There is speculation that Donald Trump might fly to Scotland on the eve of Joe Biden’s inauguration

Donald Trump may reportedly plan to flee the US to Scotland before Joe Biden’s inauguration. Prestwick Airport, which is near the President’s Turnberry Golf Resort in Ayrshire, is expected to see the arrival of a US military Boeing 757 aircraft on Jan. 19 – the day before Mr Biden’s takeover, which is frequent used by Mr. Trump. The president-elect is due to be sworn in in a ceremony at the White House on January 20. While it is common for the outgoing president to be in attendance, reports suggest that Mr Trump will turn down the event. Mr Trump has refused to give Mr Biden a defeat in the November 3rd election, claiming without evidence that there was widespread fraud. A Prestwick Airport source who wanted to remain anonymous told The Herald, “On January 19, the day before the inauguration, there was a booking for an American military version of the Boeing 757.” This is usually used by the Vice President, but often from the first lady. Presidential flights are usually booked well in advance due to the work involved. “Air traffic controllers receive details of the arrival of an aircraft with a special US callsign weeks in advance, but do not know exactly which aircraft is booked when booking, the newspaper said. The President has close ties to Scotland and owns Turnberry Golf Resort near Prestwick and a course in Aberdeenshire. His mother Mary is from the Isle of Lewis. If Mr Trump flies to Scotland later this month, he could break coronavirus restrictions. Trump Turnberry is effectively closed under the rules, according to the resort’s website. The US is now demanding that UK passengers take negative coronavirus tests after the UK discovered a new mutant strain of Covid-19. It is also not immediately clear how Mr Trump would fly back to the United States as a private individual after January 20. It was reported last month that Mr Trump is discussing the possibility of announcing a campaign to retake the White House in 2024 on the inauguration day, skipping the swearing-in of his successor. Biden transition officials said his attendance at, or lack of, the inauguration would not affect their plans, which are being scaled back amid coronavirus concerns. The U.S. State Department said it was up to the White House to deliver an opinion. The White House did not respond to The Herald. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office made no comment.
