Trump resigns from Turnberry


Donald Trump has resigned as director of several UK companies linked to his Scottish golf courses.


Filings at Companies House reveal he stepped down last Thursday, just before his inauguration as US president.

Mr Trump had previously promised to resign from directorships in all his companies to avoid claims of conflict of interest.

His eldest sons Donald Jr and Eric have taken over control of his golf resort in Ayrshire.

He also resigned from SLC Turnberry and Golf Recreation Scotland, which own Trump Turnberry, the course and hotel in Ayrshire which he bought in 2014.

The fourth company he stepped down from was DT Connect Europe Ltd, which operates a Sikorsky helicopter based at Prestwick airport.

The aircraft has been used to transport Mr Trump's family and guests between the two golf courses.

A fifth company he stepped down from, Nitto World Ltd, is involved with his hotels.
