A Mexican flag has been hoisted alongside Donald Trump’s controversial golf course in Scotland, days before the tycoon is due to visit Britain.
The tycoon-turned-presidential candidate has provoked outcry by campaigning on a promise to build a 1,000-mile border wall with Mexico and alleging the country was sending rapists to America.
But in an apparent show of protest against the US Republican party candidate, and solidarity with the Latin American nation, Mexico’s green, white and red flag has now been raised next to Trump International Golf Links Course, near Aberdeen.
The businessman has described the course, on the North Sea coast north of Aberdeen, as one of his greatest achievements.

It was opposed by environmental campaigners and by residents who refused to leave their homes to make way for the project.
But he won approval for the championship links course following a planning inquiry ordered by the Scottish Government.

Is that a walled golf course?
@susborne @MirandaKeeling @TrippingUpTrump Perhaps he'll suggest that Hadrian's Wall is extended!— Dave Jones (@davedhjones) June 21, 2016
