Donald Trump waves at protesters as he plays golf during United Kingdom visit

В Шотландии массовые протесты против политики Трампа

Greenpeace Protester Arrested for Trump Paragliding Stunt, Police Say

In this Friday, July 13, 2018 photo, a Greenpeace protester flying a microlight passes over US President's Donald Trump's resort in Turnberry, South Ayrshire, Scotland with a banner reading "Trump: Well Below Par", shortly after the US President arrived at the hotel.

Trump's visit has been labelled a diplomatic disaster as he criticized British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plan, saying a soft Brexit will kill any chances of a US trade deal.

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.

Aged seven, his parents had taken him to try to see President Eisenhower when he was staying at nearby Culzean Castle, part of which the United States general was gifted as a "thank you" from the people of Scotland for his role in the war.

Trump has repeatedly said the investigation into suspected Russian interference in the 2016 US election - which he casts as a "rigged witch hunt" - makes it hard for him to do substantive deals with Moscow. He was videotaped waving at protesters as they shouted "No Trump, No KKK, No Racist USA!" before resuming his game.

In a tweet Saturday morning, Trump welcomed the weather and praised Scotland as an "incredible" place.

Mr Trump will also be preparing for his meeting with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday, his aides say.

Putin held several meetings in the Kremlin, including talks with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.

Trump inaugurated Turnberry on June 24, 2016, the day after the referendum in which Britain voted to leave the EU.

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.

He will travel to Helsinki late on Sunday for the hastily-convened summit with President Putin. "I did it. You got me", Mr Trump said, referring to Mr Putin.

"Why didn't the Federal Bureau of Investigation take possession of it?"

"I read reports where that won't be possible, but I believe after speaking with the prime minister's people and representatives and trade experts it will absolutely be possible".

Speaking about the nationwide protests Ms Robertson, from Aberdeen, said: "I think that it's important that we're not complicit".

"She's a very smart, very tough, very capable person and I would much rather have her as my friend than my enemy, that I can tell you".

Tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of London on Friday to protest against Mr Trump's visit.

The Trump Organization was initially rejected for approval to build on legally protected dunes, but the Scottish government eventually granted permission because of a pledge to create around 6,000 jobs, a five-star hotel with 450 rooms and two golf courses worth $1.3 billion. Trump moved inside calmly as the parachute approached, surrounded by his security detail.

And, as he had previously noted that the protest was not just about what the people of Scotland are against but what they are for, he concluded, "Let's be part of an global movement for peace and for real change".
