You've Been Trumped
Directed by Anthony Baxter
In this David and Goliath tale for the 21st Century, a group of proud Scottish homeowners take on Donald Trump, as the tycoon prepares to destroy one of Britain's last stretches of coastal wilderness by building a luxury golf resort. As the locals make their last stand in the face of security harassment, legal threats and the cutting off of water and electricity supplies, director Anthony Baxter is thrown in jail as he seeks out the truth.
When controversial tycoon Donald Trump announces plans to build a massive golf course in the beautiful Scottish countryside, local residents fight back.
It's no surprise that when a documentarian's camera is turned on Donald Trump, that you'll be exposed to more of the repellent behaviour that marks him as the lowest piece of slime slithering across the face of the planet. What is a surprise though, and just as upsetting in this film about the environmental destruction of some rare Scottish coastline for a golf course, and the intimidation and threatening of those who live around the Trump property, is the bending over of the Scottish parliament, constabulary, and the others in his thrall: it seems these starstruck lickspittles will do anything for a pound. Exposing the fawning of Scottish tv, academia, politicians, and police, this is not just yet another indictment of Trump's crimes, but a black stain on Scottish leadership. Despite the inspirational protesters, the film makes me feel ashamed to have a lot of Scottish blood flowing through my veins. Great to see those who are fighting back against the toadies, and the few victories they manage. An infuriating and great film.
A telling documentary of a bully! This is also a documentary of the greed of politicians, universities and governments and how easily they can be bought. This is similar to tactics used in China to silence Ai Wei Wei.
Perfect example of how despicable Donald Trump is, seems destruction is all this man knows, does not bode well for America .
sigh these times we're in
The documentary You've Been Trumped is just one telling example of who Trump is, what he does to everything around him, and how he thrives - by lying, bullying, abusing and destroying, regardless of who or what he hurts in the process. Trump is the most disgusting pig on earth, and what he is doing to not only us, our country, our people, and the environment worldwide, is beyond disgusting. I cringe that even some of my own family members continue to back Trump. These are and will go down of some of our darkest days, and we will continue on the slide until we the people stand up, in force. Remember the movie Bugs Life? Same scenario here folks. Trump and his kkklan need to be taken down, and We The People need to show up in force.
