Trump To Give Away Electric Smart Cars To Sweeten Golf Course Plans

Wait a minute, I thought Donald Trump lost this battle? Back in November, Scottish officials rejected Trump’s plans to build a more than $2 billion golf resort complete with two 18-hole courses, a luxurious 450-bedroom hotel, 950 vacation homes, 36 golf villas and 500 upscale homes. The 1,400 acres of “spectacular sand dunes” at Balmedie Beach in northeast Scotland are considered a national treasure, and residents were rather loathe to see the real estate mogul want to ruin them.

Turns out, you can’t keen the Donald down and out for long…

Plans are once more under consideration for turning the beautiful location into a resort — with promises being thrown around to make the development as sustainable and earth-friendly as possible. To paint an even darker shade of green, Trump is also working to offer every new homeowner on the site an electric Smart car. “It is an idea we are giving a great deal of consideration to, and we are in talks with the manufacturers for a bulk-buy deal,” said project director Neil Hobday. “It is just one aspect of the plans for sustainability we have for the resort, and we are giving it serious thought.”

Meh. Sad to see this place be turned into a golf course, right? Here’s to hoping they stay true to their plans to develop as green as possible.
