally 10s of millions of their own citizens were tortured and killed. Yeah, that happened. China has nothing to offer anyone. Everything they produce, can be made better somewhere else, unless of course, you like dog food that kills your dog, and toys that drug your children.

  15. Thats the irony al those right people admire Europeans everything organized becoz they white superior race.. no European countries are socialist countries special the Scandinavian country’s exactly they are better organized your shithol country destroyed en destroys al working class en civil rights.
    Don’t think one Greenlander want to be a us citizen..

  16. While eating his icecream, as it started to melt,all over his sticky fingers,a lightbulb went on, in his head!
    "We should buy Greenland!"
    He's a genius!🏌️‍♂️

  17. Congress should not have any more privileges than any other regular human being unless it has to do with their job!

  18. What about the left and the Demacrates racism? If you say they don't have it you're very blinded or you're lying!

  19. God I can't stand that woman another liberal plant on Fox a network that is transitioning from red to shades of blue to CNN wannabe. Don't believe me? Where's Tucker & WHY?

  20. Maybe do a direct swap. Denmark would get Florida, Mississippi, Kentucky and the Carolinas. Of course they would have to take the people too…….

  21. I mean have you guys played risk factions? Greenland is important for North America for the continental bonus. 😂

  22. somehow I don't think Greenlanders want American gun "rights" foisted on them, nor do they want to lose their public healthcare system

  23. Why not buying green land if she’s available on the market , China bought a lot of land from viet nam , Australia, under the term of 99. Year 🥵🥵🥵🥵🥵😡🥵

  24. Between playing golf, holding rallies and watching FOX how does he find time to govern? Let alone come up with a brilliant plan to buy Greenland. As climate change worsens and the ice melts we can drill for more oil! Greenland will be a tropical paradise for the rich as well. Golf courses and casinos everywhere.

  25. If Greenland wasn't held by Denmark and was a Latin or Middle Eastern country we would be toppling over the government and bombing their population into the Stone Age for its resources

  26. Right now, the U.S. has to purchase rare earth minerals from China because we are not mining them here. Greenland HAS rare earth minerals. China and Russia are also talking about trying to get their hands on Greenland. I say, YES! We need to beat China and Russia. This would be a great purchase!

  27. Trump should buy Greenland so all the liberals have a place to live and still have American freedoms to live their corrupt and depraved lives out sight of the normal people.

  28. israel is a foreign country they have the right to say who can and can not enter their country the USA has no right to say anything about it !!!!
    what is funny about buying greenland there acting like its a joke we could use another star on our flag

  29. There is NO alternative to voting for Trump….. He may slip-up tactically on occasion…he's being attacked daily in our Democrat/Media sponsored Civil War…..but America, despite this…has only one direction, that is; away from everything Democrats want. TRUMP2020 !!!

  30. This guy is completely out of line saying Israel should not ban any American politician. Excuse me but Israel is a sovereign nation and has every right to ban any one, including U.S. politicians who acts against Israel's independence, security or soveriegnty.

  31. The leaking of the NYT town hall shows that there are lots of silent Trumpers. People like Bill Maher who are tired of the purity tests of the liberals would either stay home or vote Trump in 2020.

  32. ?? Trump has to be the biggest moron on the planet, seriously… to have the nerve to say that they carry Greenland at a 700 million dollar a year loss, when America is over 22 TRILLION dollars in debt in 2019, and owes over 500 million in debt interest every year. He is the leader of a bankrupt country and while I get that he is a fraud artist and he loves to hear the sound of his own voice, but this is just toooo much, as he pretends that a bankrupt America has the money to 'buy' Greenland. It is not only insulting but absolutely ridiculous! Trumps is what the people of Greenland would call 10 pounds of stupid in a 5 pound bag! (And another reason why America has become the laughing stock of the world.)

  33. HAHAHA! Trump-Sluts are like play-doh! Easily manipulated by children. Byron York and Dagan McDonald! Two Corporate Media Trump-Sluts!! These clowns couln't tell you which way the wind is blowing! This is Corporate Media!

  34. Gee!… and why would someone want anything to do with Greenland? Maybe it has something to do with China going after huge reserves of iron ore that exist in Greenland.

  35. Actually Israel has the right to bar anybody no matter what their position is for entering their country Israel has the right to deny entry to the Queen of England he'll it has the right to deny entry to our president because of the fact that it is a sovereign Nation and it has borders that it is trying to protect the US also has the same right to do the same because it's a sovereign Nation unfortunately we don't have borders or trying to protect it seems like nobody has respect anymore for a free state

  36. Well didn't America buy Alaska for a song 'once upon a time'? How did that work out? Pretty good; and everyone said they were mad..

  37. Japan is interesting in purchasing Hawaii,Russia is interesting in purchasing Alaska,France is interesting in purchasing Central America, Mexico is interesting in purchasing California and Texas

  38. Can you imagine being a Danish citizen and all of a sudden your American. I love and support Trump but the Danes are right on this one.

  39. .Trump wants to buy Greenland and turn it into Orangeland. Trump is mentally unstable and so if Republican think he represents them, then like Lemings they will follow him over the cliff. Republicans if this is your leader, and the best you can put forward, then what does it say about the rest of you !
