Trump calls Danish PM's Greenland response 'nasty'

US President Donald Trump described the Danish Prime Minister's comments, in response to his offer of buying Greenland, as nasty.

Denmark's Prime Minister said she is "disappointed and surprised" by Mr Trump's decision to cancel a visit to Denmark after she called his idea of buying Greenland "an absurd discussion".

The US president, who was scheduled to visit Denmark on September 2 and 3 as part of a European tour, tweeted his decision early on Wednesday.

The cancellation stunned Danes and blindsided the Danish royal palace, with spokeswoman Lene Balleby telling the Associated Press it came as "a surprise" to the royal household, which had formally invited Mr Trump.

China displays 'rogue' attitude in neighbourhood, creates wedge between US, Europe: Pompeo

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday criticized the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for not only displaying its "rogue" attitude in its neighbourhood, particularly the recent escalation of border tension with India, but also for "pushing disinformation and malicious cyber campaigns so as to drive a wedge between the US and Europe.". "I think all across the world it's becoming more apparent each and every day. Chinese Communist Party decreed an end to freedom in Hong Kong, violating UN-registered treaty and rights of its citizens-one of many int'l treaties that the Chinese Communist Party has violated," Pompeo said during an online conference on democracy held in Copenhagen, Denmark.
