Donald Trump may be bringing a luxury hotel to the Old Post Office, but he's pissing off a lot of people across the Atlantic with his plans for a golf course AND luxury hotel in one of Scotland's last wilderness areas. The documentary You've Been Trumped will tell you all about it, and it airs tonight on the first night of the DC Environmental Film Festival at E Street Cinema (at 7pm). Afterward there is a discussion with the film's director, Anthony Baxter. We have the trailer after the jump. Beware of adorable Scottish accents. Even though the people sound cute, they're still angry. But, as Mike Myers said, if it's not Scottish, it's craaap.

Film description from the website:
Washington, D.C. Premiere In this David and Goliath story for the 21st century, a group of proud Scottish homeowners take on celebrity tycoon Donald Trump as he buys up one of Scotland’s last wilderness areas to build a golf resort. The billionaire businessman is determined to build the world’s greatest golf course on this protected conservation area, complete with a luxury hotel. The proposal should be preposterous, but the Scottish government, desperate to bring jobs to the region, has overturned its own environmental laws to give Trump the green light. When local filmmaker Anthony Baxter begins investigating the dispute, he finds himself abruptly arrested by police at Trump’s beck and call. (–Sheffield Doc/Fest) Directed by Anthony Baxter. Produced by Richard Phinney. Winner, The Sheffield Green Award, Sheffield Doc/Fest. Jury Award, 2012 Wild and Scenic Film Festival.
