A Greenpeace protester floated surprisingly close to President Donald Trump on Friday evening at his golf resort in Scotland, breaching a no-fly zone and wielding a banner that read, "TRUMP, WELL BELOW PAR #RESIST".

Mr Trump and his wife arrived at the resort last night as part of what has been described as a two-day "private visit" to Scotland, with the President this afternoon playing gold on the Ailsa course at Turnberry, flanked by a large entourage.

A dozen demonstrators have staged a protest picnic on the beach in front of the Trump Turnberry golf resort in Scotland where President Donald Trump is spending the weekend with the first lady. One woman climbed onto a wall surrounding the golf resort, before she was helped down by police. "However, I also think that a protest is a waste of time and resources and a massive baby balloon is childish and a huge waste of money".

Scotland voted against leaving the European Union and protesters say Trump has empowered white racists in the U.K., Quartz reported, citing events such as a White Pride march in Edinburgh in March 2017, and a demonstration for a convicted criminal in London that included Nazi salutes.

Greenpeace, in a statement, claimed the protest forced the president to take cover, saying "as the glider appears overhead the president can be seen making for the entrance breaking into a trot".

He was later slammed on Twitter for not defending Acosta or ceding the microphone to him. John Bolton has yet to comment on the situation with Acosta or the canceled interview.

A choir, a bagpiper, a tambourine band and poetry readings added to the carnival spirit.

Meanwhile, police inquiries are ongoing to trace a paragliding Greenpeace protester who broke through the no-fly zone surrounding Turnberry on Friday evening, to fly past the U.S. president as he entered the Scottish hotel.

The protester flew a few feet above Trump's head.

Police said the protester breached the no-fly zone. They arrived in Scotland via Air Force One on Friday, then traveled by motorcade to the Turnberry resort in Ayrshire. Late a year ago, May criticised him for retweeting a message by a member of a British far-right group, and the speaker of parliament has said Trump would not be welcome to address the chamber.

"I am confident that President Trump's meeting with Vladimir Putin will put America in a better place".

Anderson finally came through on his sixth to lead 25-24, then served out the victory when Isner sailed a forehand wide. The roller-coaster match saw Dabrowski and Xu fight off three match points before tying it at 5-5 in the third set.

Murray said: "People in Scotland have been so enthusiastic".

The protesters were among the thousands of people who came out in Scotland and England to protest the US president's visit to both countries. "It's just Trump we have a problem with".

Thousands more demonstrated against him on Edinburgh's streets.

Trump has repeatedly said the investigation into suspected Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election - which he casts as a "rigged witch hunt" - makes it hard for him to do substantive deals with Moscow.
