Stockholm - Former Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen is one of several Danish politicians to express scepticism in response to US President Donald Trump's reported interest in buying Greenland.
"It must be an April Fool's Day joke," Rasmussen wrote on Twitter.
Aaja Chemnitz Larsen, one of two lawmakers in the Danish parliament elected from Greenland, also rejected the idea.
"No thanks to Trump buying Greenland! On the contrary, a better and more equal partnership with Denmark should be the way forward for a stronger and in the long-term more independent Greenland," Larsen wrote on Twitter.
