2019.08.21 Buying Greenland, dissing Denmark
Trump floated the idea of buying Greenland. Denmark said, "it's not for sale". And Trump cancelled a visit to Denmark, saying that basically freed up some time on his schedule. The #NeverTrumpers all raged that this was disrespectful to an ally and assumed the worst of Trump. The problem is that we don't know the context, and the FakeNews never did their jobs to try to find out. I can believe Trump was just having a hissy about being rebuffed... but it seems at least as likely that NYT/CNN/WaPo were going off half-cocked, again, and there might be more to the story (like "Hands up, don't shoot"). My left of center friends all raged at what a dumb idea it was, because CNN/NYT/WaPo told them so... not one of them was informed that Russia and China had both made plays for bases there in the past, and that would make a new Cuban Missile crisis on a much bigger scale. Or that it has many great natural resources that make it valuable, and under utilized.
