US presidential hopeful Donald Trump has said it is a “great thing” that the people of the UK have “taken back their country” in voting to leave the EU.
His comments came as he arrived at Trump Turnberry for the reopening of the refurbished Open venue golf resort.
Mr Trump added his name to the Ayrshire hotel and golf course after buying the resort for an undisclosed fee in 2014.
Comedian Simon Brodkin later disrupted Mr Trump’s news conference by waving golf balls with a swastika on them.
The presumptive Republican nominee was also the subject of a small protest by those who accuse him of “racism and bigotry” during his bid for the presidency.
Dozens of people, with placards stating “No To Racism”, gathered outside the resort before Mr Trump arrived.
Mr Trump was asked about the EU referendum result, which saw Leave beat Remain by 52% to48%, shortly after he touched down at Turnberry in a helicopter.
