Allen Weisselberg was fired from one of Trump’s Scotland golf courses today. This is from the South China Morning Post, but other outlets have confirmed this news (Business Insider and Bloomberg).
Trump Organisation chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg has been terminated as the director and controller of one of Donald Trump’s Scotland golf courses. The news comes after the executive and company were charged in a 15-count indictment.
A notice filed on Thursday at Companies House, the UK registry of private companies, showed that Weisselberg had been terminated as a director of Trump International Golf Club Scotland, a holding company that owns Trump’s Aberdeenshire golf resort, Trump International Golf Links.
He was also terminated as a “person with significant control,” which gives an individual influence over how a company is run.
According to the article, Weisselberg was one of four directors at this golf course since 2006. Trump’s sons are in charge of the Scottish golf course now. There has been no reply from Weisselberg or his lawyers when reporters asked for comments on his firing.
I know this is a meager piece of news, but if everything was fine and dandy between the Sith Lord Trump and his Apprentice Weisselberg, why the firing? Yeah, it is just one part of the Trump Organization, but why do it and now?
This is not a signal of “I have every faith and confidence in you Allen.” It’s a move you do if you want to throw Allen under the damn bus. If I was the Sith Apprentice, I’d have long ago gotten my light saber out and taken Trump’s head off by cutting a deal with prosecutors. But Sith Apprentice Weisselberg may be more Jar Jar Binks than Darth Maul.
