US President Donald Trump has cancelled a state visit to Denmark after the nation's prime minister said Greenland was not for sale to the US.

The president was scheduled to visit on 2 September, at the invitation of Denmark's Queen Margrethe II.

Then last week Mr Trump suggested the US was interested in buying Greenland, an autonomous Danish territory.

Danish PM Mette Frederiksen described the suggestion as "absurd" and said she hoped Mr Trump was not being serious.

Ms Frederiksen is due to give a statement later on Wednesday.

If Denmark refuses to sell Greenland, then the US will bring "democracy" and "freedom" to Greenland!

The next time he will say he wants to buy China. Anythings can happen in Trump’s mind. Today he flip, tomorrow he flop.

Hey Trump!
I want to buy Alaska with all the mineral (oil) rights.
You are going to get a VERY GOOD DEAL which you cannot decline.
Best Regards from Putin.





Even for Trump's standard, I thought he was joking, but it seems he was serious.
What an UNSTABLE MORON!

America has become an extremely rude country. Inviting yourself is rude enough. Cancelling two weeks prior... Low class country.
