Trump on Tuesday canceled his September visit to Denmark after the country's prime minister, Mette Frederiksen, called his idea of having the United States purchase Greenland, which is rich in natural resources, "absurd." Trump confirmed to reporters on Sunday he had recently discussed the possibility of purchasing the world's largest island, though he said such a move was not an immediate priority.

White House Economic Adviser Larry Kudlow has said that Greenland is a strategic place and has a lot of valuable minerals.
