“If he is truly contemplating this, then this is final proof, that he has gone mad,” foreign affairs spokesman for the Danish People’s Party, Soren Espersen, told broadcaster DR.

“The thought of Denmark selling 50,000 citizens to the United States is completely ridiculous,” he said.

Actually, they are already heavily subsidized by Denmark. If they were truly independent, the economy would collapse in about 10 seconds.

Debt is good. Besides, Trump said the debt would be eliminated in 8 years. We're halfway there.

Aren't we?

You are making an argument for dropping ten states, actually

And the moment PR comes under the full umbrella if statehood their draw will quadruple and the regulatory jump alone will drop PR’s GDP by a fraction
