Donald Trump to visit UK golf resort as EU referendum result announced


US presidential hopeful Donald Trump has confirmed he will visit the UK the day after voters go to the polls in the EU referendum.

The presumptive Republican nominee will attend the official reopening of his Trump Turnberry golf course in South Ayrshire on June 24, the day the result of the vote is expected.

Mr Trump will attend a ceremonial ribbon cutting at the resort, which reopened on Wednesday after a £200 million restoration.

He said: "Very exciting that one of the great resorts of the world, Turnberry, will be opening today after a massive £200 million investment.

"I own it and I am very proud of it. I look forward to attending the official opening of this great development on June 24th."

The property was bought by Mr Trump in 2014 and is the second Scottish golf resort he has launched following the opening of Trump International Golf Links, Scotland, in Aberdeenshire in 2012.
