Why Did Trump Bid For Greenland? Global Warming

So why did Donald Trump want to buy Greenland? Well, global warming is making it much more habitable. So, it makes sense for an American expansionist to make a bid for the place. It is part of what is being called the new scramble for the Arctic…which is like nothing we’ve seen since the European powers divided up Africa “as coolly as if they’d bought and paid for it.”

What is, of course, charmingly ironic in that even while this is happening, Trump and his enablers continue to claim that global warming is a hoax.

Ah, the joys of hypocrisy.
