Trump Leaves Campaign Trail to Reopen Golf Club in Scotland Causes Concern

With the presidential general-election fight just beginning to heat up, the presumptive Republican nominee boarded a plane to Scotland on Thursday.

Yahoo! News noted that while other politicians travel overseas to flaunt their knowledge of world affairs, Donald Trump was simply making a business trip. The New York City billionaire planned to cut the ribbon at an event celebrating the reopening of his golf club on Scotland’s southwest coast. His itinerary did not include any meetings with foreign heads of state.

Trump has frequently mixed business with politics during his White House bid. He used a press conference to promote sales of various products featuring his name; and held rallies at his golf courses in Florida and New York, Trump Tower in Manhattan and his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Fla.

Reporters dutifully followed the candidate to Scotland, chronicling his arrival in a helicopter and the events at the Trump Turnberry golf resort. The real-estate tycoon was scheduled to spend two days in the country where his mother was born.

Trump purchased the 115-year-old club, in the small town of Turnberry, in 2014. In addition to the golf course, the property includes a hotel built 110 years ago. Many Scots appreciate the American for creating jobs in the economically depressed area, according to Yahoo! News.
