Trump likens buying Greenland to 'a large real estate deal'

"It's not number one on the burner, I can tell you that", the president said.

Mr Trump said buying Greenland from Denmark is of interest to his administration because of the strategic benefits for the US.

"There is no recession in sight", White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Fox News Sunday.

The president called the supporter about the moment and left a voicemail during his Thursday night flight on Air Force One back to New Jersey, where he is spending the week at his golf club, the official said.

"It's hurting Denmark very badly, because they're losing nearly 700 million dollars (£577 million) a year carrying it".

Additionally, Greenland's Ministry of Foreign Affairs last week said in a statement that the country was not interested in any acquisition talks.

"It is flat, not for - bad reasons, but for good ones", he said. "It just seemed to be such a weird and cavalier way to talk about what is really a phenomenal and critically important alliance strategically".

Trump acknowledged that "the concept came up" and he believed the "strategically interesting"-part, but added that the issue was not a priority".

"There is clearly no strategy for dealing with the trade war in a way that will lead to results for American farmers, or American consumers", he said. Joe Manchin III, W.Va., said on CBS' "Face the Nation" that "changes are happening" in Greenland as a result of climate change, "and the people up there understand it and they're trying to adjust to it".

Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon about negotiating trade deals with China, writing the country is "Poised for big growth after trade deals are completed".

President Trump says he's exploring options on possibly buying Greenland. The US Thule Air Base is located in the northern part of the island.

It has been a ballistic missile early-warning and space surveillance site since 1961.

It is unclear how much the USA would offer for it, but Trump is not the American leader who has looked into buying the island.

Frederiksen, who became prime minister June 27, was on a planned two-day trip to Greenland before traveling to nearby Iceland for a meeting of the Nordic prime ministers.

But the idea has gotten a chilly reception both in Greenland and in the Danish capital, Copenhagen.

During a visit to Greenland to meet Premier Kim Kielsen, Frederiksen told the Sermitsiaq newspaper she hopes Trump's suggestion was not "seriously meant". "Greenland is Greenlandic", Frederiksen told the Associated Press. Though President Harry Truman dodged questions about his pursuit of control in the region, the United States allegedly tried to buy Greenland in 1946. Let's leave it there.
