Secret Service shields Trump from protesters during golf outing in Scotland

After completing all of his official state business, President Donald Trump concluded his four-day trip to the U.K. this weekend with a stay at his Turnberry golf resort in Scotland, his first stay at the resort since his 2016 presidential campaign.
But just as occured during most of his trip, Trump was heckled by protesters during a round of golf on Saturday — and it was none other than the Secret Service that was tasked with shielding the president from the demonstrators.
The president tweeted on Friday evening that he’d arrived in Scotland, and would be “at Trump Turnberry for two days of meetings, calls, and, hopefully, some golf — my primary form of exercise!” But it wasn’t long before the protesters arrived.
As Trump was entering the resort, a Greenpeace activist using a paraglider flew overhead with a banner which read: “Trump: Well Below Par.” The suspect, who breached a no-fly zone rule, is still at large.
The following morning, the president managed to make it out on the golf course, where the protests continued. As Trump rounded the links, activists chanted: “No Trump, no KKK, no racist USA.”

Protesters also reportedly attempted to fly the now-infamous Trump blimp, which depicts the U.S. president as a baby and made its debut during a massive protest in London on Friday, but police did not allow them to do so.
Trump anticipated feeling “unwelcome” in Europe, however. On his first day in the U.K. on Thursday, he told The Sun that while he “used to love London as a city,” he hadn’t “been there in a long time.”
“But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?” the president, who only spent one night in the city, added. “I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London.”
Trump went on to say that he believes it is only the local government that wants him to feel unwelcome, however.
“When I say that [I feel unwelcome], I am talking about government, because the people of the U.K. agree with me,” Trump said. “I get thousands of notifications from people in the U.K. that they love the president of the United States. They want the same thing I want.”
Trump’s first trip to the U.K. since becoming president came to an end on Sunday after a weekend full of newsworthy meetings, including with Prime Minister Theresa May on Thursday and Queen Elizabeth II on Friday at Windsor Castle.
Trump will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday in Helinski, Finland before returning home from his Europe trip.
