SNP accused of hypocrisy for funding Glasgow Prestwick airport which has links to Trump
A publicly owned Scottish airport is being used by the US military to launch frontline operations and is striking deals with Donald Trump’s golf resort in an effort to stem its heavy financial losses.
An investigation by the Guardian has revealed Glasgow Prestwick airport is a base for live missions by the US Air Force, while its executives have highlighted its close relations with President Trump’s nearby resort at Turnberry to promote its bid to become a spaceport backed by the US government.
Prestwick airport has touted its close links with Donald Trump’s Turnberry golf resort as part of its campaign to become a US-backed spaceport and an emergency landing site for Nasa’s new space shuttle.
