LONDON – Scotland’s former first minister Alex Salmond said that the Republican candidate for the U.S. presidential election, Donald Trump, represents a “real danger” to the security of that country, according to remarks published on Wednesday by the Daily Record.
“Emotionally he is a Peter Pan, the boy who never grew up,” the pro-independence Scottish politician described the U.S. tycoon, and also wrote “Trump swings from public support to extreme opposition with no intervening period whatsoever.”
“Indeed in the course of a single phone call he would veer alarmingly from bonhomie, to bullying, to pleading and then back to a jocular mood,” Salmond continued.
The former leader of the Scottish National Party recalled how in the past when he was the head of government of the region, he had a disagreement with Trump in connection with a project to build a wind power plant.
“This disagreement between us was just about wind turbines! Imagine the consequences if similar phone calls were taking place from the Oval Office, not Trump Tower, and the subject matter was not wind power but hard power – the use or deployment of military force and nuclear weaponry,” Salmond warned.
