Donald Trump gains official backing in Scotland but it”s from a far right National Front


Proudly waving a National Front Scotland banner at the billionaire”s golf course north of the border, members of the group branded racist confirmed their support of the American. 

They posed for pictures at his Menie Estate golf resort, holding a banner which said: “National Front Scotland supports Donald Trump for president. Keep the United States safe.”

Photos were later posted to the group”s Facebook page, along with a statement saying: “Today Sunday 21st Feb several members of National Front Scotland travelled by car to the Trump International Golf course outside Aberdeen to show support for Donald Trump in his quest to become the next president of the United States.

“When we arrived we took a few photographs before a security officer arrived to ask us what we were doing.

“When we said we were supporters of Donald Trump he thanked us and asked if one of us could take a photograph on his phone with him next to our banner.

“This was a strange request considering the security officer was Afro-American. However we did as requested.

“He thanked us for supporting Donald Trump and he told us that Donald Trump respects all of those who support him.”

The group confirmed there is a divide over the support of Trump within the obscure group, but said they would hold further events with the approval of the leader.

National Front Scotland, which has 835 “likes” on its Facebook page and is part of the British organisation of the same name, is said to have links with neo-Nazi cells abroad.

They describe themselves as “white racial nationalists”.

The group is against non-white immigration and wants to introduce “humane repatriation of all immigrants and their descendants to their ancestral homeland”.

And they are also for capital punishment in cases involving rape, murder and terrorism, and suggest “birching” as a punishment for certain violent crimes.

The group is also anti-abortion.

Republican Donald Trump, a frontrunner in the US presidential race, has caused controversy throughout his bid for the White House.

Last year he suggested Mexican immigrants arriving in the USA were rapists and were “bringing crime”, while also pledging to build a wall on the border.

He also called for a ban on Muslims from entering America, as well as describing parts of Britain as no-go areas due to ISIS radicalisation.

This sparked a petition on the UK Government website which gained hundreds of thousands of signatures, calling for him to be banned from entering the country, while British politicians denounced him in a debate on the subject.

Aberdeen Anti-Fascist Alliance previously branded the group “knuckle dragging” saying there is “no place” for them in the 21st century.
