David said of Trump’s recent UK visit: “When he was over here and he was talking about England and he was saying ‘I’m going out to Scotland for my golf course in Scotland cause people in London are protesting but obviously [in] Scotland they really like me.’ Can I say on behalf of the Scottish nation, we f---ing don’t?”
