Lord McConnell asks Donald Trump for charity sponsorship
Former First Minister, Jack McConnell, has asked US property tycoon, Donald Trump, for a charitable donation.
The request has been made just days after Mr Trump told Holyrood he "felt betrayed" by Lord McConnell over a possible wind farm development near his Aberdeenshire golf resort.
Lord McConnell has suggested they put aside their differences and work together to "Trump poverty".
He has asked the American businessman to sponsor him in a charity challenge.
On Wednesday Mr Trump appeared before the Scottish Parliament's economy, energy and tourism committee, which is conducting an inquiry into whether the Scottish government can meet its green energy targets.
He claimed Lord McConnell "lured" him to invest in Scotland with private assurances there would be no wind power developments near his £1bn golf resort at Menie.
