Trump tells Holyrood of windfarm ‘monstrosities’
Tycoon in ‘bad version of Disneyland’ claims
DONALD Trump warned today that the North-east risked becoming a “bad version of Disneyland” if plans for an offshore windfarm went ahead.
Mr Trump, appearing before a parliamentary committee at Holyrood, said he wanted to complete his £750 million Aberdeenshire golf resort at Menie Estate just outside Aberdeen.
But he claimed that he’d been “lured” into spending millions by the Scottish Government and might yet “regret it”.
The Economy Energy and Tourism Committee was meeting to consider the impact of renewable energy generation on communities and tourism.
Mr Trump, who has ploughed £60 million into the golf course near Balmedie, said he didn’t want to see it “destroyed by having 11 monstrosities built looming over it, literally one mile away”.
