Welcome to Scotland! (or somewhere else)

The ASA just upheld a complaint against an anti-wind turbine ad run by Trump captioned "Welcome to Scotland!" showing rusty turbines, with mouse print: "Photo not taken in Scotland."
While I'm amused by the classic Trump bluster, the ASA's routine adjudication of disputes over political ads--wind turbines are common, but this week also features a union ad--highlights just how different America is in its advertising regulation, or relative lack thereof.
