We really, really love him over here.

Posted on

In case you missed it among all the Brexit brouhaha, U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump made a two-day flying visit to Scotland on Friday.

He was here to open Turnberry, his new, multimillion-pound luxury golf resort in Ayrshire. So, as you can imagine, the people of Scotland all banded together to give him a traditional warm welcome.

He was here to open Turnberry, his new, multimillion-pound luxury golf resort in Ayrshire. So, as you can imagine, the people of Scotland all banded together to give him a traditional warm welcome.

1. His first surprise was a "Mexican" mariachi band, who were there to greet him at Prestwick Airport.

They played a range of hits, including "Another Brick in the Wall".

2. These welcoming posters appeared around Glasgow at roughly the same time.

Apparently these signs are posted all over Glasgow during Trump's visit to Scotland. #NeverTrump #AlbaGuBrath

3. He was also invited to take part in a traditional Glaswegian sporting event.

9. As if all that wasn't enough, a nice young man also gave him dozens of swastika-covered golf balls.

"These are the new balls available from the clubhouse, part of the new Trump Turnberry range." What a memorable gift.

10. And, of course, Scots who couldn't be there in person sent him lots of lovely, welcoming tweets.
