Trump Bans Popular Scottish Drink At Resort To Save Carpets

Trump Bans Popular Scottish Drink At Resort To Save Carpets

The ban has sparked fury on social media, with one post saying the US President had "declared war on Scotland".

Turnberry was bought by Mr Trump in 2014 for an undisclosed sum.

The commander-in-chief recently banned the local's favorite and most popular drink, Irn-Bru, at his luxury golf resort in Turnberry, Scotland, over fears it could stain property's expensive carpets. We don't have £120,000 carpets in the staff...

A spokesperson for Irn Bru declined to comment on the Trump ban, but the drink's creators AG Barr offer advice on how to remove carpet stains on their website.

Ralph Porciani, Turnberry's common supervisor, instructed the Ayrshire Submit: "We won't have it staining when to exchange the ballroom carpet can be £500,000 ($678,800) alone".

The ban came to light after guests at an event asked for the luminous orange drink, but were refused, although Coca-Cola and other soft drinks are still available.

He added that Scotland's best-selling soft drink has already damaged some of the carpets in the resort's villas, which he now can not let out.

It's not the primary time that Trump, whose mom was born on the island of Lewis, has irked the Scots, with the US President accused of breaking guarantees and ruining Scottish dunes together with his Aberdeenshire golf course.

The piecemeal ban on Scotland's other national drink, long avowed as the ultimate hangover cure, has caused inevitable outrage on social media, and will likely swell the protests already planned should Trump visit Scotland as part of his trip to the United Kingdom in July.

The Scottish Labour leader, Richard Leonard has pledged to organize a protest against Trump.

Trump's latest decision may even increase the crowds protesting him if he were to visit Scotland again.
