That’s what went through my noggin when I heard that Donald Trump threw a fit because a Scottish neighbor refused to bow down to Trump’s exploitive needs.
Seems that Trump wanted to expand his golf course in Scotland and neighbor Michael Forbes refused.
So when Forbes won the “Top Scot” award by public vote Trump responded by banning products made by William Grant and Sons, which sponsors the annual award.
Grant and Sons are Scottish distillers that make the single malt Glenfiddich. Trump banned Glenfiddich from his properties, according to a report this morning by NPR.
Reminds me of the struggle of my Lakota relatives who, at this very moment, are fighting to preserve the Black Hills from sale in South Dakota.
Although the Federal Government promised to hold the lands in trust, special interests continue to court Congress for permission to sell off parcels.
Meantime, President Obama has pledged to work with tribes.
