Donald Trump blurred the lines between personal business interests and President-elect duties when he encouraged British politician Nigel Farage to oppose offshore wind farms that would block a spectacular view from one of his golf courses in Scotland.

"He did not say he hated wind farms as a concept; he just did not like them spoiling the views," said Andy Wigmore, a media consultant who was present at the meeting between Trump and Farage, The New York Times reported.

Wigmore told the Express, a British paper, he and Arron Banks, an insurance executive who was also a major financier of Britain leaving the European Union, would be "campaigning against wind farms in England, Scotland and Wales" and Trump "did suggest that we should campaign on it" and "spurred us in, and we will be going for it."

Trump's business dealings have been in the spotlight since he won the presidential nomination, particularly ones with family members involved. His daughter, Ivanka, sat in on her father's meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan and was also on his phone call with Argentina's president, Mauricio Macri, according to reports.

A TV program in Argentina also reported Trump asked Macri to back a project of his in Buenos Aires.

Macri denied the report and Trump tweeted late Monday night only the "crooked media" was making it a big deal.
