In this David and Goliath tale, a group of proud Scottish homeowners take on Donald Trump as he gets set to destroy the crown jewels of Scotland's national heritage in order to build a luxury golf resort. The local residents make their last stand in the face of police harassment, constant legal threats and interruption of their water and electricity. Director Anthony Baxter himself becomes international news after being thrown in jail. The film captures the cultural chasm between the glamorous, jet-setting and media savvy Donald Trump and a deeply rooted Scottish community. For the tycoon, the golf course is just another deal, with a possible billion-dollar payoff. For the residents, it represents the destruction of a globally unique landscape that has been the backdrop of their lives. At turns funny, inspiring and heartbreaking, You've Been Trumped is both an entertaining, can't-believe-it's-true tale and an environmental parable for our celebrity-driven times.

Really horriable to watch. It left me wondering two things.... how much was Scotland actually paid to let thier ecosystem be torn to crap like that? And now that Trumps backing out, what happens with all the destruction?

These commentators "Aquilea777" and "brooklynone" are either dumb or ultra conservatives or otherwise interested in some murky plans - they call Nature "primitive" and the destruction of it "progress." I have to disenchant them, if they are Trump fans: because I grew up in Communism in Europe and they taught us in primary school that "Man conquers Nature," and they destroyed Nature alright; they literally did the same as Trump is doing in Scotland and in the USA by withdrawing funds from the protection of wildlife. How come, see, that the Communists and the Trumpist profit-mad capitalists have the same slogans? I have news for you: the two systems originate from the same source, they are only 2 sides of it, which will unite, according to Plan. The manager of the Ford Foundation said that they are working on uniting the two systems (Capitalism and Communism) seamlessly. So, the slogan that "Man Conquers Nature" and that the destruction of Nature is "progress" is a common slogan for the hidden system, of which Trump and Communism are visible parts. Did you notice that Trump usually wears red ties? It's a symbolic sign for insiders of the Plan that he works for a World Revolution. A new, scientific dictatorship. And those of that esoteric sect believe that Man can make a new Creation and become Gods of it. Trump is not the inventor of that "progress," he is a natural bully, that's why he was chosen by background forces to carry forward the Plan, which makes them "Guardians of the Universe, and Gods on Earth." My view is that we inherited a System from our Creator and those who destroy that System, will be destroyed ultimately by that System. I am not religious, but I found one passage in the Book of Revelations, which is a deep insight, and which says this: "God destroys those that destroy the earth." This is an intuitive insight, and I guess it's true. Trump seems not to have read that passage of Revelations, which is a logical conclusion, if one thinks. The original System we inherited is perfect balance, and if too many golf courses will be built, it causes a dangerous imbalance, which will hit back on the violators of the System. By the way, it's known already that the creation of Communism was financed by the biggest bankers, the Trump-like guys of the West. Read the book of Ted Flynn: "Hope Of The Wicked" (2001) Now, what about that "Russian connection of Trump?"

An excellent documentary, evidence based on the impact of Trump's golf course on the environment and the local population. The film would have benefited from a greater emphasis on the destruction of this unique ecosystem.

Golf-haters revile Trump for building golf course in primitive Scotland. A collection of disorganized snippets. Don't waste your time. Better anti-Trump poison can surely be found elsewhere.

To all you plebeians and other left wing malcontents it is United States President elect Donald Trump now. This documentary is nothing but a bunch of neo Marxist Leninist nonsense. Progress is bad. Development is bad. Creating wealth is bad. This movie is so one sided it's laughable. No one is interviewed that likes the idea of his golf club being built and that alone shows the limitations of this documentary. Like the golfers who are going to GOLF there which probably doesn't include many of the Scottish lower classes living around it that got interviewed for this movie. (One can only assume based on this video that Scotland, which invented golf, has zero golfers?) Of course, if you really want to validate the fatuousness of this "documentary" just read the Marxist Leninist conniption fits written here which gives you some indication of the total lack of objectivity of this movie. One more time! Donald Trump President-elect of The United States of America!

This movie gives us a glimpse of what we can expect if Trump is elected. He is portrayed as an arrogant, unpleasant, lying, petty, unscrupulous self-centered , bully, I question his business acumen. Building a golf course in Scotland so customers can fly in to play a round of golf doesn't seem like a great money making idea to me.

Interesting...But to keep things in perspective and avoid hypocritical indignation, I thought *deeply* about whether I'm patronizing big city malls, living in that "modern" condo, or vacationing at that lush resort (some with a golf course) whereby the big- time- heartless-money -making developers have "demolished nature" , displaced exotic animals, and in some cases forced out the people who were already residing there... I mean, just a thought..and the research is alarming!!!
Oh Horrors!!!! could it be that I have directly supported, and heavens, benefited from this type of behavior?...Mirror, mirror!!! So how can I get incensed??, "call out names", and ignore the objective position?? Next.

Was hard to watch all that wonderful scenic view get torn to bits, esp the bulldozing of the trees and being dumped into trucks. This man doesn't give a rat's behind what anyone thinks and so many Americans think he's going to look out for them? He will step on them like ants only to create his "vision" and not give one thought to the little people aka every day Joes who work hard and struggle to pay bills. He's cold and heartless.

This shows that Donald Trumpfucker doesn't give one rats ass about the environment! FUCK YOU FRECKLED LUMP!

This shows who the people of the Republican party our voting in. This man that will take land from people. If this is what America is coming to, we need to stop this man now! Support Ted Cruz who believes in everything that our Founding Fathers believed in. Highly recommended.
