The Donald Has Landed: Trump Arrives in Scotland “The World Asked me to Be Here”
Donald Trump told reporters as he exited his private jet: “The world asked me to be here.”
The British Open is being held on one of Trump’s properties this weekend.
The Independent reported:
For anyone slightly confused as to why Donald Trump was at Scotland’s famous Turnberry golf course, the US presidential hopeful, had the best response.
Arriving for the Women’s British Open at Turnberry – the hotel and golf course that Mr Trump purchased in April 2014 and renamed Trump Turnberry – the controversial Republican presidential candidate was asked by a Scottish reporter whether his celebrity appearance might detract from the golf tournament.
“Everyone’s asked me to be here: the Tour’s asked me to be here, the world has asked me to be here,” he said.
The businessman is set to be at the tournament for two days before returning to the US, with the Women’s British Open the first major event staged at Turnberry since Mr Trump bought the property and land.
The media mob followed him around the course today.
