Swinton vs. Trump in Golf Resort Dispute
Posted on Oct 13, 2009
Donald Trump is plotting to plop down a deluxe golf resort in an “environmentally sensitive” part of Scotland—a plan that’s getting some of the locals good and riled up, including actor Tilda Swinton, according to the AP. Swinton has added her name to a petition signed by some 15,000 Scots to block Trump from breaking ground, which does not please The Donald. —KA

Trump’s Scotland representative, George Sorial, responded by saying the actress was siding with “extremists.”
Trump was granted permission to build the golf course on an environmentally sensitive stretch of coast after a public inquiry in 2008.
