The image was likely meant to resemble one tweeted by Trump on Monday that showed Trump Tower looming over Greenland along with the caption, "I promise not to do this to Greenland!" 

Since Trump floated the idea over the weekend, several officials have rejected it, including Denmark’s prime minister, who said the proposal was “absurd.”

“We are open for business, but we’re not for sale,” said Ane Lone Bagger, Greenland’s foreign minister.
