No Joke: Trump Really Does Want To Buy Greenland

"I would ask the left... let's create an off-ramp for those people, because when you're trying to deprogram people from a cult, one of the first things you have to do is allow them to change their mind".

"The concept came up and.strategically it's interesting", Trump told reporters from the tarmac in Morristown, New Jersey, as he prepared to board Air Force One.

President Donald Trump dismissed concerns of recession Sunday and offered an optimistic outlook for the economy after last week's steep drop in the financial markets. In Sunday television interviews, he said that consumers are seeing higher wages and are able to spend and save more.

"There is no recession in sight", Kudlow said. "Jokes aside, we will of course love to have an even closer strategic relationship with the United States", Frederiksen said.

The US president himself weighed in on Twitter, saying, "We are doing very well with China, and talking!" Democrats on Sunday argued Trump's trade policies were posing an acute, short-term risk.

A strong economy is key to Trump's reelection prospects.

Navarro also said that USA consumers are not affected by the administration's trade war with China, though tariffs are taxes paid by US importers, not by China, and are often passed along to USA businesses and consumers through higher prices.

For bond markets, the sort of movement Navarro described is often driven by trouble - in this case the possibility that the trade battle with China is lasting far longer than expected and becoming disruptive to business investment and growth.

"Weak global growth and trade tensions are having an effect on the US economy", he said. The semi-autonomous territory of Denmark has said it's not for sale.

A slowdown would be bad news for Trump, who is building his 2020 bid for a second term around the economy's performance. On Sunday, Kudlow again pointed the finger at the central bank, describing rate hikes through 2017 and 2018 as "very severe monetary restraint". The president later confirmed that he would be "interested" to discuss this issue.

"This sort of recycling won't clear the oceans of plastic or reduce global warming, but it is an elegant solution to reducing the pain of tariffs on the American consumer of China and may give equity markets a small boost as we start the week", said Jeffrey Halley, senior market analyst for Asia-Pacific at OANDA.

Speaking to CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday, Democratic South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg criticized the administration for failing to deliver a deal with China.
