GOP fundraises off Greenland flap: 'Support President Trump and his efforts to help America grow!'

Source: Politico

House Republicans’ campaign arm is not only standing behind President Donald Trump’s bid to buy Greenland — it's fundraising off it.

The National Republican Congressional Committee began running a promotion in which donors contributing $25 or more receive a limited-edition T-shirt depicting the semiautonomous Arctic island, part of the Kingdom of Denmark, as part of the U.S.

“Support President Trump and his efforts to help America grow!” reads the promotion touting the limited-edition tee. The red shirt features a map of the continental U.S., along with silhouettes of Alaska, Hawaii and Greenland patterned with the American flag.

The president’s interest in acquiring Greenland, initially assumed by some in the White House to be a throwaway comment, has grown into an international flap after The Wall Street Journal reported on it a week ago.

3. Oh, FFS.

In the unlikely case that anyone here is under the illusion that the Republican party is not wholly in bed with Trump, here you are. A good reminder that our problems will not disappear automatically even when MF45 is ousted from the White House (November 2020 or, hopefully, earlier) A lot of work still to do!

9. We will be fighting these fools for the next few decades at the minimum

The good news is that current demographic trends point to their marginalization and eventual extinction. We just need to hold the line and keep them out of office in the meantime.

17. Perfect statement.

If it's true than during last presidential cycle GOP (primaries sessions) wasn't behind him, it since had come full in the Trump crazy train.

8. Payback time

Leif Erikson invaded America. So it’s payback time.

What? He was from iceland? Invading the wrong country didn’t stop us from invading Iraq.

My account is empty so I can’t afford one of the sarcasm things.

11. Greenland is a pretty liberal place, sure let's make it a state.

Once we break the 50 state deadlock its open season for any and all other US territories to become states. Guam and Puerto Rico both are heavy blue places. DC also, super blue.

The Republican Party would cease to exist if we add more states.

20. I imagine the shirt comes in brown only.

You can't buy a decent t-shirt from an internet site for less than 20-25 dollars. I presume these t-shirts are made by slave labor in China and sold to the National RethugliKlan CC for 95 cents per.

23. This is their "if the libs think it's bad, then it's good" mentality - fundamentally trollish

If the Republican Party was renamed the Troll Party, it would be much more accurate.

24. Heather Cox Richardson offers a broader and more chilling perspective:




The Greenland bid is a piece of Trump's role in a criminal international oligarchy. Climate change will open up new oil fields and mineral deposits there, and as Robert Mueller pointed out in a speech to the FBI in 2011, cornering resources is the future of international crime:

27. They missed a few fundraising opportunities ...

... like T-shirts that say:

“Support the president’s efforts to protect us from cancer-causing wind turbines!”

“Help the president build a monument to the brave soldiers who won the Revolutionary War by shutting down the airports.”

“Donate to the president’s Put America First initiative by purchasing his made-in-China MAGA merchandise.”
