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.

"I thought it was an inappropriate statement," President Trump said. "All she had to do is say, 'No, we wouldn’t be interested.'"
