The President arrived in Scotland Friday evening and stayed at Trump Turnberry for two days for meetings, calls and some golf.
I have arrived in Scotland and will be at Trump Turnberry for two days of meetings, calls and hopefully, some golf – my primary form of exercise! The weather is beautiful, and this place is incredible! Tomorrow I go to Helsinki for a Monday meeting with Vladimir Putin.

As TGP’s Kristinn Taylor reported, Friday night soon after Trump arrived at his Trump Turnberry golf club in Scotland, a Greenpeace protester flying a motored paraglider with a large anti-Trump banner hanging below flew within yards overhead of Trump who was outside receiving guests, forcing him to race inside with his Secret Service detail.
Update: The US Secret Service released the identity of the agent: Special Agent Nole E. Remagen.
