Trump Slams Locals As 'Anti-american'
Donald Trump has slammed those who have criticised the reality TV mogul for putting up a massive American flag as "unpatriotic". Trump clashed with residents in Palm Beach, Florida over the size of the Stars And Stripes flag at his Mar-a-Lago Club, the 110,000 square foot (10,000 square metre) residence owned by the property tycoon. The flag is 15 times larger than zoning laws allow. Trump counters, "That's rather anti-American." Trump won a similar battle a few weeks ago, when local residents complained about another enormous flag flying high at the Trump National Golf Course in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. He tells PageSix.com, "They were voting on taking down the American flag. The City Council received hundreds of e-mails from angry citizens - including war veterans - who were thrilled with the flag and wanted it to remain."
