LONDON (AP) — Dozens of protesters have rallied outside President Donald Trump's golf resorts in Scotland to protest his visit.

    Most of those protesting outside the Trump International Golf Links in Aberdeenshire, on the eastern coast of Scotland, were peaceful. One woman climbed onto a wall surrounding the golf resort, before she was helped down by police.

    Others are demonstrating outside another Trump golf resort in western Scotland's Turnberry, where the president is staying for a private visit this weekend. Thousands are also protesting in the capital Edinburgh.

    New Yorker Ibis Robinson, who has lived in Scotland for years, said she came to stand up against "the hatred and bigotry against anyone who isn't white."

    "There's no way I'm going back," the 61-year-old said. "Even if he's only there for four years, every four years we have an election and there are 67 million people who support him, so what are the chances that this is the end? That's the worrisome thing."
