President Trump also faced protests during his visit to Scotland this weekend, where a paraglider flew over Trump’s Turnberry golf course holding a sign that read “Trump Well Below Par,” while protesters rallied outside his private golf resort.

Protester: “He is a racist, a misogynist. There is a whole list, a catalogue, of insensibilities that he brings to that esteemed office, the president of the United States. But most of all, I don’t think he should go in a local hotel in Turnberry. I think he should just go back to America.”

A quarter of a million people also poured into the streets across Britain on Friday to protest Trump’s first visit to the U.K. as president.
