Fair Dancin’ Mad: A Scottish Town’s Ten-Year Fight with Donald Trump

We’re standing on a windswept sand dune overlooking the North Sea. It’s nearly night. The dune joins a series of dunes that stretch along the coastline on for miles, a unique geological formation Trump received permission to bulldoze it. Building anything an SSSI is next to impossible, Mickey explains, unless you’re Donald Trump.
