Alistair Munro reports that the Scottish government has told the Trump Organization to stop engaging in false advertising in their quest to battle off-shore windfarms, which, as I noted in my Golf World newsmaker's story on Trump, would be visible and unsightly from Trump International.
The latest ad in the Trump campaign weaves in the Lockerbie bombing, prompting one politico to say it marked a new low for Trump.
Under the banner “Is this the future for Scotland?” his protest displays a picture of a huge windfarm in California.
It states: “Tourism will suffer and the beauty of your country is in jeopardy!
“This is the same mind that backed the release of terrosist al-Megrahi, ‘for humane reasons’ – after he ruthlessly killed 270 people on Pan-Am flight 103 over Lockerbie.”
Green Party co-convener Patrick Harvie MSP said: “Trump has sunk to a new low. Linking renewables policy to Lockerbie victims is sick."
**A little bit of context here for those who missed the earlier post: Trump is bringing up Lockerbie because of the revelation earlier this year that he was asked by the First Minister to endorse the freeing of the terrorist al Megrahi.
