>> GREENLAND WAS JUST AN IDEA,
JUST A THOUGHT BUT WHEN THEY SAY
IT WAS ABSURD AND SAID THEY
NASTY, VERY SARCASTIC WAY I
SAID, WE WILL MAKE IT SOME OTHER
TIME.
WE WILL GO TO DENMARK.
I LOVE DENMARK.
I'VE BEEN TO DENMARK.
WE WILL DO IT ANOTHER TIME.
>> Martha: PRESIDENT TRUMP
EXPLAINING WHY HE SCRAPPED HIS
UPCOMING TRIP TO DENMARK TO
DISCUSS THE POSSIBILITY OF THE
SALE OF GREENLAND, THAT DECISION
WIDELY PANNED BY THE PEOPLE AND
POLITICIANS WHO SPOKE OUT IN
DENMARK.
WATCH.
>> I THINK IT'S A VERY BAD WAY
OF TALKING ABOUT A COUNTRY AND
ESPECIALLY THE PEOPLE OF
GREENLAND.
I THINK HE NEEDS TO SHOW SOME
MORE RESPECT.
>> HE ACTS LIKE A SPOILED CHILD.
THE DANISH PUBLIC, CLEAR
MESSAGES TO THE AMERICAN
WORKERS, PLEASE VOTE FOR ANOTHER
PRESIDENT NEXT TIME.
>> Martha: MY NEXT GUEST WE
DID THIS TODAY, TRUMP ASSUMES
THE ANONYMOUS PART OF OUR
COUNTRY IS FOR SALE ON THAT
INSULTINGLY CANCELS THE VISIT
THAT EVERYONE WAS PREPARING FOR.
OUR PARTS FOR THE U.S. FOR SALE?
ALASKA?
PLEASE SHOW SOME MORE RESPECT.
THE FORMER MINISTER OF BUSINESS.
THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.
WHAT IS YOUR REACTION TO WHAT
THE PRESIDENT'S?
HE SAID IT WAS AN IDEA, A
SUGGESTION AND HE DIDN'T EXPECT
IN HIS WORDS, A NASTY RESPONSE.
>> IS UNFORTUNATE THAT THERE ARE
SUCH WORDS ON BOTH SIDES.
IT WAS A SURPRISE TO US AND
DENMARK THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP
WOULD PUBLICLY RAISE THE IDEA OF
BUYING GREENLAND BECAUSE NOBODY
IN DENMARK OR GREENLAND HAS EVER
INDICATED THAT IT WOULD BE FOR
SALE.
IT MIGHT'VE BEEN A GOOD IDEA TO
CONSULT THE EMBASSY, ANY ONE AND
THE FOREIGN MINISTRY IN THE U.S.
OR SOMEONE WHO KNOWS ABOUT
RELATIONSHIPS BEFORE GOING OUT
WITH AN IDEA BECAUSE IT WAS HARD
FOR THE PRIME MINISTER TO
BLANKLEY SAY NO, THAT IS THE
CASE AND IT'S NOT FOR SALE.
WE DON'T WANT TO INSULT THE U.S.
AND NOTHING PRESIDENT, BUT THE
IDEA OF BUYING PART OF DANISH
TERRITORY AND THE 50,000 PEOPLE
LIVING THERE IS INSULTING
BECAUSE IT'S TALKING ABOUT
GREENLAND LIKE IT'S SOME KIND OF
COMMODITY AND IT'S REAL PEOPLE
LIVING THERE.
IT'S NOT A COMMODITY, NOT FOR
SALE AND IT'S INDICATING WE
WOULDN'T CARE ABOUT GREENLAND
AND WE DO.
>> Martha: AS HE MENTIONED,
MIKE POMPEO PUT OUT AN
EXPRESSION OF ALLIANCE TO HIS
COUNTERPART AND DENMARK TODAY SO
WHAT LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE TRYING
TO SMOOTH THIS OVER.
IT'S INTERESTING THAT 67% OF ALL
ADULT GREEN LENDERS SUPPORT A
VISION OF GREENLAND AS
AN INDEPENDENT STATE AND THEY DO
TAKE ABOUT $600 MILLION FROM THE
DANISH ECONOMY IN ORDER TO
SUPPORT THEMSELVES, OTHER PEOPLE
AND DENMARK WHO DISAGREE?
ARE PEOPLE SAY, WE DON'T NEED
GREENLAND AND THEY WOULD RATHER
BE ON THEIR OWN ANYWAY?
>> I DON'T THINK YOU WILL FIND
ALMOST ANYBODY WHO WANTS TO SELL
GREENLAND.
IT WOULD HAVE TO BE THERE
DECISION.
THEY ARE VERY INDEPENDENT.
THEY HAVE THEIR OWN CULTURE AND
THEIR OWN LANGUAGE.
THEY ARE PART OF THE KINGDOM OF
DENMARK, BUT THEY HAVE THEIR OWN
LOCAL GOVERNMENT AND THEY DECIDE
ON THOSE MATTERS LOCALLY.
THEY STILL HAVE CHOSEN TO REMAIN
PART OF DENMARK BECAUSE THEY
THINK THAT IS BEST FOR
GREENLAND.
THAT'S UP TO THEM.
>> Martha: THE PRESIDENT WOULD
LIKE DENMARK TO UP THEIR
CONTRIBUTION TO NATO SO IT'S A
FULL 2% OF YOUR GDP.
DO YOU AGREE?
>> I AGREE WITH THAT PERSONALLY.
I'M A CONSERVATIVE MYSELF.
I AGREE THAT THE U.S. SHOULDN'T
PAY FOR OUR SECURITY.
I THINK ALL NATO MEMBERS NEED TO
SPEND MORE AND LIVE UP TO THE 2%
TARGET.
>> Martha: WE FOUND OUT
SOMETHING YOU AGREE ON,
EVERYBODY AGREES ON.
