Trump to visit Scotland golf resort day after EU referendum

Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, will visit Scotland on June 24 for the official reopening of his Trump Turnberry hotel and golf resort.

His visit comes a day after Britain votes on whether or not to stay in the European Union.

"Very exciting that one of the great resorts of the world, Turnberry, will be opening today [Wednesday] after a massive 200-million-pound investment. I own it and I am very proud of it," Trump said, according to the Press Association.

Trump bought the Turnberry in 2014.

Trump said in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter published Wednesday that he supports efforts for Britain to leave the EU.

"I think they should leave," he responded after repeated questioning by the reporter in which he seemed unfamiliar with the frequently used terminology "Brexit."
