Scotland tells Trump You're NOT welcome! SNP launches FURIOUS attack on US president

DONALD Trump faces a frosty reception in Scotland today as Nicola Sturgeon’s SNP warned the US President people living north of the border “stand united” against him.

The American leader is due to head north today for a weekend of golf following talks with Prime Minister and the Queen after jetting in to the UK on Thursday.

Although President Trump has made it clear he did not want to meet Scottish First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, a SNP chief has told the US president he is not welcome in Scotland.

Keith Brown, SNP depute leader, revealed he is preparing to join 10,000 anti-Trump protesters who will take to the streets of Scotland because he rejects the president’s “politics of division”.

He will also launch a scathing attack on Donald Trump just before he touches down at Prestwick Airport during a speech in George Square, Glasgow.

Mr Brown told the Scotsman: “Scotland today stands united – with people from all backgrounds and all nations – against Donald Trump.

“We will send a message to Donald Trump that Scotland rejects the abhorrent treatment of little children on the US-Mexican border.

“Scotland opposes his attempt to wreck the Paris Climate Agreement and his vilification of Muslims. We also oppose his barbaric language and treatment of women. Our message will be clear: Scotland rejects Trump’s politics of division and hatred and we stand with our friends in the US who oppose him.”

The US president and the First Lady are expected to stay at his Turnberry golf resort in Ayrshire.

During his visit, he could attend one or both of his two golf courses but furious protests are set to take place at both on Saturday.

A rally is being organised by the Aberdeen Trade Union Congress for the Trump International Links at Balmedie at 11am, just up the coast from Aberdeen, with another set to take place outside the Trump Turnberry resort in Ayrshire, where he is reported to be staying.

Planned protests also include a rally in Glasgow’s George Square on Friday and a national demonstration at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh on Saturday along with a “Carnival of Resistance” in the Meadows area of the city.

The SNP’s Westminster leader Ian Blackford added: “Trump will go back to America with a clear message that in Scotland we build bridges, not walls.

“Scotland and America have historic ties that go back centuries and that will not be undermined by the policies of one president."
