Trump faces another wave of protests while golfing in Scotland

Wearing a baseball cap emblazoned with "USA" for a round of golf, Trump at one point waved at dozens of protesters who were chanting "No Trump!" just a few hundred yards away from a beach beside his Trump Turnberry course. Snipers were also perched atop a nearby tower overlooking the vast property. Earlier, the BBC reported that police were investigating how a paraglider was able to fly close to Trump's Turnberry resort with a banner that read, "Trump: Well below par".

But he may not have escaped Greenpeace's banner that branded him "well below par".

Mr. Trump spent part of Saturday playing golf and tweeting about his predecessor and CNN, which he accuses of covering him unfairly.

The environmental group said it had told police about the stunt 10 minutes before the glider arrived.

Detective Inspector Stephen McCulloch said the protester breached a no-fly zone over Turnberry hotel, committing a criminal offence.

Most of the controversy has centred on his other course, known as Trump International Golf Links.

Trump releases Kim Jong Un letter, touts 'great progress' despite challenging signs
But Pompeo gave a rosier account saying the two sides had substantive discussions on next steps toward denuclearisation. There is speculation that North Korea may also want payment for the return of the remains, our correspondent adds.


"Will be at Trump Turnberry for two days of meetings, calls and hopefully, some golf - my primary form of exercise!"

It comes as thousands of Scots prepare to greet the President by staging two major protests against his visit, the first in Glasgow on Friday evening and the second in Edinburgh on Saturday.

A choir, a bagpiper, a tambourine band and poetry readings added to the carnival spirit. The "Trump baby" blimp depicting the president as a diaper-clad infant, unveiled Friday amid widespread protests against the president in London, also made an appearance.

One protester, posing as Spider-Man, carried a placard reminding the president that "with power comes responsibility".

Trump was told before he left for Europe that the Department of Justice planned to indict 12 Russian actors for the hack, but he still sounded positive notes about Putin and attacked the special counsel investigation during Friday's news conference.

They believe the publicly-owned facility should not be available to Trump, whose US Muslim travel ban has been heavily criticised around the world, but the Scottish Government said ministers do not intervene on how the airport is run.

In this October 23, 1946 file photo, singer Frank Sinatra and his wife Nancy smile broadly as they leave a Hollywood night club. Gay Talese, in 1966, wrote there was "no bitterness", and instead, only "great respect and affection" between Frank and Nancy.


Trump is due to meet Putin, who has rejected the nerve agent claims, at a summit when he finishes his four-day visit to Britain, and said he would raise the issue of reducing nuclear weapons.

"It's not acceptable that a president talks about grabbing women, separates children from their families and gives encouragement to fascist, racists, misogynists and homophobes", he said.

"With these things you get a sense of what the reaction would be - and it felt pretty calm - we came in above Trump and it was interesting to see that Trump saw us and scurried inside when our banner came over".

The president and Mrs Trump then headed to Scotland where he is expected to spend the weekend on a private visit to his golf resort at Turnberry in Ayrshire.

He said: "If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal".
