Trump Wants Greenland – level 2

29-08-2019 07:00

President Trump was interested in buying Greenland which is a Danish territory.

Officials from Greenland and Denmark criticized the idea. The Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen tweeted that she “would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland.” She also called the idea “absurd.”

The Queen of Denmark invited Trump to visit the country in September, but he decided to cancel the trip.

Difficult words: officials (the people in the government, the “bosses”), purchase (the activity of selling/buying something), decide (make a plan, choose what to do).
