In newly unearthed recordings from a short-lived television show, President-elect Donald Trump is seen using foul language to bully his construction employees and bragging about demolishing nearby homes at one of his golf courses in Scotland (video below).
In 2010, Trump starred in a Golf Channel program, "Donald J. Trump's Fabulous World of Golf." The series featured the business mogul's efforts to construct several golf courses in Scotland and was abruptly canceled, with only one episode available for viewing, according to BuzzFeed News.
The Golf Channel refused to release footage from the television series during the 2016 presidential race, saying the episodes did not contain anything relevant to the Trump campaign.
"The episodes that aired did not contain anything newsworthy as it relates to this election, and we are unaware of any newsworthy content that did not make air," Golf Channel Vice President of Communications David Schaefer told CNN Money.
Now clips from one episode of the ill-fated television series have leaked after the election and viewers can now determine for themselves whether or not Trump's behavior on set was newsworthy.
The recording shows Trump during the construction one of his golf courses in the north of Scotland, where he can be seen verbally berating landscaper Paul O'Connor, handing a chief architect wads of money and bragging about demolishing the homes of nearby residents.
"I don't know what the f*** the problem is," Trump tells O'Connor during an argument over ensuring the golf course's water views are not compromised. "You're a very strong guy, you're an opinionated guy. But look, I gotta make a change if you're not gonna do it ... Come on, get smart. Use your f***ing brain, OK?"
Later in the episode, Trump fired O'Connor over the issue.
In another scene, Trump can be seen turning to chief architect Martin Hawtree and shoving cash into his pocket, telling him that the money was "For whoever you want, or for you, I don't give a s***."
Throughout the leaked footage, Trump is seen telling employees he plans to destroy several homes surrounding his golf course, deeming them to be eyesores.
"I want to get rid of that house," Trump said from the confines of his vehicle. When an employee warns him that bulldozing the home could prove to be controversial for local residents, he responds "Who cares? Who cares? You know what, who cares, it's our property, we can do what we want. We're trying to build the greatest course in the world; this house is ugly."
In another clip, Trump points to a nearby home and tells his construction workers, "That house is going to be gone because you're putting a big dune right there."
While musing about his plans to stack mounds of earth around nearby houses so they can't be seen from his golf course, Trump remarks, "Nobody has a problem with it ... I guess maybe the people that live in the houses have."
In October, filings by Trump International Golf Course Ltd in Scotland revealed the real estate developer's golf courses in the country had lost $31.8 million, contradicting the profitability he had listed in his U.S. Federal Election Commission filings in 2015, according to The Guardian.
The losses mean the president-elect will be exempt from paying any corporation taxes in the United Kingdom.
