Primera ministra de Escocia advierte que no se dejará entrar al país a Donald Trump para que juegue golf

Read in English

Donald Trump no tiene planes de viajar a Escocia, afirmó la Casa Blanca, en medio de informes que señalan que el presidente de Estados Unidos planeaba viajar a Turnberry para escapar de la toma de protesta de Joe Biden a finales de este mes.

En un comunicado dirigido a Independent, la secretaria de prensa de la Casa Blanca, Kayleigh McEnany, declaró que esos informes "no eran precisos" y que "el presidente Trump no tiene planes de viajar a Escocia".

La negativa se produce después de que la primera ministra de Escocia, Nicola Sturgeon, sugiriera que Trump no podría visitar Turnberry para jugar al golf, debido a las restricciones locales de la pandemia de coronavirus.

"Venir a jugar golf no es lo que yo consideraría un propósito esencial", comentó Sturgeon.

La Casa Blanca se había negado a desmentir los informes de que un aeropuerto en Prestwick, cerca del resort Turnberry de Trump, se estaba preparando para la llegada del presidente de Estados Unidos el día antes de la ibnvestidura de Biden.

“No tengo idea de cuáles son los planes de viaje de Donald Trump, les alegrará saberlo”, agregó Sturgeon.

“Deseo y espero que su plan de viaje inmediato sea salir de la Casa Blanca, pero más allá de eso, no sé.

“No permitimos que la gente entre a Escocia ahora sin un propósito esencial, que se aplicaría a él, al igual que se aplica a todos los demás”.
