HUMZA Yousaf has pleaded with the UK Government to tell Police Scotland exactly where Donald Trump is going to be when he comes to Scotland this weekend.

It’s thought that the president will fly into Prestwick on Friday, and could possibly visit one or both of the golf courses his family run in Scotland.

Thousands of Scots are preparing to take to the streets this weekend, with major protests organised in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Yousaf said: “We understand that many people feel very strongly about President Trump and his administration’s policies, and will want to express that this weekend when he is in the country.

“That is why there are a number of organised protest locations across the country this weekend and I would urge people who want to exercise their right to demonstrate in those locations to do so in a safe and peaceful manner.

“It is clear that President Trump’s visit will have significant operational implications for Police Scotland and planning has been taking place with partners for some time.

“I am confident that Police Scotland will provide a professional and effective policing response, keeping communities safe and facilitating peaceful protest.

“Further clarity around President Trump’s plans whilst visiting Scotland would greatly aid the planning that is being taken forward by our police and wider partners.”

Scottish Greens co-convener Patrick Harvie said the best way for Yousaf to ensure peaceful and safe protests is to “be there for himself, formally giving the Scottish Government’s support to the demonstration”.

The US embassy issued a warning advising Americans in the UK to keep a low profile as “large gatherings” of demonstrators “may become violent”.
