Lars Løkke on Trump: You have to put a foot down

You have to put out with the american president Donald Trump, for it is the only thing he has respect for.

that was the gist of it from the former Danish prime minister, Lars Løkke Rasmussen, as he on Friday evening participated in a DR program 'Shredder.'

Here, the conversation namely at Donald Trump and the UNITED states'interest to buy Greenland and not least the relatively cash response, which came from Denmark's current prime minister, Mette Frederiksen (S) in the days after, where she called the idea of a sale of Greenland "absurd."

A choice of words that immediately got Donald Trump to respond in the strongest terms against Denmark and Mette Frederiksen.

But it is, according to Lars Løkke Rasmussen is not unusual that a Danish prime minister put it like this with an american president.

"I have, myself, done in two closed NATO meetings. It is going to have with him, for he has not respect for the other. You have to put a foot down," says Lars Løkke Rasmussen at the 'Shredder,' and adds, that he in fact would have reacted in the same way as Mette Frederiksen.

Mette Frederiksen's clear rejection led to subsequently, Donald Trump canceled his otherwise scheduled visit to Denmark 2. and 3. september.

'Denmark is a very special country with a great population, but in the light of the prime minister Mette Frederiksen's comments that she does not have any interest in discussing a purchase of Greenland, I will postpone our meeting, scheduled for about two weeks, to a different time,' wrote Donald Trump in a Tweet.
