In the wake of news stories that claimed President Trump floated the idea of the U.S. possibly buying Greenland for its natural resources, Montana Governor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Steve Bullock decided to troll the President a bit.

As expected, the news brought about a wave of internet mockery.
