Donald Trump on Sunday paid tribute to late actor Sean Connery calling him a ‘great, tough guy’ who ‘stepped in to help him build his golf course in Scotland’.      

Connery, who shot to international stardom as James Bond and went on to grace the silver screen for four decades, died aged 90 it was announced Saturday. 

The president tweeted: ‘The legendary actor, 007 Sean Connery, has past on to even greener fairways. He was quite a guy, and a tough character. I was having a very hard time getting approvals for a big development in Scotland when Sean stepped in and shouted,’Let him build the damn thing’. That was….

‘….all I needed, everything went swimmingly from there. He was so highly regarded & respected in Scotland and beyond that years of future turmoil was avoided. Sean was a great actor and an even greater man. Sincere condolences to his family!’  

Trump owns two golf resorts in Scotland. Connery is said to have helped with his course in Turnberry where the real estate mogul was facing financial questions about how much he had spent developing the site.

The actor was then made the club’s first member. 

In 2018 Trump told then British Prime Minister Theresa May: ‘I met James Bond and I got all my approvals. James Bond was better than my approvals lawyer.’

Connery’s wife and two sons said Saturday he ‘died peacefully in his sleep surrounded by family’ in the Bahamas, where he lived. Son Jason Connery said his father had been ‘unwell for some time.’

The actor played golf almost every morning, often with his wife. 

Trump on Sunday bragged ‘the radical left is going down’ and touted his ‘very good’ poll numbers as he kicked off a two-day, seven state, 10 rally campaign swing in the final 24 hours of the presidential race. 

He had a special message for Michigan, which will be his first stop of the day, touting his economic record there after Barack Obama trashed him during campaign stops for Biden in Flint and Detroit on Saturday.

Trump will spend Sunday in Michigan, Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. He’ll sleep at his golf club in Doral before Monday’s swing to North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.

Biden will spend Sunday and Monday in Pennsylvania. Trump held four rallies in that state on Saturday. He’ll have daughters Ivanka and Tiffany there on Sunday.

New polling out Sunday shows Biden running strong in the last two days of the election. 

A new Washington Post/ABC News poll has Biden up in Pennsylvania by seven points: 51 per cent to 44 per cent.

But the poll has Trump leading in his home state of Florida although by two points: 50 per cent to Biden’s 48 per cent. Trump needs Florida in his column if he wants a second term.

Biden, meanwhile, leads in four critical states in a new New York Times/Siena College poll: Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Arizona.

He is up 11 points in Wisconsin (52 per cent to Trump’s 41), six points in Pennsylvania (49 per cent to Trump’s 43), three points in Florida (47 per cent to Trump’s 44), and 6 points in Arizona (49 per cent to Trump’s 43).
