The First Minister has joked that if she were an 'ordinary citizen', she would 'dingy' President Donald Trump.

Nicola Sturgeon was addressing young people this week at First Minister's Question Time Next Generation when she was asked about the President's intention to visit the UK.

It was announced on Wednesday that President Trump and his wife Melania are expected to visit in the coming months.

Host John Loughton reminded the First Minister of an interview she had with Gary Tank Commander in 2016, where she was asked if she would 'deal with' President Trump if he came into power or if she would 'dingy him'.

At the time, Ms Sturgeon responded: "I think America will dingy him before I do."

But when she was asked if her answer remained the same in front of Scotland's youth in Edinburgh, she gave a more definitive answer.

She said: “If it was me, Nicola Sturgeon, ordinary citizen, it would definitely be ‘dingy’.”

“As First Minister, I’m not going to refuse to meet the President of United States should that arise.

"I wouldn’t hold back from telling him where I disagreed with him.”

It's not the first time the First Minister has taken a swipe at the US President: she used a speech in London to talk of his stance on climate change in 2018.
