No 10 sources have made clear that the tycoon will not have a meeting with David Cameron.

However, if, as is assumed, Mr Trump becomes the Republican nominee at the party convention in July, he would expect to have a meeting not only with the Prime Minister but also Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn should he visit the UK afterwards.

The US entrepreneur bought the Turnberry hotel and golf course for £35m in 2014.

Ahead of the official reopening, the Republican presidential nominee said he was very excited and proud to owe the world class resort.


Mr Trump, whose mother is Scottish, is expected to face a string of protests when he arrives in Scotland over comments he has made including that women should be punished for having abortions and a ban on Muslims entering America.
