After his trip to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Geneva earlier in the week and a stopover in London on Friday, Trump and the First Lady are spending the weekend at the golf resort-and the president went out for a round of play on Saturday-ahead of a much-anticipated summit with Russian Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland on Monday. He was greeted by protesters on a nearby beach chanting, "No Trump, no KKK, no racist U.S.".

Demonstrators protest against the visit by President Trump and first lady Melania Trump near Turnberry, Scotland, on Saturday.

Police snipers were on duty to keep guard over the controversial president, while other officers patrolled the beach beside the course, where some protesters had gathered.

Trump is spending the weekend at his seaside Trump Turnberry golf resort in Scotland. Greenpeace said it told police about the paraglider roughly 10 minutes in advance.

At his golf course in Turnberry, Scotland, President Trump seemed unfazed by a handful of demonstrators.

The 20-foot (6-meter) tall balloon has become a symbol of the protests against the US president's first official visit to Britain.

And neither the protesters themselves nor the placards they carried-colorful, irreverent, and in great numbers-pulled many punches.

It took two hours for the march to weave its way through the city on 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.

The president is expected to stay in Scotland until Sunday evening as he prepares for his first summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, which will take place in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday. "They didn't!" Acosta had objected to Trump dismissing the news outlet as "fake news".

A day after an estimated 250,000 Londoners swelled the city streets and Trafalgar Square to tell President Donald Trump that neither he nor his worldview were welcome in United Kingdom, the people of Scotland on Sunday also took to the streets to let the US president-just trying to enjoy a game of golf at his seaside gold resort at Turnberry-that they felt just as strongly, if not more so, than their British neighbors to the south.

The Daily Mail reported that Scotland's Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf wrote a letter to British Home Secretary Sajid Javid last month arguing that the government "must not" leave Scottish police with the almost $6 million security bill.

A Met Police spokeswoman said one man and one woman had been arrested on suspicion of public order offences and taken to a central London police station.

He told the crowd: "Let's show Donald Trump what we think of his policies".
