Trump on the war path over new documentary
Threatens to sue makers of You've Been Trumped Too
Words: Daniel Owen
Donald Trump is at it again, this time threatening to sue anyone showing the new documentary about the problems neighbours to his Trump International course in Aberdeen are having with their water supply.
You've been Trumped Too is the third film on the presidential candidate by by director Anthony Baxter. A kickstarter campaign by Montrose Pictures was put in place to show the film “to as many American voters as possible ahead of the election through a digital or TV platform”.
The Forbes family have not had any running water for 5 years, following workers on the Trump course breaking a pump, and severing a water pipe. Molly Forbes is 92.
Trump International obviously refute the claims, and have “sought legal counsel and will pursue legal action against those who have propagated these highly defamatory claims.
“Trump International has never, and would never, conduct the type of activity claimed by Molly Forbes. These allegations are highly offensive, defamatory and categorically untrue. We have repeatedly refuted the allegations regarding the Forbes water supply.”
A review by Variety said that “If this is the dismissive way that the Trump empire treats a 92-year-old Scottish farm woman who can’t get water on her property, how would Trump, if elected, treat the American people?"
