Who is paying for the golfing trip to Scotland?

The British government has offered to pay up to £5million in policing costs if Trump goes golfing in Scotland.

Treasury Secretary Lizz Truss wrote to Scottish ministers to inform them they’d foot any police costs.

The interim chief constable of Police Scotland, Iain Livingstone, said the force would need up to 5,000 extra officers costing around £5million.

The country’s new justice secretary Humza Yousaf said it was “completely unacceptable” to expect Scottish taxpayers to cover the bill.
