Scotland Plays Its Trump Card

GOP candidate Donald Trump has been stripped of honoraria in Scotland following his statements that Muslims should be prevented from entering the U.S.

A spokesperson for the Scottish government said: “Mr. Trump’s recent remarks have shown that he is no longer fit to be a business ambassador for Scotland and the first minister has decided his membership of the respected GlobalScot business network should be withdrawn with immediate effect.”

Meanwhile, Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen revoked an honorary degree awarded to Trump in 2010 due to “statements that are wholly incompatible” with the university’s values.

Just a week after these embarrassments, Trump was dealt yet another loss at the hands of the Scottish Supreme Court.  Trump's attempt to prevent a wind farm being built within sight of his golf course was dismissed by five justices of Scotland's highest court.    Commenting on the decision, former Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond branded Trump "three times a loser".
