Trump to visit UK on June 24 to open golf resort
LONDON: US presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would visit Britain for the opening of his Scottish golf resort on June 24, his first trip to the UK since a spat with Prime Minister David Cameron over comments he made about Muslims.
“There will be an official ribbon-cutting ceremony with invited guests, and Mr Trump himself,” PR manager Lisa McGhee told AFP, confirming the June 24 date – the day after Britain’s referendum on EU membership.
Trump says Cameron has invited him to visit UK
Trump, whose visit comes the day after Britain holds a referendum on its membership of the European Union, said last month he was unlikely to have a good relationship with Cameron after he called his proposed ban on Muslims entering the United States dangerous and stupid.
Cameron has said he would be happy to meet Trump should he come to Britain, but in a statement, the property tycoon said only that his visit to Britain was for the official opening of his golf resort at Turnberry following a 200 million pound ($290 million) refurbishment.
