Authorities and residents in Greenland have branded President Donald Trump's talk of buying the island "insulting" but have welcomed the global attention it has brought to a nation keen to establish its autonomy from Denmark.
A group of Flemish nationalist politicians on Thursday joked that President Trump could buy a southern region in Belgium at a steal – for only 1 euro – after Danish leaders spurned his idea to buy Greenland.
Sen. Tom Cotton says he raised the idea of buying Greenland with the White House well before the issue became public last week, a proposal that ultimately caused a diplomatic spat between President Donald Trump and the Danish Prime Minister.
