A NEW book detailing Donald Trump's activities in the North East will launch on Monday.

The author of 'Trump in Scotland: The Real Real Deal' is the reporter and campaigner Suzanne Kelly.

Ms Kelly has written extensively in the past about Mr Trump's activities at the Menie Estate near Aberdeen.

She has also campaigned against him receiving an honorary degree from Robert Gordon University.

That award was later revoked.

In addition, she launched a petition to block him from coming to the UK, claiming he had broken existing 'hate speech' laws.

The petition was signed by 586,000 people - which was at the time the highest number of signatures on a parliamentary petition.

Ms Kelly said: "I have reported on Trump's activities in Scotland for many years and have heard first-hand from the residents and film maker Anthony Baxter on a variety of unacceptable events.

"I will have one or two revelations that are new, and a lot of the material may not be well known outside of Scotland, but it should be.

"This is a collection - for the first time - of a host of past and ongoing instances of organisations bending over backwards for the Trump brand, despite the promised jobs, tourism and local income never materialising.

The book launches with a party at BrewDog, in the Gallowgate area of Aberdeen, from 4pm on Monday to which the public are welcome.

It is published by Milhouse Publishers, and will be available on Amazon in paperback, e-book and audio book formats.

Another book about the President is being published the following week

'The Real Deal' has been co-written by former Aberdeen Press & Journal editor Damian Bates.
