Trump Aberdeen Update

April 17, 2009

Been wondering what's up with Donald Trump's big Scottish golf resort? It has been a while since we last wrote about it, so let's check in with the Scotsman newspaper.

The latest from Aberdeen: Trump and a former local councilwoman are in a flap over her alleged trespassing on the Trump property. The woman, Debra Storr, was there at the end of March, taking photographs of the locked gates. (She contends Trump is illegally blocking access to locals.)

Trump apparently wrote her a personal letter that she took as unfriendly, and this week he filed a complaint about her with the Standards Commission, a watchdog group for councilors. "He is trying to intimidate and bully me," the Scotsman quotes Storr as saying, "and I am not easily bullied."

Ok, I'll admit there's not much surprise in all of this. There really isn't much else to say about the project at the moment, unless you count this news flash from last week: 'Scotland is a Great Nation, Says Trump.'
