President Donald Trump mourned the loss of "legendary" actor Sean Connery, 90, remembering him as a "tough character" who had helped him gain approval for a Scotland development.

Trump tweeted Sunday morning:

"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...."

Adding an ensuing tweet:

"....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!"

In a varied career, Connery played James Bond seven times, starting with "Dr. No" in 1962. His portrayal defined the suave secret agent for a generation of fans.

He also had major roles in films including "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," "Highlander," "The Hunt for Red October," and "The Rock."

Connery was also known as a 'passionate' golfer.
