Hot Docs Been Trumped

This may come as a surprise, but Donald Trump is a bully. A mean spirited megalomaniac who doesn’t give a rat’s ass about anyone but himself and his bottom line. If there’s any doubt in your mind, or if you just want another reason to dislike him, this is the movie for you. Anthony Baxter’s You’ve Been Trumped explores the controversy surrounding Trump’s plans to build a huge, opulent golf course on a scientifically unique spot of land in rural Scotland. The plan for the massive development was originally rejected due to the very legitimate environmental concerns, but in an unprecedented move the Scottish government intervened and gave it the go-ahead. Apparently the economic advantages were just too tempting to give up. The plans would clearly destroy the ecosystem around the UK’s last remaining sand dunes, but no matter – Trump wants to have a luxurious place for him and his uber-wealthy cronies to golf. Doesn’t matter that the land will be forever ruined.
