Trump Threatens to Sue Scotland

It was Donald Trump's long-held dream. To build the best links golf course in the world in Scotland, as a tribute to his late mother who was born in the country.

But it is fast turning into a nightmare for the billionaire business tycoon. After initial opposition to the project from environmental groups, Trump now has a green problem of his own, in the shape of an offshore wind farm.Trumps new golf course on the Aberdeenshire coast near Menie.

With the Trump International Golf Links ready for action from July, Trump has shelved plans for an adjoining hotel until a decision is made on the wind farm.

And he was in Scotland this week to accuse the government of luring him into his £1 bn project by telling him the offshore developemtn would never be built.
Trump threatens to sue Scotland Trump threatens to sue Scotland. He told CNN he plans to sue, unless the development is abandoned.

"If an administration that's previous gives a statement, and if you rely on that statement, and then you build and spend tens of millions of pounds in this case, building this great course -- if you do that and rely on certain statements, and the next administration say 'Well, we're not going to (do that)', then I think that is unfair..

"I don't think that is good business. I think people looking to invest in Scotland will look at this and say 'Well, we'll invest some place else.'

"I will sue if they try to advance it further, I will be suing Scotland."
