Man arrested over paraglider protest at Trump resort

Man arrested over paraglider protest at Trump resort

This visit is likely to be less dramatic, as he spends the weekend out of the spotlight.

Describing golf as "my primary form of exercise", Trump tweeted: "The weather is handsome, and this place is incredible! Tomorrow I go to Helsinki for a Monday meeting with Vladimir Putin", he added.

Trump then resumes his game. He was also seen posing for photos. A line of police, some on horseback, separated the protesters from the golf course. Snipers perched atop a nearby tower overlooking the vast property.

Before his United Kingdom visit, Trump had spent 125 days at his golf properties during his presidency, according to NBC News, but the precise number of times he has actually played golf is hard to track as trips have mainly been weekend private visits.

U.S. President Donald Trump arrived in Scotland at his resort in Turnberry to play golf as thousands took to the streets in Edinburgh and Glasgow to oppose his visit.

The banner read "Trump Well Below Par" and the stunt was orchestrated by environmental group Greenpeace shortly after the U.S. president arrived at the Ayrshire hotel on Friday.

Tens of thousands also protested in London on Friday against the US president's first official visit to Britain. "The horrific scenes at the Mexican border are just the latest example of his repudiation of decent human values".

Following the protesters in Edinburgh was the Trump baby balloon that had been flown at yesterday's march in London. Some walking by viewed the demonstration as a waste of time.

Trump blamed former President Barack Obama for failing to stop a dozen Russian military intelligence officers from hacking into emails belonging to the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party.

"The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration", Trump tweeted, asking why they didn't "do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in September, before the Election?"

Eli Roth, 56, from California but living in Edinburgh, said he doubts the US president will take notice.

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 US 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". "I don't think anything gets the message across to Trump, but I hope demonstrations like these encourage people in the States to fight the Trump regime", he said.

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".

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told journalists traveling with him that he is "confident" the meeting "will put America in a better place".

Mr Trump also drew criticism for "berating" a number of British business leaders in a dinner at Blenheim palace on Thursday night, according to reports in The Telegraph.

"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)".

Trump apologised to May for the furore over his withering public critique, blaming "fake news" and promising instead a bilateral trade agreement with Britain after it leaves the European Union in March. Perhaps we should even the playing field next time and you can take my question.

"We want to say our special relationship is with them, the people in the USA, not with this vile bully in the White House".

In a statement, Greenpeace criticized Trump for describing climate change as a "con job" and "myth", noting his decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord.
