As presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump stepped up to the podium at his press conference at Trump Turnberry in Scotland on Friday, a protester jumped up — interrupting the start of the press conference — to hand out golf balls with swastikas on them.

“Get him out,” Trump stated in response.

During the press conference, Trump said he had been told to expect a tremendous number of protesters, but that he had only counted 43 upon his arrival.

Trump went to Scotland for the ribbon cutting ceremony of Trump Turnberry on Friday, the day after the Brexit vote.
