Trump tweeted a magnificently garish rendering of Trump Tower Greenland on Monday afternoon, promising the reluctant Danes that if he owned their massive island, it would certainly not look like that. (Presumably, the building would be black with gold accents, instead of solid gold, and several stories higher, with a golf course). Twitter exploded.
Many applauded the president’s trolling prowess. Could Trump want to buy Greenland just to trigger the media, the #Resistance, or both? “CNN probably thinks this is a real picture,” one supporter tweeted, while another suggestedrenaming it Whiteland for extra outrage potential.
Greenland is massive. We know it’s for the Space Force base pic.twitter.com/S9XbSTxOVKOr perhaps Greenland would be the site of a future Space Force base?

Not everyone appreciated the president’s humor. “That looks like an awesome place for your son to hold another meeting with foreign enemies,” one detractor sniffed. “Could you at least pretend to be president?” another complained.
Most, however, agreed the president had just trolled his online nemeses mercilessly.
