Trump wants to establish a permanent diplomatic presence in Greenland. Isn't that the same thing as annexing it?

Donald Trump Still Has Plans for Greenland

Update:

Does he want Greenland for a US territory/state or for himself?

    The US already has a "permanent diplomatic presence" in 178 nations around the world. These are called Embassies and all countries have them. No, placing an Embassy or Consulate in a foreign country isn't the same as "annexing" it. The US currently hosts 178 foreign Embassies and yet hasn't been "annexed" by any of those nations. But Trump's loose talk about Greenland has little basis in reality and is unrelated to the extensive network of diplomatic missions the US already has across the planet.

    Better yet, we'll just exile him there after he loses the election and is out of office in January, 2021.

    comment: yes, and Jared Kushner.

    Trump should make Greenland a nice offer. How about a shiny new Tesla for every adult?

    Every empire has to expand or it will retract. If Denmark won't give up Greenland, the US must take it by force.

      That could set off WW3, Denmark, the UK and the UK Commonwealth of Nations and all their militaries will end up protecting Greenland from US annexation.

    This is the only wacky idea he's had that is actually an excellent idea. The USA should absolutely buy Greenland if it can be bought.

    I hope Denmark realizes he is far less trustworthy than a viper.
