The former US president's Scottish firms have received as much as £575,000 via the UK job retention scheme over a two-month window, with at least £110,000 claimed while Mr Trump was still in office.

Union officials who railed against Trump Turnberry's "all-out assault on jobs and conditions" during the pandemic described it as a "scandal" and have called for an investigation by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

The former director of the Office of Government Ethics under the Obama and Trump administrations said it was a "disgrace" that UK taxpayers were "propping up" Mr Trump's business interests.
