Business magnate Donald Trump has tonight (Tuesday) announced his intention to seek the 2016 Republican presidential nomination in a speech made at Trump Tower in New York. 

Donald Trump still has family on the Isle of Lewis and visited the island in 2008. His sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, recently made a generous donation towards the extension of Stornoway’s Bethesda Care Home.

Their mother, Mary Macleod, emigrated from Tong in 1930 and settled in the USA.
