Donald Trump Sues Town For Blocking Golf Course Improvements

Posted on December 27, 2008

The L.A. Times reports that Donald Trump is suing the town of Rancho Palos Verdes, California for not allowing him to make improvements on his golf course.

Trump told the Times, "I've been looking forward for a long time to do this. The town does everything possible to stymie everything I do."

The Times story says Trump is suing the town for $100 million but the town's annual budget is only $20 million. The mayor of the town says the lawsuit is going to anger a lot of people. Some residents are calling Trump a bully.

Trump believes the town should be grateful to him for building the golf course instead of trying to block his additions. The L.A. Times did find one person who agreed with Trump. The town resident said about Trump's golf course, "It is a world-class addition to our community." The website for the golf course can be found here.
