Thousands protest Trump's 'bigotry' in Scotland; police hunt for paraglider protester who breached no-fly-zone

A bevy of anti-Trump protests broke out in Scotland on Saturday, with thousands marching in the country's capital of Edinburgh and several protesting within earshot of guests at Trump's exclusive Turnberry golf resort.

Meanwhile, police continued to hunt for a paraglider who breached a no-fly zone Friday to fly a protest banner over the resort in western Scotland, where Trump is staying with First Lady Melania.

Footage of the episode posted by environmental group Greenpeace appeared to show the paraglider flying low and almost directly above President Trump and his Secret Service detail.

"Trump-Gonnae No Dae That."

— Protester's sign outside Trump's Turnberry golf resort

The drama, which comes on the heels of similar widespread demonstrations in London on Friday, was unfolding as Trump prepares for Monday's high-stakes meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland.

A dozen demonstrators were staging a protest picnic on the beach in front of the Trump Turnberry resort, chanting "Trump is a racist! Trump is a liar!" as other hotel guests played golf just 100 yards away.

Some protesters in Turnberry carried colorful signs, including one reading "Trump-Gonnae No Dae That," and another saying "Off Yego with a Trumpety Trump." Another said flatly: "Not today, Satan."

Separating the protesters from the golf course was a line of police, some on horses. Snipers were also perched atop a nearby tower overlooking the vast property. The resort is one of two golf hotels owned by Trump in Scotland.

Meanwhile, in Edinburgh, thousands of demonstrators made their way to the Meadows, a park in the Scottish capital where a giant balloon depicting President Trump as an angry orange baby is floating in the air.

Police estimated the number of people gathering outside the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh for the start of the demonstration at up to 3,000.

It took two hours for the march to weave its way through the city Saturday, much to the amusement of tourists and motorists, who beeped their horns in support.

The anti-Trump carnival spirit, complete with a choir, bagpiper and tambourine band, continued at the park with more speeches, poetry readings and music.

New Yorker Ibis Robinson, who has lived in Scotland for years, told the AP she came to stand up against "the hatred and bigotry against anyone who isn't white."

"There's no way I'm going back," the 61-year-old said. "Even if he's only there for four years, every four years we have an election and there are 67 million people who support him, so what are the chances that this is the end? That's the worrisome thing."

The Scottish protests bore a resemblence to the widespread protsts in London on Friday, when thousands crammed the streets of the British capital to vent their anger over Trump's first official visit to Britain. Those protests also featured the "Baby Donald" balloon.
