Trump: Sean Connery helped me get approval for ‘big development’ in Scotland


U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday paid tribute to Sean Connery and claimed that the late actor had helped him get planning approval in Scotland for an unspecified “big development.”

Describing Connery as “quite a guy, and a tough character,” Trump offered condolences to the Scottish actor’s family on Twitter.

He also tweeted: “I was having a very hard time getting approvals for a big development in Scotland when Sean stepped in and shouted, ‘Let him build the damn thing’.”


He added that this intervention was “all I needed” and “everything went swimmingly from there … He was so highly regarded & respected in Scotland and beyond that years of future turmoil was avoided.”

Trump, whose organization owns two golf courses in Scotland, did not specify which development he was referring to.

Connery, who was most famous for playing James Bond, died on Saturday aged 90.
