By Mikael Hertig *In Greenland, two parties are open to discuss a possible US take over of the big Island. Beside Naleraq, the second political parties are the center - right party "Demokraterne". The latter information will be seen as surprising, as Democrats among many people has been seen as a Pro-Danish party. Even if "Democrats" won new mandates at the latest election. At the latest parliament elections Siumut lost 7.1 %. Likewise the second most wellknown and big party Inuit Attaqatigiit lost 7.6 %. The winners were Democrats + 6 %, Nunnatta Qitornai +3,4 % and Naleraq +1.8 %. Thus, two of the winning parties claim for some kind of serious discussion with developoment swop from Denmark as colonial power to USA instead. Still, the two reduced dominant party clearly maintain the idea of movement towards full Greenlandic sovereignty as an ongoing process . The crucial point is to develop of a self-sufficient economy.

"Partii Naleraq and the Democrats would like the United States to take over Denmark's role in this country, but critical voices do not believe that greater dependence on the United States brings Greenland closer to independence, " KNR writes.Nevertheless, Trumps buying offer has resulted in debate in Greenland. One of the most important persons in the original independence movement in Greenland is Aqqaluk Lynge, IA. However, Aqqaluk Lynge does not believe that relying on the US is the right way to go.
" This is something we should strongly reject. The United States is not looking to help us. They are looking to buy us, says Aqqaluk Lynge, who believes that Donald Trump's wishes are a direct attack on Denmark's sovereignty and Greenland's desire for independence....- Politicians in Greenland will do well to be very cautious in their statements. Greenland and Denmark are only just now trying to understand what that (Trump's offer, ed.) eans in a purely political way, " Lynge said to KNR's journalist Betak.Partii Naleraq's Pele Broberg introduced the debate. He wants independence paid by USA instead of an OST-like postcolonial relationship (OverSeas Territory) to Denmark. Steen Lynge, leader of the 3rd biggest paty Democrat believes that Greenland should exmine the attention of the United States in an effort to become financially independent.
