Trump Prevails In Scotland
If there's anything I've learned it's that you don't bet against the Trumpster, he usually get what he wants. And yet I thought he was going to be out of luck when it came to claiming a slice of Scotland to build a golf course. After a long struggle, however, Trump has been granted approval for his planned £1 billion golf resort in Aberdeenshire from the Scottish government. Environmentalists have been fighting the development because it impinges on protected sand dunes. Last November, the project was rejected by a local council committee but Trump was in Scotland earlier this year to fight for his development. Since then the project has been reviewed by the Scottish government and it has been deemed that there is a large enough economic and social benefit to justify the construction. Trump still has to gather capital and all the land necessary, things that have been proven to be easily surmountable obstacles for him in the past.
