The plan was so beautiful: instead of attending the inauguration of his successor Biden, the still-US President Trump apparently wanted to travel to Scotland to play golf. The country does not want to let him enter.
The Scottish government has rejected a possible flight of the outgoing US President Donald Trump to his golf resort in Scotland. She was responding to media reports that Trump was considering flying to Scotland on January 19 so as not to have to attend the inauguration of his successor Joe Biden on January 20.
Illegal entry for no good reason
In view of the corona restrictions, it is illegal to enter Scotland without a necessary reason, said Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon. “Coming here to play golf isn’t what I would call a necessary reason,” she said. “We are not currently allowing anyone to come to Scotland for no reason – and that applies to them as to everyone else.”
US military aircraft announced
Trump continues to oppose Biden’s election victory. Scottish media had reported that the arrival of a US military aircraft of the type Boeing 757 had been announced at Glasgow Prestwick Airport on the 19th. Trump has also used such a machine in the past.
Sturgeon emphasized that she was not aware of Trump’s travel plans: “I hope and expect – as everyone expects, but not necessarily hopes – that his current travel plan includes leaving the White House.”
