Truth & Rumors: Trump documentary opens Friday

Posted at 1:22 PM by Mark Dee | Categories: Donald Trump, Truth & Rumors

A new documentary on Donald Trump is set to open in limited release Friday.

"You've Been Trumped" by Anthony Baxter covers the development of The Donald's $1.5 billion Scottish resort (the first 18 holes of which opened last month). From what we've heard, it's no rosy portrait. As Stephen Holden of the New York Times writes in his review:

In this unabashedly hostile portrait of a billionaire developer in action as he embarks on a grandiose new project in Scotland, Mr. Trump comes across as an insensitive, lying bully who will do whatever it takes to realize his dream of creating what he promises will be the world’s greatest golf resort.

That's the sense we get from the trailer, too:

Of course, if you're looking for less controversy (and more course porn), maybe you're better off checking out our gallery of Trump International Golf Links - Scotland instead.
