Trump’s mother Mary was born on the Isle of Lewis which is the largest island in the Outer Hebrides in Scotland.
Per Trump on Truth Social:
Will be leaving for Scotland & Ireland soon in order to see and inspect my great properties there. The Golf Courses and Hotels are among the Greatest in the World – Turnberry and Aberdeen, in Scotland, and Doonbeg, in Ireland.
Will be meeting with many wonderful friends, and cutting a ribbon for a new and SPECTACULAR Second Course in Aberdeen. Very exciting despite the fact that it is “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” that is on my mind, in fact, America will be GREATER THAN EVER BEFORE!!!
Pictures of him exiting the plan reveal he is in great shape and completely energized for his 2024 campaign.
Trump’s visit to Scotland is his first time visiting the second largest country in the United Kingdom since 2018.
