Danish media crushes ‘questionable real estate agent’ Trump for his ‘absurd’ snub of their country

Published

President Donald Trump has found himself getting skewered by the Danish media after he abruptly canceled a planned meeting with the Danish prime minister after she refused to sell Greenland to the United States.

Copenhagen-based newspaper Berlingske on Wednesday published several articles and editorials that took Trump to task for snubbing an important European ally because it would not entertain selling him Greenland.

The paper’s lead editorial, for example, declared Trump’s cancellation “absurd” and said that he was deeply harming his country’s relationship with Denmark.

“Trump’s postponement of the official state visit indefinitely is in itself a completely unheard of step, a diplomatic insult and deeply ominous to the state throughout transatlantic cooperation,” the editors write.

Columnist Jarl Cordua, meanwhile, describes Trump as a “questionable real estate agent with frayed morals” and said that Denmark must not allowed itself to be bullied by him.

“The US president apparently feels called to take Denmark’s hospitality and respect for granted,” he writes. “It is simply disrespectful to the extent that it must have consequences.”

And a top news story in the paper quotes former Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who says that it is probably good that Trump is cancelling his meeting because it in all likelihood would have wasted the country’s time.

“The security and climate challenges around the Arctic are too important to be discussed at the same time as hopeless discussions such as the sale of Greenland,” the former prime minister explains.

Accused child molester Roy Moore defends Brett Kavanaugh: ‘I too was the object of false allegations’

Accused child molester Roy Moore on Wednesday came to the defense of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault.

Moore's remarks came after The New York Times published accounts from a new book, which found that two of Kavanaugh's accusers were credible.

In a statement to the press, Moore defended Kavanaugh on Wednesday.

"I too was the subject of false allegations, but unlike Justice Kavanaugh and others who have suffered the ire of the left, I filed suit against my accusers and their conspirators," Moore said. "For over two years, I have not seen nor been able to question any of those who went on national television tol tell their false stories just 32 days before the election in December 2017, and ironically I have been sued for defamation for merely denying their false and malicious accusations."
