10K show up to protest Trump in Scotland

U.S. President Donald Trump gestures as he walks on the course of his golf resort, in Turnberry, Scotland July 14, 2018.

Dozens of protests against Trump's visit have taken place across Scotland.

And, as he had previously noted that the protest was not just about what the people of Scotland are against but what they are for, he concluded, "Let's be part of an global movement for peace and for real change".

At his golf course in Turnberry, Scotland, President Trump seemed unfazed by a handful of demonstrators.

Thousands of people gathered in London on Friday to protest Trump's visit and more protests are expected Saturday in Scotland.

The president's plans for a hassle free weekend ahead of the Helsinki showdown on Monday soon fell through shortly on arrival to his Turnberry golf resort, when an activist from Greenpeace paraglided overhead with a sign bearing the slogan: "Trump: Well Below Par".

Mr Trump and his son Eric played a round on the Ailsa course at the South Ayrshire resort, a break after a tumultuous few days during which he had confronted fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members over funding, given an incendiary interview about Theresa May's Brexit strategy and taken part in an nearly hour-long press conference with the prime minister in which he rowed back from some of his previous comments.

A line of police, some on horseback, stood between the course and protesters. Snipers were also perched atop a nearby tower overlooking the vast property. The tweet contained a video of the glider flying past the resort.

In a statement, HBO said it was "very pleased" with its nominations and the "wide range" of categories they inhabited. Its latest season premiered a full year ago, and it won't begin its eighth and final season until 2019.

A press release by Greenpeace said the group telephoned the police air incident adviser 10 minutes before the glider arrived, telling them what was planned.

Detective Inspector Stephen McCulloch told the news outlet the paraglider committed a crime by breaching the no-fly zone over Turnberry hotel.

Speaking to journalists today after playing golf at the Trump International Golf Links in Balmedie, Mr Trump Jnr said the "foolish proposal was now irrelevant". One woman climbed onto a wall surrounding the golf resort but was helped down by police.

Tens of thousands of protesters staged demonstrations across Britain on Friday as Trump held talks with Prime Minister Theresa May and met Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle.

Protesters also launched a 6-metre-tall blimp depicting Mr Trump as an angry baby that had flown over anti-Trump protests in London on Friday.

One protester in Edinburgh, posing as Spider-Man, carried a placard reminding the president that "with power comes responsibility".

"I think that those people, they like me a lot, and they agree with me on immigration", Trump said of the Scots earlier this week, according to Quartz, adding, "I think that's why you have Brexit in the first place, because of immigration".

When asked at a news conference on Friday whether he would tell Putin to stay out of US elections, Trump said "Yes".
