Some Billionaire Liberals Seek To Exploit Trump’s Vision Of Greenland

Three years ago liberals mocked President Donald Trump for expressing a desire to buy the nation of Greenland from Denmark.

Three years ago liberals mocked President Donald Trump for expressing a desire to buy the nation of Greenland from Denmark.

“It’s just something we’ve talked about. Denmark essentially owns it. We’re very good allies with Denmark. We’ve protected Denmark like we protect large portions of the world, so the concept came up,” Trump told reporters in August 2019. “Strategically, it’s interesting. And, we’d be interested. We’ll talk to them a little bit,” Trump added at the time, although he acknowledged that “it’s not No. 1 on the burner.”

Leaders in Greenland and Denmark were not amused, and flat out rejected the plan. Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen asked if this was a “joke” on Trump’s part, a response the former real estate developer called “nasty.”

In an editorial, The New York Times asked, “Is This Real Life? Or a Peter Sellers movie?” The paper then chided Trump for his “willful ignorance of how the world works,” and for treating “a territory and its independent people like goods and chattel.”

Now, though, as the Biden administration holds U.S. oil reserves hostage in an effort to force Americans to buy electric vehicles, the billionaires whom Democrats complain about so much seek to exploit Greenland’s considerable reserves of rare-earth minerals.

As The Blaze reported on Friday, “Some of the most notable billionaires on the planet have recently invested a lot of money to explore Greenland in the hopes of unearthing rare minerals needed for electric cars, and many are crediting so-called climate change for the opportunity.”

That list includes Bill Gates, Michael Bloomberg, and Jeff Bezos.

Each of them has “invested heavily” in a California company called Kobold Metals, which, The Blaze noted, seeks “to explore remote areas of Greenland that may have a treasure trove of the minerals needed for electric vehicles.”

Ironically, these uber-wealthy liberals who support vastly expensive efforts to force Americans to go green have climate change to thank for the expansion of their wealth.

The Blaze reported, “Until recently, these areas of Greenland have been inaccessible to miners because ice prevented them from shipping the heavy equipment they needed to do their jobs.”

“But higher temperatures, which some attribute to man-made climate change, have caused some of this ice to melt, freeing waterways through which mining companies can transport equipment.”

“It is a concern to witness the consequences and impacts from the climate changes in Greenland,” said Bo Møller Stensgaard, CEO of Bluejay Mining, which is partnering with Kobold Metals in the expedition.

“But, generally speaking, climate changes overall have made exploration and mining in Greenland easier and more accessible.”
