Some 10,000 people marched Saturday through the Scottish capital of Edinburgh, while police searched for a paraglider who breached a no-fly zone and flew a protest banner over the resort in western Scotland where Trump and his wife, Melania, are staying through Sunday. They were shouting from the perimeter of his Ayrshire golf complex as he played a round of golf.

Around 100 supporters of Trump, some wearing "Make Britain Great Again" hats, expressed their admiration for the president opposite the US embassy in London.

"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", Trump said.

Campaigners also gathered outside the Trump International Golf Links in Balmedie, Aberdeenshire today, but he is not expected to visit that course.

Trump said he plans to raise election meddling with Putin when they meet Monday at the Finnish presidential palace in Helsinki, but has also said he doesn't expect Putin to ever accept blame.

After the American president said that he felt "unwelcome" in London with mayor Sadiq Khan giving permission for an inflatable baby Trump to fly over the city's skies during his visit, Trump was greeted in an equally ingenious manner when he arrived at his Turnberry golf resort in Scotland. Some held aloft signs that said "Even Hufflepuffs Dislike Trump", a reference to a school group in the "Harry Potter" book series.

Many carried placards with messages including "Dump Trump", "Love Trumps Hate", "Tweet off Twitter twit" and "Bolt ya rocket".

Shaqiri has indicated that he wants the move which should be sealed before the Reds head off to the United States as part of their pre-season plans.


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.

"Mr Trump is passionate about his Scottish heritage, and I hope he enjoys his visit to Scotland".

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". "Had nothing to do with the Trump Administration, but Fake News doesn't want to report the truth, as usual!" the president said in another tweet later in the day.

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.

White House Correspondents' Association President Margaret Talev said in a statement that "saying a news organization isn't real doesn't change the facts and won't stop us from doing our jobs".

Ben Stewart, from the campaign group, said: "Theresa May should not have dignified Trump with a visit to the UK". Police estimate the number of people gathering outside the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh for the start of the demonstration at up to 3,000. The Kremlin has denied that the Russian state interfered in the election.

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