  1. Hey, Chris here — should the US buy Greenland — if it’s for sale?

  2. Why stop there
    HOW MUCH FOR THE EIFFEL TOWER

  3. Just buy half of Greenland

  4. As a Greenlander I would love the country to be bought by the US – granting instant citizenship to all her inhabitants!

    America tried before because of its military position in the arctic, potential for new drilling, and your favorite CNN, Salt.

    • U sound stupid lol. He wants to buy Greenland to have something positive happen in his miserable excuse of a presidency. Even if Greenland was for sale and he did manage to buy it, how many more hundreds of billions of dollars would that add to the national debt? Which has already ballooned under trump to over 1 trillion dollars. The reason a recession is coming again is because trump is a dumbass, who doesn’t understand markets or how taxes work and isnt willing to listen to anyone if they dont agree with him, regardless of experience. This is the talking point president at it again trying to bullshit his way out of actually doing anything to help the economy, or the american people.

    • Russia probably blackmailed him to buy it so the Russians have a place to go during the invasion lol

    • @Marco Antonio What invasion?

      @Nicholas Grey it was at 7.8 trillion under Obama and 9 trillion in 2010 so check your facts

  7. I guess suspicion around the Epstein “suicide” is “old news” now

  8. “Why not call it Trumpland?”

    *good one CNN. How original. Would have never thought of that one.* 😑

  9. I recommend removing your balls from the vice before filming

  10. Here this middle school science guy again 🤣🤣 Simple words and pictures

    Canada last bought an island owned by another country in 1999. Better get you cheque book out 😉

    Paid cash, not debt.

    POTUS keeps changing the bait, and he keeps catching the same fish over and over… lol

  13. It’s not that crazy, a lot of resources, strategic position to Russia and Europe, arctic sea trade network

    • Trade with Russia (Weapons,Drugs)

      BrendanJ Rice But it belongs to another country. America does not own the whole world. A sane person never thinks in turn of buying another country. Now Hitler, he didn’t buy he just took, which ended very badly. The arrogance of Trump is appalling.

    • Yeah it’s a great idea, too bad Democrats are so obsessed with hating Trump they would cut off their own hand just so he can’t shake it.

    Excellent “Global Warming”
    will melt the Ice
    So we can Drill for Oil

    • Come on All Gore, haven’t you bought up enough beach front property after fooling people to move so you can move in?

    • Yea, then we can put all THAT carbon into the atmosphere, and continue to cook our selves into extinction! What a great idea, Mr Potus!

    Trigger – TrumpLand is perfect!
    Good call for once!

  16. When the top comments on CNN videos are of them getting Roasted, you know Trump’s still winning 😂

  17. We should buy Iceland so we can have 100% stake in Bjork

    Why not? US bought Alaska right?

  19. Algernon Campbell | August 20, 2019 at 12:28 PM | Reply

    Don’t buy it, TAKE IT! We would only have to send a few fishing trawlers like in the movie “Jaws.”

  20. We should buy Donald the moon and bury him there. MAGA
