Scottish Secretary David Mundell to greet Donald Trump when US President arrives in Scotland

DONALD TRUMP is to be greeted by the Scottish Secretary when he arrives in Scotland on Friday.

The US president will be met by David Mundell when he flies in for what is expected to be a three-day visit to the country.

Mr Trump is believed to be spending the weekend playing golf at his Turnberry resort in South Ayrshire, which he bought in 2014, although there has been no official confirmation of his plans.

A Scotland Office spokeswoman confirmed Mr Mundell will be greeting the president.

With the president set to travel to Scotland on Friday evening after meeting the Queen at Windsor Castle, a protest is planned for Glasgow’s George Square.
