Watch, or read the transcript, the below Video. While doing so who does it remind you of in the present, think a recent trip of his diplomacy to other lands and comments from including those around him. And who it's about wanting the same in the not to distant past who plays on the world stage as an example of U.S. elites, not far off from some U.S. tourists. Sending the message of what we are, and many view us, as a society to all.

Anthony Baxter on Donald Trump’s Callous Capitalism
August 3, 2012 - Bill talks with independent filmmaker Anthony Baxter, director of You’ve Been Trumped, a new documentary about the perils of rampant capitalism and gluttonous conspicuous consumption, epitomized by Donald Trump’s aggressive efforts to build “the greatest golf course in the world” across ancient sand dunes in Scotland. A veteran journalist, Baxter says what Trump and the Scottish government are hailing as an economic boon is actually a disaster to the environment and a callous disruption of people’s lives by a ruthless one-percenter run amok.  read more>>> * * * Full Transcript

Here's a couple of write ups on same topic and frankly one huge U.S. asshole:

The Billionaire Versus the Little Guy
Movie Review: ‘You’ve Been Trumped,’ About Donald Trump
Tee'd off: The residents of Foveran Links speak out about Donald Trump’s golf project

When Donald Trump announced he was building the ‘world’s greatest golf course’ on an environmentally sensitive stretch of Scottish coastline, the billionaire can hardly have known what he was up against. On the day the course opens, the locals explain why the land may still have the final say.  read more>>>

No need to guess who won't be visiting the course club house or restaurants and other amenities nor especially playing a round even to just view what they can no longer see from their front porches, wondering what palin would say if her view of Russia from her porch were blocked by same or similar!

The Donald at work and setting the U.S. example for clear view of friend and foe!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
