Will be meeting with many wonderful friends and cutting a ribbon for a new and spectacular second course in Aberdeen. Very exciting, even though it is ‘make America great again’ that is on my mind, America will be greater than ever.”

They implicitly oppose such a procedure that increases his chances of winning the election.
Electoral goals behind Trump’s Trip to Scotland
Trump’s trip to Scotland has electoral purposes. He tries to promote himself in any way and attract the media’s attention. Trump is willing to make any margin to achieve his goals. Trump’s trip to Scotland is also with such a purpose. In recent weeks, Trump has announced that he will officially run for the 2024 US presidential election. For this reason, he plans to start his election activities right now and make the media pay more attention to him.
The deviation of public opinion is the purpose of Trump’s trip to Scotland.
One of Trump’s objectives for his trip to Scotland is to steer the media away from focusing on his moral transgressions and fraudulent behaviour. He intends the press to focus on his trip to Scotland and cover its sidelines. In this way, the attention of public opinion is diverted to his corruption cases inside the United States and its importance is reduced. For this reason, political experts believe that Trump is performing a political show to save himself from infamy and create a positive atmosphere in the media and public opinion.
