Donald, do it. Buy that icy rock from right under those Danes. Do what you do best and dunk on every single one of the people who think this is a misguided and stupid idea – because it isn’t.
There will be many detractors along the way but you are strong enough to face them all. There will be so many know-it-alls calling you an imperialist and bemoaning the expense on the ‘backs’ of the American taxpayer. And you know what? It doesn’t matter.
This isn’t imperialism, this is future urban planning. This isn’t poor spending, it’s smart hedging on some pretty big asset class bets. Land, metals, and missiles are what an empire needs to sustain its power. Trump knows this and China definitely knows it. There’s a reason why Beijing has had its roving eye on Greenland lately.
There could very well come a time when we actually need Greenland and the time to buy it is now.
