As long as he doesn't seek sanctuary there! With all the lawsuits in the offing he might be looking for somewhere to hide. Does the golf course have any bunkers big enough?

Could be ex golf club owner when he has to pay for all those legal suits he is threatening.

Get his name on the list of undesirable aliens so he can’t get in our country! We have enough of our own we don’t want his poisonous ravings as well.

😂 As others see us, right enough.

Yes there is obviously no love for DT in Scotland. If he does run away I think it might be to a country which doesn’t have an extradition treaty with the USA. With nine law suits pending he may well find his billionaire status diminished. I read that whenever he does an interview he always insists that he is referred to as a billionaire.

I'm off to find the whole article!

I did read he would leave the US if he lost - possibly Turnberry hotel might just be big enough?? Actually I think the UK would be too small for him, maybe his chum Putin? would have him or China?

Very good, MawB

He's been given permission for a second course in Scotland. Perhaps the local authority will have second thoughts now that he's soon be ex-P

It would be a third course in Scotland as he already has one in Aberdeenshire. Whatever has possessed the County Council to give permission for this new course I can't imagine. He and his 'people' have caused no end of distress to the local community, riding roughshod over their interests and making life hell for several. On YouTube you can find a documentary which will show him up for the bully he is and always will be;

Points of View:
Why was BBC1 completely taken over by the American Presidential election? 13+ hours of it. That is what the News channel is for.
