Response to BumRushDaShow (Original post)

8. Not so much a business as a very, very expensive (and environmentally destructive) hobby:

A Scottish government spokesman said on Tuesday that the dispute was now over. “We can confirm that settlement has now been reached – and this has removed the need for the expenses to be determined by the auditor of the court of session,” he said. “Expenses amounting to £225,000 will now be paid to Scottish ministers by the petitioners [the Trump Organization].”

Trump’s staff in Aberdeenshire did not respond to a request for comment on the decision to settle but last month told the Guardian the company had not refused to pay the legal bill.

Sarah Malone, the executive vice-president of the Trump golf resort, said in October: “This is not in our control. The matter is in the hands of the auditors of the court of session and the Scottish ministers.”

The company has recently admitted the resort was never developed along Trump’s original plans because of the global recession in 2008 and the collapse in oil prices in 2014. Trump and his family firm have now loaned the business £43m and it has yet to turn a profit.
