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.
Yes, you. But before that happened, Trump took on a group of proud Scottish homeowners as he set out to build a luxury golf resort atop of one of Britain's last stretches of coastal wilderness.
Thank heavens for our Freedom of Speech. Trump destroys everything he touches. This situation is repeated over and over and now that he's President of the United States the damage he is creating makes me sick to my stomach.
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 .
