Secret Service agent on President Trump's security detail dies during Scotland trip

UK visit Mr Trump and wife Melania at Turnberry and his Russia tweet

The agent suffered "a severe cerebrovascular accident" on Sunday, according to Secret Service officials, amid the President's leisurely stop at the Trump Organization-owned Turnberry golf resort.

The US government reportedly spent more than $60,000 on President Donald Trump's weekend stay at his Turnberry resort.

It's unclear whether all the payments were made to cover Trump's recent stay at the resort. Still, ethics experts and watchdog groups say the president has failed to abide by his promise to clearly separate his businesses from his administration.

The payments were first reported by The Scotsman, a Scottish newspaper and website.

Since Trump took office, his sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump have been in charge of the day-to-day operations of his businesses.

The president faced a hostile reception while in Scotland, with protests headlined by a stunt on Friday night in which a man flew above the Turnberry Hotel using a paraglider and unfurled a banner reading "Trump Well Below Par".

As Donald Trump Played Golf Thousands Took to Streets to Fight his UK Visit
US pays Trump’s Scotland golf resort US$77,000 ahead of visit

More than 150 USA agents were brought in for the visit to protect Trump during his stay in the UK.

At Turnberry, protesters who had gathered on the nearby beach climbed a hill to ensure the president could see them when he took to the golf course.

In the aftermath of his historic election, Mr Trump vowed to hand control of his business empire to his children for the duration of his presidency.

However, the visit was met with mass protests in both London and Scotland.

Eric Trump, who along with his brother Donald Jr. serves as a director for Turnberry, wrote that Trump properties do not profit from U.S. government business.

Robert Weissman, the president of Public Citizen, a nonprofit consumer advocacy organisation in Washington DC, said that based on past presidential foreign trips, the overall cost of the visit is likely to be around $1.9m (£1.4m), with Turnberry in line to receive around $200,000 (£152,000). The State Department referred questions to the Secret Service, which did not immediately respond to questions.

The State Department regularly picks up the tab for overseas presidential trips.
