Donald Trump Fails To Block Wind Farm Near One Of His Golf Courses

Donald Trump Wind Farm Battle in Scotland

Presidential hopeful Donald Trump has failed to stop the Scottish government from building a golf course near one of his golf courses in Europe.

Five U.K. Supreme Court judges unanimously rejected the legal challenge from Trump on Wednesday, ruling the 11-turbine wind farm could move forward.

Trump Organization executive George Sorial, said the outcome “demonstrates the foolish, small minded and parochial mentality which dominates the current Scottish Government’s dangerous experiment with wind energy.”

The decision, from the final court to hear the case, comes after years of fighting to stop construction of the off-short wind farm.

Trump’s people have argued that the wind farm will “completely destroy the bucolic [region] and cast a terrible shadow upon the future of tourism for the area.”

Trump runs two golf courses in Scotland — the Trump International Golf Links outside Aberdeen, Scotland, and Turnberry, which is one of Scotland’s most famous courses.

Scottish politician Alex Salmond called Trump “once, twice, three times a loser.”
