Mette Frederiksen Age

She is 47 years Old.

Mette’s father Flemming Frederiksen said she got her start in politics at a young age.

“She has been preoccupied with political matters since she was six/seven years old,” he said, adding, “I have never doubted that Mette, if she wanted to, could go all the way.”

Mette became an official member of the Social Democrats’ youth branch at 15 and was appointed to her first position in parliament as Employment and Justice Minister at 24.

Mette Frederiksen Family

Mette Frederiksen is currently engaged and planned to be married to Bo Tengeberg, a well-known cinematographer and director in Denmark. He’s worked as a cinematographer on several films including The KillingAngels in Fast Motion, and Mom Squad. His directorial debut, Wonderful Copenhagen, was released in 2018.

She was previously married to Erik Harr, a Direktør at FADL. The couple has two children, daughter Ida Feline Harr (17) and Son Magne Harr (13).

 

She made headlines this week after President Donald Trump postponed a meeting with her due to her having “no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland”.

“Denmark is a very special country with incredible people” the President wrote on Twitter, “but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s comments…I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time..”

He also praised the Prime Minister for saving “a great deal of expense and effort for both the United States and Denmark by being so direct. I thank her for that and look forward to rescheduling sometime in the future!”

It’s unclear why the President wants to purchase Greenland or why he thought the Prime Minister of Denmark would have the authority to sell it, or why he thought it would be for purchase in the first place. Frederiksen was perplexed by the question as well.

“Greenland is not for sale. Greenland is not Danish. Greenland belongs to Greenland. I strongly hope that this is not meant seriously,” Frederiksen told the newspaper Sermitsiaq.

“It’s an absurd discussion, and [Greenland Premier] Kim Kielsen has of course made it clear that Greenland is not for sale. That’s where the conversation ends,” she added.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow confirmed that the President is exploring the possibility of buying Greenland in a Fox News interview, saying ““I don’t want to predict an outcome, I’m just saying the president, who knows a thing or two about buying real estate, wants to take a look at a Greenland purchase.”

He continued by justifying the strategy behind the idea “Denmark owns Greenland, Denmark is an ally, Greenland is a strategic place, up there. And they’ve got a lot of valuable minerals.”
