Donald Trump Promises UK Trade Deal Because 'You Don't Hear The Word Britain Anymore'

"They'd no longer have the British Open".

Asked whether such an agreement "could kick in pretty much as soon as Brexit happens", Trump said "as soon as it's appropriate to have it kick in, absolutely". Mr Trump has a number of financial interests in Scotland, including the much-fought over golf course on the coast of Aberdeenshire.

Comedian and anti-Trump protester Janey Godley, who famously held up a "Trump is a cunt" sign at Trump's visit to one of his Scottish Golf resorts during his presidential campaign a year ago, said: "I think Trump would do better to speak through his communications officer who this week is Scott Baio and next week could be the guy who washes his hairpiece".

The president, added: "One little thing, what would they do with the British Open if they ever got out?"

In a transcript of the interview published on Politico yesterday, he said: "Is Scotland going to go for the vote, by the way?"

He said that this "would be terrible", adding: "They just went through hell".

Meanwhile, President Trump tweeted: "Our special relationship w/ United Kingdom is going to be even better". But when I was with President Xi, who I have a very good relationship with, I said: 'Do me a favour.

He said: "It'll be a big trade deal - much, much more business than we do right now, many, many times". You don't see it.

"We have a very good relationship". Well, you know, you could say that's a friendly act or an unfriendly act. "The word reciprocal, to me, is very important", he explained. But it's very protectionist.

US President Donald Trump has suggested that Scottish independence would be "terrible", voicing fears about the future of the Open golf championship.

"I have a very good relationship with the European Union people and all, but they are very, very protectionist", Trump said.

The US president also made clear he wasn't a fan of the bloc, on the basis it is "very, very protectionist" - he claimed US farmers have difficulty selling their products to the continent due to EU regulations, while no such barriers to European products existed Stateside. "Keep it in Scotland".

George Irvine, manager of the Craw's Nest pub, said: "I remember last time we had coaches coming for breakfast, caddies coming in for drinks and people renting houses nearby using us so the event definitely brings more income".
