  • Warning Signs for Republicans

Surprise and confusion greeted a Wall Street Journal report last Thursday that Mr Trump has been raising the subject of buying Greenland in recent weeks.

Trump confirmed to reporters on Sunday that he had recently discussed the possibility, though he said such a move was not an immediate priority.

President Donald Trump, his peace envoy to Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad and top security advisers held discussions on Friday.

The US president himself weighed in on Twitter, saying, "We are doing very well with China, and talking!"

World financial markets have been on edge amid a series of signs pointing to a slowing of the global economy - notably because of the trade war between the world's two largest economies - and have been reacting to even the slightest new indicator. The northern-most US base is part of the military's global network of radars and other sensors to provide ballistic missile warning and space surveillance. "Strategically it's interesting, and we would be interested, but we will talk with them a little bit". "It's not No. 1 on the burner, I can tell you that", Mr Trump said.

Trump suggested that Denmark loses nearly $700 million a year overseeing the massive ice-covered island with about 58,000 residents.

The president, a former real estate magnate, has been curious about the area's natural resources and geopolitical relevance, the paper said.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow, appearing on Fox News, said Greenland is "a strategic place" with "a lot of valuable minerals".

On CNN's "State of The Union", White House trade advisor Peter Navarro maintained that China is the one feeling the brunt of the trade war.

Trump is due to visit Copenhagen early next month when the Arctic will be on the agenda in meetings with Frederiksen and Prime Minister Kim Kielsen of Greenland, an autonomous Danish territory.
