Trump's United Kingdom visit continues with a golf trip - and more protests

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.

The interview, which was conducted on Friday, came in the middle of a tumultuous visit to the United Kingdom as part of a broader trip to Europe and Russian Federation.

Demonstrators protest against the visit by President Trump and first lady Melania Trump near Turnberry, Scotland, on Saturday.

In an extraordinary interview with Friday's edition of The Sun tabloid, Britain's most widely read newspaper, Trump said May's plan for post-Brexit ties with the European Union would "probably kill" prospects for a UK-US trade deal.

In his Mail interview, he appeared to breach protocol again by disclosing details of a conversation he had with Queen Elizabeth on Thursday.

He asked: "Does Scotland love Donald Trump?".

As the crowd booed Mr Brown said: "I don't think Scotland likes Donald Trump very much". "That is a attractive woman".

Mr Trump is spending the weekend out of the spotlight ahead of his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland on Monday.

Mr Trump took to Twitter on Saturday morning to declare: "I have arrived in Scotland and will be at Trump Turnberry for two days of meetings, calls and hopefully, some golf - my primary form of exercise!"

He added: "The weather is attractive, and this place is incredible!"

Campaigners will also gather outside the Trump International Golf Links in Balmedie, Aberdeenshire, on Saturday, and it is predicted there could be further demonstrations at Turnberry. He was also seen posing for photos.

While many protested on the beach just beyond the perimeter of the oceanside golf resort in Turnberry, many thousands more marched through the streets of Glasgow.

A line of police officers separated them from the course.

Snipers perched atop a nearby tower overlooking the vast property.

The 20-foot (6-meter) tall balloon has become a symbol of the protests against the US president's first official visit to Britain.

The glider carried a banner that said "Trump: Well Below Par" over the resort Friday night to protest his environmental and immigration policies.

Anti-fascist groups and political activists were joined by many others who say they had never demonstrated before.

Trump inaugurated Turnberry on June 24, 2016, the day after the referendum in which Britain voted to leave the EU. The horrific scenes at the Mexican border are just the latest example of his repudiation of decent human values.

Protesters also launched a 6-metre-tall blimp depicting Mr Trump as an angry baby that had flown over anti-Trump protests in London on Friday.

Mr Mundell said afterwards the US President told him he was "pleased to be here" and that the UK's relationship with the US was "very important".

Full of hot air: The baby Trump blimp was inflated for the USA president's arrival on Friday.

Mr Trump denies that he or any campaign aides were involved with the Russian campaign and repeatedly dismisses the ongoing investigation that produced the indictments as a "witch hunt".

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

"A famous golf course owner from America who, I think, has now turned his hand to politics, chose to take the Scottish government to court to try to block these wind turbines", she told reporters.

"Today I think there's a carnival atmosphere".

"I am confident that President Trump's meeting with Vladimir Putin will put America in a better place".

Trump's chief diplomat, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, said Trump and Putin should meet as planned.
