Donald Trump weighs in on Scotland vote — and Scotland weighs in on him
Donald Trump waded into the aftermath of the Scotland independence vote, tweeting that the secession vote may have failed due to “ugly wind turbines” built along the Scottish coastline.
Addressing Scottish National Party leader Alex Salmond –who announced this morning that he would step down after falling short of his goal of independence — Trump tweeted: “I am convinced that if @AlexSalmond had not pushed ugly wind turbines all over Scotland, the vote would have been much better for him!”
Trump’s antipathy towards wind power in Scotland stems from a lawsuit he lost in early 2014, failing to block the Scottish government from approving an offshore wind farm that he claimed would blight the view at his luxury Scottish golf course in Aberdeen. Following his courtroom loss, Trump canceled plans for an additional golf course in Scotland, instead purchasing Doonbeg Golf Club in Ireland.
I am convinced that if @AlexSalmond had not pushed ugly wind turbines all over Scotland, the vote would have been much better for him!

Trump’s observation was greeted with a torrent of colorful abuse, some of it in the creative style perfected by citizens of the (still) United Kingdom. We’ve sampled generously, and take heed: If you’re easily offended, go no further.
.@realDonaldTrump As ever, you are talking out of your arse. But you do it with such STYLE! No wait, I’m thinking of Stephen Fry.
