I wrote about this last year, when Trump took his circus to Scotland to quash the proposed wind farm that he said would unduly affect his planned golf mega resort. Apparently the good people of Scotland had the sense to reject his "expert testimony".
Trump has not exactly endeared himself with the public there in recent months (big surprise, right?), using increasingly inflammatory rhetoric as scare tactics.
American billionaire Donald Trump has vowed to launch a “lawsuit” after the Scottish Government gave the go-ahead to an offshore wind farm near his Scottish golf course.
The European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC) in Aberdeen Bay, which was given approval by the government on Tuesday, will consist of 11 wind turbines and their connecting cables.
It will be sited between two and 4.5 km off the Aberdeenshire coast, capable of generating up to 100 MW, providing enough energy to meet the needs of over 49,000 homes – almost half of the homes in Aberdeen.
Mr Trump had previously vowed not to complete his golf development at the Menie Estate in Aberdeenshire - which is due to include a second course and five star hotel - if the wind farm was built claiming it would spoil views from his course.
Following the decision Mr Trump said he would now bring a "spend whatever monies are necessary" in an effort to stop the project going ahead.
Mr Trump said: “This was a purely political decision. As dictated by Alex Salmond, a man whose obsession with obsolete wind technology will destroy the magnificence and beauty of Scotland.
