Donald Trump Says He Had Moral Obligation to Build Luxury Golf Course in Aberdeen, Scotland

Posted on June 20, 2011

Donald Trump says the most expensive work on his golf course at Aberdeen is complete. Trump says the golf course will open by July 1, 2012 with a temporary club house. Trump says he will dedicate the course to his mother. Trump also criticized the press for failing to tell the story of how much people love the golf course. The project is reportedly costing 750 million pounds, which is about $1.2 billion U.S. The website for Trump's luxury golf course in Aberdeen, Scotland can be found here.

Trump says, "I felt I had a moral obligation to build this great golf course after what we all went through together. Even though the climate was terrible two years - the worst since the great depression. Because we are very solid financially, I said, 'Let's build it anyway."
