After the American president said that he felt "unwelcome" in London with mayor Sadiq Khan giving permission for an inflatable baby Trump to fly over the city's skies during his visit, Trump was greeted in an equally ingenious manner when he arrived at his Turnberry golf resort in Scotland.
Despite a £5m security operation to keep protesters away from the presidential party, the paraglider flew past police snipers and in front of the hotel, trailing a banner reading "Trump: well below par #resist".
The protest against Trump's immigration and environmental policies was staged by Greenpeace, an environmental activist group. In a statement, Greenpeace indicated that the stunt forced Trump to take cover: "As the glider appears overhead, the president can be seen making for the entrance, breaking into a trot".

Some walking by viewed the demonstration as a waste of time. Trump said on Twitter. "They say he hates women and is racist, but we've got people like that here too".
Some protesters dressed up for the occasion, with one couple adorning Mexican-themed costumes and carrying a donkey pinata named "Donald", and others dressed as caricature versions of Mr Trump himself.
