Donald Trump golfs as thousands in Scotland protest his UK visit

  • Trump Reaches For Big Moment With Putin

"Tomorrow I go to Helsinki for a Monday meeting with Vladimir Putin", he added.

Mr Trump and his wife Melania are staying at the Turnberry resort in Ayrshire during what is a "private visit" to Scotland, after the president had meetings with Theresa May and the Queen. "The weather is attractive, and this place is incredible!"

A pro-Trump demonstration was planned in London on Saturday by alt-right campaigners, as well as a counter, anti-fascism protest.

Wearing a white baseball cap with U.S. stitched on it, the president waved to the protesters, who stood behind a row of police officers on the outskirts of the luxury golf resort. He was also seen posing for photos.

At Turnberry, protesters climbed a hill near the golf course to ensure the president could see their placards and banners.

Scottish policemen and women patrolling the property looked on and snipers positioned on top of the hotel held their fire as the activist did lap after lap overhead.

Scotland voted against leaving the European Union, and protesters say Trump has empowered racists in the U.K., Quartz reported, citing events such as a "White Pride" march in Edinburgh in March 2017 and a demonstration for a convicted criminal in London that included Nazi salutes.

Police are investigating after a paraglider flew over Turnberry last night with a sign claiming the president is "well below par" shortly after Mr and Mrs Trump's arrival at the resort.

The anti-Trump carnival spirit, complete with a choir, bagpiper and tambourine band, continued at the park with more speeches, poetry readings and music.




The SNP government overturned the councillors' decision shortly after golf-loving nationalist Alex Salmond took control, kicking off a short and tempestuous bromance with Trump who called Salmond "an fantastic man". The horrific scenes at the Mexican border are just the latest example of his repudiation of decent human values.

Mr. Trump's first visit back to Turnberry as president also sparked a massive security operation.

But Mr Trump was also keeping tabs on domestic issues, including the investigations into Russian election meddling.

It was Trump's first response to indictments announced Friday in Washington against 12 Russian military intelligence officers who allegedly hacked into the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, Trump's Democratic rival, and the Democratic Party, and released tens of thousands of emails in a sweeping Kremlin conspiracy to help Trump win the 2016 election.

The charges put an even greater spotlight on Trump's treatment of Putin, who has repeatedly denied that Russian Federation sought to intervene or skew the USA election that Trump, a Republican, unexpectedly won.

"I will absolutely bring that up". "I don't think you'll have any 'Gee, I did it".

Trump said he had advised May to take a different strategy on Brexit, telling the paper: "I would have done it much differently".

But Trump's chief diplomat, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, told journalists travelling with him that he was confident the meeting would "put America in a better place". "It's just Trump we have a problem with".

"So amusing! I just checked out Fake News CNN, for the first time in a long time (they are dying in the ratings), to see if they covered my takedown yesterday of Jim Acosta (actually a nice guy)". Neighbors have accused Trump of harassment and bullying to get them to sell land; a local fisherman became a national hero of sorts when he refused to sell to Trump, despite a $690,000 offer.
