Mr Trump will appear before the Scottish Parliament's Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee on Wednesday to voice his opposition to the Scottish Government's increasing reliance on wind farms to power the country and meet its renewables targets.

He has warned that wind farms could "completely end" tourism in Scotland and the country is "in effect committing financial suicide".

Mr Trump has said he would not have built his golf course in the north east of Scotland if he had known about plans to install turbines off the coast there.
