Donald Trump paid tribute to Sir Sean Connery and said the James Bond actor came in to help him get a building behind the line for his Aberdeen golf course.

The 007 icon died at the age of 90, surrounded by his family, his son Jason confirms the sad news on Saturday.

After his death, the president shared his memories of the deceased star and described him as a great man.

When he tweeted, he began to pay his respects: The legendary actor, 007 Sean Connery, has walked even greener paths. He was a good guy and a cool character.

It was very difficult for me to get permission to build a large project in Scotland when Sean came in and shouted: Let him build the damn thing.

That’s all I needed, that’s where it all came from, swimming. He was so valued and respected in Scotland that riots have been prevented over the years.

…. Everything I needed went like clockwork from there. He was so valued and respected in Scotland that riots have been prevented over the years. Sean was a great actor and an even bigger man. My sincere condolences to his family!

But despite Sir Sean’s support for the project, which was inaugurated in 2010, Mirror claims it was a promise of jobs that was eventually won by then Prime Minister Alex Salmond after he was refused planning permission.

The actor – probably the best James Bond of all time – died just a few months after his 90th birthday.

His family announced on Saturday and explained that he had been ill for some time before his death.

Micheline’s wife later told MailOnline that he had been suffering from dementia for the past few months: It wasn’t a life for him. For the last time, he couldn’t express himself. At least he died in his sleep, and it was so peaceful.

I was with him the whole time, and he just slipped away. That’s what he wanted. He suffered from dementia, and it scared him. He got one last wish so he could get away with it.

Tribute comes from all over Hollywood, and Hugh Jackman and George Takei are among those who pay tribute to him.

Bond star Pierce Brosnan – who took on the role of 007 in 1995 – wrote a moving message about the deceased actor on Instagram and called him the greatest spy.

A 67-year-old man handed him a black-and-white photo with a message: Sir Sean Connery, as a child you were my greatest James Bond and the man who became James Bond himself.
