Good Luck.
A Scottish university and the leader of Scotland's [mains / main] political party have stripped Donald Trump of titles they had [previous / previously] given him. Billionaire tycoon Mr Trump is [currently / current] the leader of the race to become the Republican Party's [contender / contend] for USA president in November 2016. Trump's mother is Scottish and the business [moguls / mogul] has invested heavily [in / at] golf and tourism projects in Scotland. However, his recent call [for / of] all Muslims to be [barred / bared] from entering the USA has created considerable controversy. The Scottish National Party (SNP) took away his [entitle / title] of "Global Scot" ambassador, and Scotland's Robert Gordon University revoked an honorary doctoral degree it [awards / awarded] him in 2010.

Donald Trump has reacted [angry / angrily] to his titles being taken away from him. He accused SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon of "failing [of / to] appreciate his greatness". He said: "Politicians should be thanking me instead of [pandering / pondering] to political [correctness / correctly] . I have done so much for Scotland." Ms Sturgeon said Mr Trump's "recent remarks have shown he is [no / not] longer fit to be a business ambassador for Scotland". A spokesman for the Robert Gordon University stated: "In the [coarse / course] of the current US election campaign, Mr Trump has [made / spoken] a number of statements that are [holy / wholly] incompatible with the ethos and [values / value] of the university. The university has therefore decided to [revoke / invoke] its award of the honorary degree."
