Trump shared a meme that had been passed around on social media since the news broke that he had asked aides to look into purchasing the territory:
Greenland, for the record, is not for sale. And Twitter users weren’t amused, with more than a few offering a warning of what had happened to some of Trump’s other buildings over the years:
Since you work for me and represent me (yes, you are MY president too & you are a public servant), can I ask you to please stop with this Greenland purchase nonsense. So insulting to those who live there. So embarrassing to me. So disrespectful of the office you hold. https://t.co/SxTgdCzzL2

Could you remove the one in Las Vegas, please? Or are we not as important or as beautiful as Greenland?

We’re sorry the current President of the United States is an idiot and offered to buy your country. We’re embarrassed and apologize. Sorry again. Thank you.
