SKY•GETTYBrexit news Jacob Rees Mogg questions May's meeting prior to Chequers talks

President Donald Trump is hitting the links at the Trump Turnberry golf resort in Scotland, where he is spending the weekend. "They didn't!" Acosta had objected to Trump dismissing the news outlet as "fake news".

It was Trump's first response to indictments announced Friday in Washington against 12 Russian military intelligence officers who allegedly hacked into the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, Trump's Democratic rival, and the Democratic Party, and released tens of thousands of emails in a sweeping Kremlin conspiracy to help Trump.

And he questioned Mr Trump's assertion that the people of Scotland love him. BBC reporter Frankie McCamley posted footage on Twitter of Trump, dressed in black and wearing a white cap, waving at protesters in the distance as they shouted "No Trump, No KKK, No Racist USA!".

He appeared to say something to them. More anti-Trump protests are taking place Saturday in other parts of Scotland, including one with some 10,000 people in Edinburgh.

He followed it up with another tweet in which he reaffirmed his plans to meet with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday, in which he has been urged to raise the death of a woman who was exposed to novichok in Amesbury. And John McCain, a leading Republican senator and Trump critic, said Trump must hold Putin accountable or not proceed with the meeting.

"And let's show the world what Scotland thinks of Donald Trump".

In a statement, Police Scotland said: 'Police Scotland can confirm that a 55-year-old man has been arrested in connection with an incident when a powered parachute was flown in the vicinity of the Turnberry Hotel around 9.45 pm on Friday, 13 July 2018'.

The president concludes his United Kingdom visit on Sunday, before travelling to Helsinki for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

But Trump's chief diplomat, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, told journalists travelling with him that he was confident the meeting would "put America in a better place". He said the "stories you heard about the 12 Russians" took place during the Obama administration, and asked, "Why didn't they do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in September, before the Election?"

Back in Glasgow, demonstrator Emily Bryce spoke with the APwhile carrying a homemade banner written in Gaelic - in recognition of Trump's Highland roots - which translated to read, "Donald Trump, son of the devil". Trump mocked network president Jeff Zucker as "Little Jeff Z" following a spat with a CNN correspondent at a news conference Friday in Britain.

The president also indicated he did not expect much progress on the issue.

"I will absolutely bring that up".

"A famous golf course owner from America who, I think, has now turned his hand to politics, chose to take the Scottish government to court to try to block these wind turbines", she told reporters. "I did it. You got me'".

The last of the thousands of anti-Trump protesters in Edinburgh have arrived at The Meadows, a park in the Scottish capital where a giant balloon depicting President Donald Trump as an angry orange baby is floating in the air.

The stunt was orchestrated by Greenpeace shortly after the president's arrival at the hotel in Ayrshire. Trump moved inside calmly as the parachute approached, surrounded by his security detail.

They chanted "Trump is a racist!"
