Trump says buying Greenland ‘a large real estate deal’

President Donald Trump said buying Greenland would be "a large real estate deal" that could ease a financial burden on Denmark, which administers the island, but hours earlier its Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen ruled out any sale to the U.S.

The latest hope by liberals to the end of the orange fascism that is Trump, is that the looming economic collapse that he has inadvertently set in motion will somehow damage Trump enough to finally beta him.

"I think it'd be very hard to deal if they do violence, I mean, if it's another Tiananmen Square", Trump told journalists in New Jersey.

With melting ice making the region more accessible, the United States has been firm in trying to counter any moves by Russian Federation and China in the Arctic.

Analysts interpreted the postponement as an attempt by the administration to avoid impacting U.S. consumers, mainly during the Christmas buying season, what appeared to be a tacit acknowledgement that American shoppers are the ones being asked to, in effect, foot the bill for the tariffs.

"We have the strongest economy in the world and money is coming here for our stock market".

Nonetheless, the president's chief trade advisor, Peter Navarro, firmly rejected that notion in television appearances Sunday.

Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon about negotiating trade deals with China, writing the country is "Poised for big growth after trade deals are completed". "I never said China was gonna be easy", Trump explained noting that China's devaluation of its currency will lead to the U.S.

But manufacturing growth has slowed and lagging business investment has become a drag. He said he fears Trump is driving the global economy into a recession.

President Donald Trump called out a protester for his "serious weight problem" during a Thursday night rally in Manchester, New Hampshire. During the rally he told one person he thought was a protester that he was overweight.

The president and his advisers have repeatedly accused the Fed of undermining the administration's economic policies. On Sunday, Kudlow again pointed the finger at the central bank, describing rate hikes through 2017 and 2018 as "very severe monetary restraint".

The crowd roared their approval and even had a good laugh when the president mocked his own weight issues, saying the protester has "got a bigger problem than I do".

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke said the USA needed to work with allies to hold China accountable on trade.

Meanwhile, on CNN's "State of the Union", Buttigieg was less confident.
