  1. Fun Fact: The Leader of the Scottish Greens Patrick Harvie had to go through an official hearing for [blasphemy](https://www.thenational.scot/news/17322731.patrick-harvie-blasphemy-law-has-no-place-in-modern-scotland/) in 2012 after he was accused of such by Trump for mocking him over his opposition to wind farms. Due to a quirk in Scots Law, it had to be officially investigated, and Harvie was the first person since 1843 to be investigated for blasphemy in Scotland, and the first ever parliamentarian to be clear of it.

    Because of Donald Trump.

    Harvie responded by saying [“I didn’t expect the Spanish Inquisition”](https://www.irishtimes.com/news/world/us/when-donald-trump-accused-a-scottish-politician-of-blasphemy-1.2857957)

  2. Ever seen the video of him trying to argue against the wind farms to the Scottish Parliamentary committee where he declares his very existence to be enough evidence of his expertise in tourism?

    The video is [on this page,](https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/resources/idt-sh/Trump_and_Scotland) which looks bloody great on mobile.

     

    *Transcript from the committee appeal against the wind farms video:-*

    **Trump:** I am an expert on tourism. If you…dot your landscape with these horrible, horrible structures, you will do tremendous damage-

    **Member Of Scottish Parliament (MSP):** *(interrupting)* My question is, where is the *clinical evidence* – not an opinion, an empirical assessment; where is your clinical evidence?

    **Trump:** Well, first of all, *I am* the evidence. I think I’m more of an expert-

    (*laughter from those in the room*)

    **Trump:** – I…you know what, I think I’m a *lot* more of an expert than the people you’d like me to hire, who are doing it to make a paycheck-

    **MSP:** -If you won’t-

    **Trump:** -But I am an *expert* in tourism.

    >*The Scottish Parliament was not persuaded. Neither were the courts. In 2015 the UK Supreme Court rejected his attempts to block the wind development.*

     

  3. Good luck getting any money. A: Trump never pays his bills, and B: Trump doesn’t actually have any money.

  4. Ladies and gentlemen, our Loser in Chief.

  5. How’s he going to pay it now that his charity was shut down?

  6. So, does Scotland get a new national golf resort now, or do they have to wait to seize it?

  7. Well done Scotland. Glad to see your not impressed by his bullshit either.

  8. I bet he doesn’t pay though

    ​

    he never pays what he owes

  9. Trump will never pay a dime. He will probably go in to bankruptcy, the first president to ever do so while in office. Another FIRST for Trump!

  10. Donald Trump’s legal bill must be enormous, and rising…

  11. The long season of Trump finally losing his thousands of legal battles has began.

  12. Nobody has the balls to seize anything from the rich. I dare them to take the property when he doesn’t pay. I double dare them.

  13. I’d strongly recommend they not hold their breaths until the check clears. He stiffs everyone, as long as he possibly can, just as a matter of principle.

  14. I strongly doubt that this orange fascist bloody cunt will ever pay a single penny… That is not how Drumpf operates.

  15. Trump won’t pay. He will lie, ignore and then sue someone

  16. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.scotsman.com/news/donald-trump-s-firm-to-pay-225-000-to-scottish-government-to-cover-legal-bills-1-5044290) reduced by 80%. (I’m a bot)

    > The firm behind Mr Trump's Aberdeenshire property pursued a three year-long battle to block the offshore renewable energy scheme, a fight which saw Mr Trump appear before the Scottish Parliament and led to his company taking its case to the UK's highest court.

    > The settlement will see the Scottish Government receive the money from Trump International Golf Club Scotland Limited, the corporate entity behind the Trump International Scotland resort in Balmedie.

  17. A Trump Always Pays His Debts /s

  18. The bum won’t pay. He’s broke as a joke. Too many lawyers, too many lawsuits.

  19. Best of luck- cunt never pays his debts

  20. If the man isn’t paying US fines, nfw he pays Scottish fines. Get in the queue Scotland

  21. sounds like the start of a cunt

  22. He’ll probably just use campaign donations to pay it instead.

  23. How can we allow someone to be president if they owe a foreign government money? Shouldn’t that be a disqualifier going forward?

  24. Keep up the pressure. Make him pay for all the dumb shit he keeps doing. Eventually his russian puppet masters will get tired of footing his bills and all the extra attention just to continue washing their dirty money.

  25. i do not think the big deal is that .

  26. This is world news? Good riddance crybabies. Un-subbed. Trump 2020! Don Jr. 2024!! Let it sink deep into your soul the Trump family will be in power for the next 12 years and all you can do is pout, suck your thumbs and whine on shitty sub reddits.

    LOL
