◼️ According to Scottish Natural Heritage, the construction of a golf course by the President of the United States has razed 68 hectares of dunes in a protected area.
In addition to the numerous problems he faces as president of the United States, Donald Trump has come up with another problem in recent days, this time as a financial tycoon.
The Scottish Natural Heritage, responsible for the management and conservation of places of high scientific and ecological value of Scotland, denounces that the works of a golf course of the Trump chain north of Aberdeen have razed 68 hectares of an area of protected dunes by Scottish law.

The environmental disaster occurs after Trump himself committed to the Scottish authorities that the works would scarcely damage the environment.
The one in Aberdeen is one of the 19 golf courses that Donald Trump has around the world. Most of them are located in the United States although the tycoon also has this type of facility spread across Scotland, Ireland, Dubai or Indonesia.
