US tycoon Donald Trump reportedly owns shares in a wind power company.

That’s despite the billionaire launching an anti-wind farm campaign in Scotland.

Mr Trump went to war with former Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond over plans to build wind turbines near his controversial golf resort in Aberdeenshire over fears the project would spoil the view.

However it is claimed he has invested up to £64,000 in NextEra Energy.

The news about his shares became public as a result of his bid to become the next US President.

A spokesperson from Trump Organisation has been reported as saying: “The report clearly states that ‘Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management A/C 1 Brokerage Acct- Holdings’ manages a portion of Mr. Trump’s money and independently makes investments on his behalf.

“These types of investments and the specific stocks chosen by Deutsche are done without Mr. Trump’s knowledge or involvement.”
