Donald Trump was joined by Rupert Murdoch and his wife Jerry Hall as he visited his golf resort in Aberdeenshire.

During his visit, the Republican presidential hopeful denied suggestions he had been snubbed by political leaders during his visit. When asked if First Minister Nicola Sturgeon had refused her invitation to visit Turnberry, he replied: "No I don't think so."

Mr Trump also said "he wouldn't be bothered" by Scottish Muslims visiting the United States if he becomes president, despite his proposed ban on Muslim immigration.

His arrival was preceded by a protest group carrying Mexican flags in response to his plans to build a wall at the border.

Rebekah Brooks returns to News UK on first day as CEO

Rebekah Brooks has returned to work at News UK as chief executive this morning.

Ms Brooks was appointed as CEO of News UK last week and returns to the Rupert Murdoch-controlled News Corp a year after she was cleared of any wrong-doing in the phone hacking scandal.

Her appointment isn't without its critics, however.

Shadow culture secretary Chris Bryant, whose phone was one of those hacked by those working at the now defunct News of the World said:

Rupert Murdoch has just stuck two fingers up to the British public and the thousands of people whose phones were hacked by News International.

Hundreds of ordinary journalists lost their jobs when Mr Murdoch closed the News Of The World, but it seems Rebekah Brooks is to get very special treatment.

'Brooks' return shows News UK culture hasn't changed'

The return of Rebekah Brooks to News UK as chief executive of the newspaper operation sends "a signal" that the culture at the organisation "has in no way changed", claims hacking victim Christopher Jefferies.

Jefferies, who the now defunct News of the World falsely linked to the murder of Joanana Yates, told ITV News: "As far as I'm concerned Rebekah Brooks is somebody who has never publically apologised."
