Recently, the purchase of islands in the United States has become a hot topic. According to US media, Trump confirmed on the 18th that he was willing to buy Greenland, the worlds largest island. Since then, the United States and Denmark, the island owner, have launched a fierce war of words.
In response to the purchase of the island, the Danish Prime Minister bluntly said that the idea of the United States was absurd and that Greenland was not for sale.
Faced with the rejection of the island purchase plan, US President Trump delayed his visit to Denmark in early September. In an interview, he also expressed his dissatisfaction directly, calling the Danish Prime Minister nasty. The word nasty has the meanings of disgusting, dirty and nausea. According to the New York Times, this is Trumps favorite word for women who offend him. Trump has also used the term to attack other women on many occasions, including U.S. House Speaker Pelosi, British Princess Megan and former presidential rival Hillary Clinton.

For Trump so eager to buy Greenland Island, foreign media generally analysis that is to value its military value and resource value. It is understood that Greenland is a dependency of Denmark and has autonomy. Most of its internal affairs are decided by the local government, but its foreign and security policies are managed by the Danish government. The United Statess targeting of Greenland dates back to the nineteenth century. In 1867, the State Department launched an investigation into the purchase of Greenland and Iceland. During World War II, Truman, then President of the United States, pursued geopolitical interests. In 1946, he offered to buy Greenland for $100 million, but was rejected by the Danish government.
