Mr Trump took the wheel of a golf buggy as he travelled around the resort on Tuesday afternoon.

Earlier in the day, Trump Turnberry staff lined the steps and waved hats which said “we make Turnberry great again” as they greeted Mr Trump on his arrival.

Mr Trump took a golf caddy around the course before stopping on the third green to ask a waiting crowd for their thoughts on his shot.
