It's time for me to eat my words. Back in March I referred to the Trump Hollywood project in Hollywood, Florida as the "only Trump project thriving in South Florida."

DONALD Trump has urged homeowners who have refused to move off the estate where the business tycoon is currently developing a £750 million golf resort to sacrifice their homes so that it doesn't hurt his "great project".
