Trump says to visit UK to open golf resort on June 24

LONDON U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would visit Britain for the opening of his Scottish golf resort on June 24, his first trip to the UK since a spat with Prime Minister David Cameron over comments he made about Muslims.

Trump, whose visit comes the day after Britain holds a referendum on its membership of the European Union, said last month he was unlikely to have a good relationship with Cameron after he called his proposed ban on Muslims entering the United States dangerous and stupid.

Cameron has said he would be happy to meet Trump should he come to Britain, but in a statement, the property tycoon said only that his visit to Britain was for the official opening of his golf resort at Turnberry following a 200 million pound ($290 million) refurbishment.
