Real estate mogul and former Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has outdone himself this time.
After starting construction on a 1,235 acre coastal golf course on rural land in Scotland that will feature two golf courses, 950 houses and a luxury hotel, Trump is now complaining that the Scottish Minister is “hell-bent on destroying Scotland’s coastline” with offshore wind projects.

In a letter to Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond sent this week, Trump hilariously says he will try to “save Scotland” (yes, really) from the plight of wind turbines being proposed for the country’s coastline . . . .

Enough said. After all, wind mill farms do good. What good comes from the game of golf is beyond me. After all, I have never played golf, I do not plan on playing golf. About the only good that I have found from the game--is it is a good way to cure insomnia.
In addition, If anyone would please sign the petition Thanking Scottland for standing up against Trump and for the environment--the environment which we all share, Thank you for your time and consideration. After all, the environment is indeed our responsibility, we owe our descendants a livable planet to live and grow in.
