Should Denmark buy US instead? Some say it’s a great idea

The wonderfully obvious if unrealistic idea that Europe’s 12th-largest economy should own the entire USofA was even proposed by some local media.

Politiken said Prime Minister Kim Kielsen believed that since the Vikings had been in America long before Columbus, “it is only natural for us to get the United States back,” but he couldn’t quite decide on its market value, considering the size of the US’ national debt.

That piece, of course, came from the newspaper’s satirical page as did a similar suggestion by the New Yorker. But it seems there are plenty of people on social media who find the idea thrilling, and some would even take part in crowdfunding such a deal.

In case you just returned from a trip to the Amazon wilderness and have not caught up with the news cycle: Trump said he considered buying Greenland from Denmark, saying the country didn’t really need the island while Washington could find it useful. Denmark said Greenland was not for sale, but then Trump surprisingly canceled a visit there which many Danes took offense to.
