Re: Trump wants to buy Greenland

The idea of buying Greenland, along with many other comments and tweets of Pres. Trump to me is showing the massive incompetency and danger of him as President and a need to remove him from office by Impeachment or the 25th Amendment for the good of the country and world. Should check your sources,...
