Scots thump Trump. . . *PIC*

(WashPost) President Trump's two name-branded golf courses in Scotland lost more than $24 million in 2016 — more than twice what they'd lost the year before — as revenue from golfers and overnight guests dropped, according to documents filed with the British government.
The filings, one of which was first reported by the Associated Press, show that both clubs struggled even as their namesake became one of the most famous men in the world.
At Trump International Golf Links, a course that Trump opened in 2012 near Aberdeen on Scotland's northeast coast, losses increased 28 percent in 2016 to 1.4 million British pounds, or about $1.8 million.
The numbers were much larger at Trump Turnberry, a legendary 111-year-old course that he bought in 2014. There, losses more than doubled in 2016, to 17 million pounds, or $23 million.
A Trump Organization spokeswoman declined to comment.
Trump is not a beloved figure in the United Kingdom: Over the summer, a Pew Research Center poll found that only 22 percent of Britons had confidence that he would do the right thing.
