US BILLIONAIRE Donald Trump was so confident he would get permission for his £750million golf resort in Aberdeenshire that he told his architects their plans would be approved – before they were even drawn up.

In a documentary to be screened across Scotland next week, he talks about his passion for his mother’s Scottish homeland – and for his proposals at the Menie Estate, near Aberdeen.

The film follows Mr Trump, his development team and his family as they fought to win planning permission for “the world’s greatest golf course”.
