Donald Trump's disdain for turbines is so strong that he is now urging politicians in other countries to fight against visible wind farms. This emerged at a recent meeting which took place after Trump won the US presidential election. He met with leader of the right-wing nationalist UK party Ukip Nigel Farage as well as with several other leaders from the Brexit campaign.

At the meeting, Donald Trump encouraged Farage and his Brexit allies to campaign against wind turbines which can potentially ruin the view from Trump's golf course in Scotland, writes the New York Times.
