Trump vodka features a single angular "T" but the Trump whisky might have a new decoration. According to an article in The Press and Journal, Trump has has applied to the Court of the Lord Lyon so that an official Trump coat of arms can be created.Any person who wishes to use Arms must petition for a Grant of Arms or - if they can trace their ancestry back to an ancestor who had a grant of Arms - a "matriculation" showing their place within the family. If a grant is obtained then a parchment is issued and a duplicate is recorded in the Public Register of All Arms and Bearings in Scotland. The website says that Arms are not generally granted to non-British citizens but those of Scottish ancestry (which Trump is, on his mother's side) can apply to the Lord Lyon King of Arms for cadet matriculations, as described above.
Meanwhile locals continue to protest the development, recently stealing marker flags used to map out the course from the site. The Tripping Up Trump movement also continues to pick up speed, and members were seen protesting Trump's Aberdeenshire development at the British Open.
