REPORT: President Trump Wants Greenland Because of China’s effort to build 3 Military bases there

Greenland has been at the centre of controversy over the past week after President Donald Trump called Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen “nasty”.

Now, however, it seems that Senator Tom Cotton, a Republican from Arkansas, was actually one of the first people to raise the issue. And Chinese aspirations to build bases there were a factor in Cotton’s discussion about purchasing the country.

Speaking on Wednesday in Little Rock, Arkansas, at the Talk Business & Politics Power Lunch, Cotton said last year the Chinese government tried to get approval from the local government of Greenland to allow Beijing to allow it to build three military bases there.
