Donald Trump has offically resigned as director of several UK companies that are linked to his Scottish golf courses.
Filings at Companies House confirm that he stepped down last Thursday, immediatley before his inauguration as US president.
Trump had promised to resign from directorships in all his his companies to avoid claims of conflict of interest.
His eldest sons Donald Jr and Eric have taken over control of his golf resorts in Aberdeenshire and Ayrshire. Turnberry is in the middle of an extensive upgrade, which the brothers are already overseeing.
The website of Companies House revealed he resigned as director of Trump International Golf Club Scotland Ltd on 19 January.
But the question remains, will that be the last the Trump International in Aberdeenshire and Turnberry see of the Trump during his Presidency? They could be great places for the odd international conference or two. We certainly wouldn't put it past him....
