It is unclear whether Cotton was the first to pitch the idea to Trump, who confirmed last weekend that he had been mulling it over. The senator’s spokeswoman told The Washington Post that Cotton brought it up in a conversation with the president more than a year ago.
Cotton defended the idea at a luncheon this week hosted by an Arkansas-based website, Talk Business & Politics, where he was asked why the U. S. might want to buy Greenland.
“You’re joking, but I can reveal to you that several months ago, I met with the Danish ambassador, and I proposed that they sell Greenland to us,” Cotton told the event moderator.
“It’s obviously the right decision for the United States, and anyone who can’t see that is blinded by Trump derangement,” he added, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported

"He also defended the idea to The Wall Street Journal, saying it would be a good military strategy.
“In the last few years China effectively tried to gain a military foothold in Greenland by offering financing for airport construction,” he told the newspaper. ”Purchasing it would keep it out of the hands of both the Chinese and the Russians. And it is rich in natural resources with untold economic potential.”

So lets use this logic, you own your house, your happy with it, you like your neighbors, someone wants to buy your house. Its not for sale, but someone wants to buy your house.. You are not selling your house or have a desire to, its your childhood home, or its a house you like, you remolded and renovated, you invested your blood, sweat into the house. And someone wants to buy it. You just going to let that happen?
