US President Donald Trump has resigned as director of his Scottish hotels and golf courses, according to filings at Companies House.
He also resigned from SLC Turnberry and Golf Recreation Scotland, which own and operate the five-red-AA-star, 157-bedroom Trump Turnberry course and hotel in Ayrshire that he bought in 2014 and reopened in June following a £200m refurbishment.
Although there was no legal requirement for Trump to step aside from his companies, presidents traditionally pass over their business interests to an independent manager to avoid any conflict of interests, which Trump himself committed to during his election campaign.
Trumps children, Eric, Ivanka and Donald Jr have retained their directorships at SLC Trunberry and Trump International Golf Club Scotland. Eric Trump is also a director at Golf Recreation Scotland.
