Kudlow on Greenland: Trump ‘Knows a Thing or Two About Buying Real Estate’ and Wants to Take a Look


White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow appeared on Fox News Sunday this morning to dismiss concerns of a recession and say, “We should not be afraid of optimism.”

Guest host Dana Perino — filling in for Chris Wallace — spoke with Kudlow on the economy, the impact of the trade war, whether a tax cut for middle-income families is still on the table.

Towards the end of the interview, she brought up the rather stunning news that President Donald Trump has talked about buying Greenland.

Greenland has said it’s not for sale and the president is being widely mocked for the idea.

Kudlow chuckled a bit and said, “It’s developing. We’re looking at it, we don’t know.”

“Denmark owns Greenland. Denmark is an ally. Greenland is a strategic place up there. They’ve got a lot of valuable minerals,” he continued. “I don’t want to predict an outcome, I’m just saying the president, who knows a thing or two about buying real estate, wants to take a look.”
