Trump Organisation accuses Scottish politicians of pursuing 'personal agenda' - 2021-02-02
In a sternly worded statement on the eve of the debate in the Scottish Parliament, the former US president's firm dismissed the MSP spearheading the calls for the Scottish Government to pursue an Unexplained Wealth Order (UWO) as a "national embarrassment."
The statement, issued by Eric Trump, executive vice president of his father's company, accused elected representatives of investigating Mr Trump's companies at the expense of its response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
It also claimed that by purchasing the world-famous Turnberry resort - a deal that will be the focus of tomorrow's debate - the Trump Organisation had rescued a "national treasure on the brink of collapse."
The Holyrood debate, which has been brought by Patrick Harvie, co-convenor of the Scottish Greens, will hear arguments for ministers to apply to the Court of Session and act on growing concerns over how Mr Trump's holdings in Scotland were acquired.
