  • Lawyers for Donald Trump cited the success of his established brand in Scotland

Despite the trip being embroiled in controversy, Mr Mundell said it was "an opportunity to strengthen vital links" with a key ally and he hoped Mr Trump enjoyed his stay.

It was, Angela McCormick, 49, a college lecturer, admitted, a ruse to publicise bigger rallies and the first of the protests expected at the two Scottish golf resorts Mr Trump bought when he was just another billionaire businessman.

Mr Mundell said he is looking forward to welcoming the president. The UK and the US have longstanding and important cultural, trade and security bonds.

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

Hoodoo Zephyr's frontman Harry Scratch also references Trump's battle to build a golf course in the Aberdeenshire area at Menie Estate in the North East village of Balmedie.

"We urge that the Scottish Government rules out any use of Prestwick by the president or his entourage, and so send the most powerful message possible that Donald Trump is not welcome in Scotland".

"At the same time, we will not compromise our fundamental values of equality, diversity and human rights, and we expect these values to be made clear during the presidential visit to the UK".

'Scotland has deep and longstanding ties of family, friendship and business with the United States, which will continue to endure.

"We would encourage those attending any protests to do so peacefully and safely".
