LONDON – US President Donald Trump's family business has outlined his investment plan of £ 150 million (US $ 196 million) for the second phase of development of his golf course north of Aberdeen, Scotland.
The Trump Organization proposals submitted to the Aberdeenshire Council include 50 cottages, a sports center and equestrian facilities on the Menie property near Balmedie. The first phase of the development included a championship golf course, a clubhouse and a hotel.
The controversial development, first approved in 2008, was accused of failing to meet investment and job pledges.
But Trump says the next phase will support nearly 2,000 jobs during construction and about 300 permanent jobs.
Eric Trump, who runs the business with his brother Donald Jr, says, "The timing is right for us now."
