Danish police out $600K after Trump canceled trip to Copenhagen

Danish police reportedly spent about $600,000 to prepare for US President Donald Trump's canceled visit to the country.

The Jyllands-Posten, a local newspaper, reported that the amount totaled approximately 4 million kroner, citing a freedom of information request, according to Bloomberg. 

The estimated costs reportedly cover canceled leave for officers and compensation for police equipment and materials, The Hill reported. 

Trump was scheduled to visit Denmark from Sept. 2 to 3.

He canceled after Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen called the president's plan to purchase Greenland, which is under Danish control, "absurd."

Trump called her comments "nasty" and "inappropriate."

"She’s not talking to me. She’s talking to the United States of America. You don’t talk to the United States that way," Trump told reporters after he canceled plans to visit Denmark.

He later praised the prime minister as a "wonderful woman" after the two leaders spoke on the phone.

A few Republican lawmakers have since voiced their support for acquiring Greenland.
