Threatens to withdraw $700m Scottish Investment

8 Jan, 2016

Trump threatens to withdraw his financial investments in Scotland if he is barred from entering the United Kingdom, as a petition signed by over half a million people has asked. Spokesperson:

Any action to restrict travel would force the Trump Organisation to immediately end these and all future investments we are currently contemplating in the United Kingdom. Westminster would create a dangerous precedent and send a terrible message to the world that the United Kingdom opposes free speech and has no interest in attracting inward investment. [The move would alienate US citizens who] wholeheartedly support Mr Trump. Many people now agree with Mr Trump that there is a serious problem that must be resolved. This can only be achieved if we are willing discuss these tough issues openly and honestly.

The UK government has signaled that it will not bar Trump, regardless of the petition.
