Despite numerous roadblocks in his plan to thwart the construction of wind turbines near Trump International Golf Links in Aberdeen, Scotland, Donald Trump is not backing down.

Trump said the turbines would mar the coastal landscape and has fought the decision with the kind of stubborn determination he’s become known for. His next step is to take the decision to the United Kingdom’s Supreme Court, according to the Guardian, and the tycoon has already threatened legal action in the European courts if his latest attempt also fails.

"Donald Trump should be using his vast wealth to do good instead of trying to kill off initiatives that will create jobs, boost the economy and help cut carbon emissions.
