See why many people in Scotland hate Trump. Instead of furthering his goals by making nice with his neighbors, Trump chose to agitate, intimidate and harass.

YouTube video (click on image):

Trump purchased 1,800 acres of land in Aberdeenshire, Scotland around 2005, and developed the property himself. Trump promised to invest anywhere from $1 billion to $2 billion and create 6,000 to 7,000 jobs as part of a golf and tourism mecca. Only about 93 jobs have been created. It remains a shadow of the project Trump originally said he would deliver. Before the course was even completed, Trump jumped into a series of pointless brawls with the locals. Instead of making nice with his new neighbors, he chose to harass, intimidate and insult.
