Protesters continued to hound Donald Trump during his UK visit on Saturday morning, following him to his Scotland resort and calling him a racist as he played golf.
In a video posted by BBC reporter Frankie McCamley, protesters can be heard shouting, “No Trump, no KKK, no racist USA,” as the president waves at them from the fairway.

The golf course confrontation comes after tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of London on Friday to voice their opposition to the dangerous U.S. president.
On Thursday, Trump flipped out about how “unwelcome” he felt during his UK visit and lobbed attacks at London mayor.
“I used to love London as a city,” the president told The Sun. “But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?”
Trump defends his golf habit
In the middle of his disastrous foreign trip and just ahead of his meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, the insecure Trump thought it was also important to defend his golf habit.
In a Saturday-morning tweet – one of many deranged Twitter posts from today – he said he would be golfing during his two-day visit to his Scotland resort, calling the sport his “primary form of exercise.”
I have arrived in Scotland and will be at Trump Turnberry for two days of meetings, calls and hopefully, some golf – my primary form of exercise! The weather is beautiful, and this place is incredible! Tomorrow I go to Helsinki for a Monday meeting with Vladimir Putin.

Nobody truly believes Trump cares a single iota about his physical fitness. We don’t know much about his health, but what we do know is that he cares little about maintaining a healthy diet, he doesn’t sleep enough, and half the time he can’t get through a speech without looking and sounding completely winded.
In other words, Trump’s golf habit isn’t about exercise. It’s just something he spends an excessive amount of time doing in order to escape the responsibilities of a job he really didn’t want.
On Saturday in Scotland, though, protesters made sure he couldn’t escape.
