Hate­ful ru­mour?

The Scotsman - - Perspective / Letters To The Editor -

US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump ‘hates’ Scot­land’s First Min­is­ter Nicola Stur­geon, it has been claimed by a for­mer UK Gov­ern­ment ad­viser.

I’m sure Trump hates all in­tel­li­gent, suc­cess­ful, ar­tic­u­late women.

Not sure if Trump hates Stur­geon, it’s sec­ond­hand in­for­ma­tion, it isn’t some­thing we have heard him say, al­though we do know Stur­geon hates Trump be­cause she con­tin­ues to tell us she does.

Don­ald “hates” Nicola. Nicola “hates” Don­ald. What a sad state of af­fairs. As if there isn’t enough hate in the world. Shakes head in despair.


Does not like strong women. Prefers the kind he can wipe his feet on, like Theresa May.


This isn’t news. The Pres­i­dent’s en­mity to­wards Sal­mond and Stur­geon is well doc­u­mented in the States. The bad news is that Trump has gone pub­lic in The Sun about the Brexit cri­sis, and ex­pressed his ad­mi­ra­tion for the Us-born for­mer For­eign Sec­re­tary.

Nicola has made her po­si­tion very clear on Don­ald Trump she’ll take this in her stride and as a com­pli­ment.

Mr Trump is not alone in his feel­ing to­wards Stur­geon. In a year of be­ing back liv­ing in Scot­land, I’ve yet to hear any­one say one good thing about her or her co­horts. The gen­eral con­sen­sus is that SNP are ru­in­ing Scot­land.


Please – not the word “hate” – that is a destructive emo­tion. Many of us can­not stand her pol­i­tics and her con­stant whin­ing about an­other ref­er­en­dum but if she were to leave pol­i­tics and go away we would be glad to for­get all about her.
