Protesters tell Trump: Bolt ya rocket and make Scotland great again

Portions of the golf course are visible from a beach where protesters gathered to oppose Trump's visit.

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. She later immigrated to the US, where she met and married Trump's father, the son of German immigrants.

Thousands of people are marching through the streets of Edinburgh to protest against President Donald Trump, who is staying in Scotland over the weekend.

Even before his visit, his golf courses in Scotland had been the focus of controversy.

In 2006, the billionaire real estate tycoon bought 1,400 acres (567 hectares) of land near Aberdeen and promised to build "the world's best golf course".

In an uproarious trip to Europe, Trump harangued members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military alliance, scolded Germany for its dependence on Russian energy and shocked Britain by publicly criticising Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy.

Trump, a 72-year-old former NY real estate developer who praises his own deal-making skills, and Putin, a 65-year-old former KGB spy who cultivates a macho image as a man of action, are due to have some time alone at the summit.

"I will absolutely bring that up".

Trump declared "I am the evidence" when Scottish lawmakers asked him to back up his assertion that the wind farm would "destroy the financial wellbeing of Scotland". "There will be music, poetry and also serious political speeches", he said. It's the art of the deal. We're not going to do it.' " Godley said Scottish people have grit to them and do not care to be bullied.

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 incredible man".

"I think that those people, they like me a lot, and they agree with me on immigration", Trump said of the people in the United Kingdom earlier this week, adding, "I think that's why you have Brexit in the first place, because of immigration".

US President Donald Trump wraps up a four-day visit to Britain, dominated by his blasting of Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy, by spending the weekend in Scotland.

Pompeo - formerly director of the Central Intelligence Agency - added that it's "very important" that Trump and Putin meet.

Their meeting comes just after the Justice Department announced indictments against 12 Russian nationals as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, accusing them of a "sustained effort" to hack Democrats' emails and computer networks.

Mr Brownback reportedly told UK Ambassador Sir Kim Darroch that the USA might be compelled to publicly criticise the government's handling of the case if they didn't treat Mr Robinson more sympathetically.

President Donald Trump is tweeting about golf, blaming his predecessor for election hacking and hate-watching CNN, two days before a high-stakes summit with Russia's Vladimir Putin.
