The idea of the U.S. acquiring Greenland has captured the president’s imagination, according to people familiar with the discussions, who said he has repeatedly expressed interest in the notion.
Greenland's foreign minister said on Friday the world's biggest island is not for sale, commenting on media reports that U.S. President Donald Trump has privately discussed with advisers the idea of buying Greenland.
At a meeting last spring in the Oval Office, President Trump joked about buying Greenland for its resources, according to a person who was in attendance.
