Billionaire Donald Trump has accused Alex Salmond of trying to "destroy" Scotland’s coastline.
In an online video, called From the Desk of Donald Trump, the businessman has a two minute rant against the First Minister.
The tycoon has already said he will not finish building his golf development in Menie, Aberdeenshire unless proposals for a nearby offshore wind farm are changed.
The Scottish Government recently announced a deal with Samsung to develop and build turbines in Fife.
But Mr Trump is not happy with the proposed development and claims it is the worst thing to ever happen to Scotland.
He said: "They are horrible looking structures. They make noise, they kill birds in their thousands, they are really destructive and I don’t care who the environmentalist is, they are not good.
"In the case of Scotland they are going crazy with trying to put them up all over the place and everyone’s going crazy trying to take them down. Some countries have totally given up with the turbines because the experience has been so bad.
"But Scotland has a group of leaders, one in particular, who is just foisting them on the people and it’s really, really sad. They want to build thousands of windmills in the waters that surround the most beautiful shoreline probably anywhere in the world. It has to be stopped.
"I actually made the statement that never before in the history of Scotland has a bigger disaster taken place."
The Scottish government won't comment on the accusations but claim the waters around our coastline have great potential for renewable energy.
