Scottish national daily newspaper publishes full-page "denunciation of Donald Trump"
President Donald Trump is visiting the United Kingdom this weekend.
The Scotsman, a national daily newspaper, has published a full-page editorial entitled "A denunciation of Donald Trump," in an unprecedented move by the publication.
The piece labels him "a racist, a serial liar, and either a sexual abuser or someone who falsely brags about being one in the apparent belief that this will impress other men."
Centre-stage is given to several of Trump's most scandalous moments of the past two years, including his comment that there were "very fine people" on both sides of a white supremacy march that result in the death of counter-protester Heather Heyer.
Noting that the UK is currently on rocky political terrain of its own, the editorial concludes "Our political leaders might hide their distaste in the coming days in an attempt to get a much-needed post-Brexit deal, but we should not forget what kind of man Trump really is."
The editorial can be read in full below.
Donald Trump's mother, Mary Anne McLeod Trump, was born in Scotland before emigrating in 1930.
