RE: Trump inquires about US buying Greenland
important facts:

greenland is run independent partly to protect indigenous rights, so you can't just buy them from denmark without the approval of greenland.

greenland itself is unlikely to accept money to join the US under trump, since he does not protect indigenous rights. leaving denmark would require a popular ballot initiative and they would need to be convinced indigenous people would fare better under the US.

greenland is rich in natural resources that are hard to mine due to the climate there. if global warming continues and changes the climate there, strip mining greenland becomes a possibility if it were no longer run independently.
