Trump is spending the weekend at his sea-side Trump Turnberry golf resort in Scotland where aides had said he would be busy preparing for his Monday summit

Trump was seen Saturday on the golf course.

Trump and his wife, Melania, are spending the weekend out of the spotlight at his Scottish golf resort at Turnberry, on the western coast, ahead of his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday.

Meanwhile, there were outbreaks of violence in London as demonstrators rallied in protests against his policies, flying a memorable "Trump baby" blimp over the Houses of Parliament.

Earlier today Mr Trump tweeted: "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!"

Protests against the president are planned across Scotland, including one set to take place at the Aberdeenshire course on Saturday.

In a statement, police said they are still searching for the protester.

He met with Theresa May at Blenheim Palace, attended a press conference at Chequers with the Prime Minister and visited the queen at Windsor Castle.

On Thursday night, hundreds of demonstrators chanted outside the USA ambassador's residence where Trump was staying on the outskirts of London, providing a preview of the forceful protests expected on Friday.

"The government needs to take a stand against appalling attitudes and appalling behavior, and we're not doing it".

Never before have a couple of taglines - "Born to Fight" for Mary and "Born to Power" for Elizabeth caused so much rage. The star cast of theatre director Josie Rourke's filmmaking debut includes David Tennant , Jack Lowden and Guy Pearce .

Trump has been traveling by helicopter to avoid the protests in central London. A police helicopter nearly drowned out the chants of the protesters in the Scottish capital as they were planning to launch into the sky the giant "Baby Donald" balloon - depicting the president as an angry orange baby. "Now he might not like the current president, but I represent the United States".

Trump, a 72-year-old former NY real estate developer who praises his own deal-making skills, and Putin, a 65-year-old former KGB spy who cultivates a macho image as a man of action, are due to have some time alone at the summit. Having Trump in his corner is unlikely to benefit Johnson in his attempts to become Prime Minister.

"The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration".

"Why didn't the Federal Bureau of Investigation take possession of it?"

"We urge that the Scottish Government rules out any use of Prestwick by the president or his entourage, and so send the most powerful message possible that Donald Trump is not welcome in Scotland".

The president is expected to tee off with a round of golf later this afternoon. "I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me. And that's before you even get to talking about separating kids from their parents and caging them".

However, the United Kingdom government's International Trade Secretary Liam Fox told BBC Breakfast that the anti-Trump campaigners were "an embarrassment to themselves".

"I don't want him polluting our country like he's polluting America".
