Bookmakers do not believe that Denmark are going to buckle and sell Greenland to Donald Trump.
The United States president is not adverse to controversy, and once again he has found it due to his comments over a postponed trip to Denmark.
Trump has revealed that he wanted to engage Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen about the prospect of purchasing Greenland, the world’s largest island and an autonomous Danish territory.

Frederiksen was quick to insist that the sale of Greenland would not be contemplated, which resulted in Trump deciding to cancel the trip.
It now remains to be seen just how serious Trump was, but Bookmakers have already reacted by pricing up the chances of Trump buying Greenland.
OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “This is a genuine thing, Donald Trump really wants to buy Greenland – so at 150/1 and considering the odds he has battled against before, this could very well be decent value!”
Selected odds on Greenland
Donald Trump to never visit Greenland – 1/10
Denmark to ban Trump from entering – 5/1
Donald Trump to buy Greenland – 150/1
