BRITAIN: Gov’t Earmarks Up To $6.6M In Security Costs Should Trump Visit His Scotland Golf Course During Trip

We’re not the only ones getting screwed by his golfing:

The British government confirmed on Tuesday that it would cover up to $6.6 million in policing costs for President Trump’s potential visit to Scotland to go golfing.

Liz Truss, the chief secretary of Treasury and Member of Parliament (MP) for South West Norfolk, shared a letter addressed to the Scottish government’s justice secretary, Humza Yousaf, on Twitter announcing that policing costs associated with the president’s expected trip later this month would be covered by the Treasury.

Though Truss noted in the letter that policing was a devolved matter in Scotland and therefore the Scottish government’s responsibility, she said the Treasury would provide a “ringfenced funding of up to £5m ($6,598,045) should a visit from the president be confirmed.”
