Still, buying Greenland would be a good defense against global warming.
If the temperature gets too high in Florida, Trump could build a golf club in Greenland!

It's not "currently owned" - it's been part of the kingdom of Denmark since we discovered it a thousand years ago. And they own themselves.

When the US bought the Danish Virgin Islands, part of the price were to support Denmark’s claim to the whole island of Greenland, and help keeping it that way.

That just makes it a bit more absurd.

At one point in time Greenland was not covered in ice. Maybe a good thought but unfortunately not for sale.
