Trump Secret Service agent dies in hospital after suffering a stroke

Trump Secret Service agent dies in hospital after suffering a stroke

A Secret Service agent died at a Scottish hospital Tuesday morning after suffering from a stroke during President Trump's visit, officials said.

The Trump baby blimp made an appearance in Scotland.

Since winning the presidency in 2016, Trump and his daughter - White House adviser Ivanka Trump - have resigned from any formal roles at SLC Turnberry.

On Saturday, Mr Trump was heckled by protesters who branded him a "racist" as he played golf with his son Eric.

The president stayed at his Trump Turnberry Scotland and played golf there on Saturday, in between his North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting and summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"This is another example of President Trump using the power and authority of his office to profit personally", Brendan Fischer, director of federal reform at the Campaign Legal Center, told The Scotsman, reacting to the news of the government's hefty payments to Turnberry.

"I would like to thank all of the officers and staff from Police Scotland and elsewhere that worked together in helping us achieve this and in particular those who took part in the protests in Glasgow, Dundee and Edinburgh for their good behaviour".

"President Trump's visit was not only hugely embarrassing for Theresa May, but it also underlines exactly why so many people object to his abhorrent policies and are deeply concerned about the damage of a Tory-Trump Brexit trade deal". Some $2,444 (£1,799) was returned to the State Department a few weeks later on 26 April.

The president and his wife Melania are staying at the Turnberry resort this weekend during a private leg of their visit to the United Kingdom, after Mr Trump had meetings with Theresa May and the Queen. Robert Weissman, president of the watchdog group Public Citizen, told The Scotsman that the total cost of the visit could reach $200,000 based on past presidential trips. The State Department referred questions to the Secret Service, which did not immediately respond to questions.

A spokeswoman for the State Department said it frequently assists other USA agencies in making hotel bookings overseas.
