A university and a political party in Scotland have stripped Donald Trump of titles they gave him. Billionaire businessman Mr Trump is currently leading the race to become the Republican Party's contender to be USA president in November 2016. Trump's mother is Scottish and Trump has invested a lot in golf and tourism in Scotland. However, his recent call for all Muslims to be barred from entering the USA has created a lot of problems. The Scottish National Party (SNP) took away his "Global Scot" ambassador's title, and the Robert Gordon University took away an honorary degree.

Donald Trump is angry that his titles were taken away. He said SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon didn't understand his "greatness". He said politicians should thank him for helping Scotland instead of trying to be politically correct. Ms Sturgeon said Mr Trump's "recent remarks have shown he is no longer fit to be [an] ambassador for Scotland". The Robert Gordon University said: "In the course of the current US election campaign, Mr Trump has made a number of statements that are wholly incompatible with the…values of the university." It therefore took away the degree it gave him in 2010.

Back to the Donald Trump lesson.
