President Donald Trump is postponing his meeting with the Danish government following comments that they will not be selling the territory Greenland to the United States.

That’s right, the United States president has publicly confirmed his interest in purchasing Greenland from Denmark. He’s brought it up in multiple instances, this time right before his scheduled trip to Denmark. He and the first lady were invited to visit Her Majesty Margrethe II, Queen of Denmark, where he was expected to meet with various officials and business leaders. That all changed in recent weeks.

As you could expect, he was met with criticism from multiple people, including Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, who called the entire notion “an absurd discussion.” This comment led to the President postponing the meeting, writing in a tweet, “based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time.”

The Prime Minister wasn’t the only Dane to provide their two cents. Rasmus Jarlov, Greenland’s Conservative People’s Party spokesman, took to Twitter and said, “Are parts of the U.S. for sale? Alaska? Please show more respect.” The head of the Danish Social-Liberal Party, Morten Østergaard, voiced his contempt over Twitter as well, saying it “shows why, more than ever, we should consider the EU countries our closest allies. The man is incalculable.”

Trump cannot purchase Greenland without going through Denmark, and the Danish government has made it clear they aren’t interested.

“Greenland is not for sale,” said Frederiksen to the Greenland newspaper Sermitsiaq. “Greenland is not Danish. Greenland belongs to Greenland.”
