Trump Opponent Flies Mexican Flag In Aberdeenshire
One of Donald Trump's long-standing opponents in Scotland is flying a Mexican flag outside his Aberdeenshire home - which overlooks Trump's golf course - to show support for people "insulted'' by the US presidential hopeful.
David Milne said he will continue to fly the flag until the presumptive Republican candidate returns home from his visit to Scotland.
Mr Trump is scheduled to relaunch his Turnberry golf course and hotel in South Ayrshire on Friday following a #200 million revamp at the resort.
Mr Milne has been a vocal opponent of the billionaire's other Scottish golf course development close to his home in the Menie estate, Aberdeenshire.
He told Press Association Scotland: "I am currently flying a Mexican flag along with my usual saltire just for solidarity along with those worldwide who Trump has decried, insulted and threatened over the years, and will continue to decry, insult and threaten.
"The intention is to keep the flag up until after the New York clown has returned home from his visit.''
Another Mexican flag is being flown at the nearby home of Michael Forbes, who refused to sell his land on the Menie estate to Mr Trump before the course opened.
Mr Trump is the Republican Party's presumptive nominee for the US presidential election but has caused controversy with some of his proposed policies, including building a wall on the country's border with Mexico and temporarily banning Muslims from entering America.
A man has been charged in connection with the murder of another man in Edinburgh.

Two women have been arrested in connection with the death of another woman in South Ayrshire.
