There are signs that still-US President Donald Trump does not want to see the inauguration of his successor Joe Biden and instead fly to Scotland. With this calculation, however, the Scottish Government stopped them – even before the visit was confirmed by the White House.
“I don’t know what Donald Trump’s travel plans look like,” Scottish Government President Nicola Sturgeon responded to media reports on her alleged plans. Sturgeon said she “hopes and hopes” that Trump’s “current travel plans include leaving the White House.”
“We are currently not allowing anyone to come to Scotland without any reason – and it applies to them as it applies to anyone,” Sturgeon said. Referring to Trump’s previous visits, he said: “coming here to play golf” is not a necessary reason.
Scottish media had reported that the arrival of a US military aircraft of type Boeing 757 was announced at Glasgow Prestwick Airport on 19 January. Trump has previously used such a machine to visit his Scottish Golf Club.
According to British and American media reports, travel time should not be coincidental. Rather, Trump should serve to avoid attending the inauguration of his successor, Joe Biden, on 20 January. Trump is fighting extensively against his electoral victory and is still looking for ways to get rid of it.
