Truth & Rumors: Trump announces plans for second course in Scotland

Trump_openingMartin Hawtree -- you're hired. Again.

That was Donald Trump's message on Monday, when the BBC reported that Trump will begin development on a second Scotland course at Trump International Links in Aberdeenshire.

Hawtree designed the first course, which was unveiled to acclaim earlier this year. He'll head the second project, which is will be built south of the original track.

Of course, all of this comes amid Trump's contentious battle with…much of Scotland. And, it runs contrary to his claim that he would halt development on the site until the government stopped construction of a £230 million ($365 million) wind farm on the coast.

According to the BBC report, Trump did continue to stress the threat the windmills present in announcing the new course. He contends that they will ruin ocean views from the property.
