The last few days between President Donald Trump and Danish PM Mette Frederiksen have been very up and down, to say the least.
President Trump said that she called him and they had a great conversation.
"She called me, a wonderful woman, we had a great conversation, we have a very good relationship with Denmark, and we agreed to speak later," he said Friday evening before leaving for the G7 Summit in France. "But she was very nice. she put a call in, and I appreciated it very much."
This was just after President Trump complained that Frederiksen had a "nasty" response to him talking about potentially buying Greenland.
Frederiksen called Trump's idea to purchase Greenland "absurd" and also said she hoped he wasn't being serious when he said it.
After hearing about her remarks, President Trump cancelled his trip to Denmark, which was scheduled for September 2. During the trip he was scheduled to meet with the Queen of Denmark, along with other leaders and business officials.
....The Prime Minister was able to save a great deal of expense and effort for both the United States and Denmark by being so direct. I thank her for that and look forward to rescheduling sometime in the future!

"I thought it was an inappropriate statement," President Trump said. "All she had to do is say, 'No, we wouldn’t be interested.'"
Trump says that Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen's comment that his idea of buying Greenland is 'absurd' was "nasty" and a "very not nice way of saying something."

These are two strong personalities who butted heads at first, but perhaps this is the beginning of a path to a deal that works for both of their countries. It will be interesting to see how the relations between Denmark and United States plays out.
