Truth & Rumors: UK consultant calls for boycott of Trump International

Posted at 2:39 PM by Samantha Glover | Categories: Donald Trump, Truth & Rumors

After watching BBC's "You've Been Trumped", Kevin Munt, a golf consultant and former UK course manager, says he will never play Trump International.

According to a Daily Record report, the documentary sheds light on the intimidation local residents faced during the course's construction.

More than a million viewers saw Trump’s staff pile mounds of earth around residents’ homes, cut off their water supply and fence off their land after they refused to leave.

The report also quotes a Trump Golf Scotland spokesman as saying:

“We’ve never heard of Kevin Munt. He has never contacted us or visited our property and obviously knows very little about the project and its popularity.

“The film to which he refers is grossly ­misleading, biased and defamatory – no one was ever bullied, no supplies were ever deliberately cut off and no one was asked to leave their home.
