The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - OPINION -

As we all know, US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump is a mas­ter at court­ing con­tro­versy.

Just when you think he is be­gin­ning to act ra­tio­nally and states­man­like, such as nor­mal­is­ing re­la­tions with North Korea’s rocket man, Kim Wrong-Un, he drops a clanger some­where else in the world.

I’m not talk­ing about his roundly con­demned de­ci­sion to pull the US out of the Iran Nu­clear Deal.

No, it’s his shock­ing de­ci­sion to ban Irn-Bru, Scot­land’s other na­tional drink, from his golf­ing re­sort in Ayr­shire, Trump Turn­berry, as it might stain its plush car­pets.

That’s out­ra­geous!

Es­pe­cially com­ing from a man who pro­fesses to love Scot­land and whose skin is per­ma­nently stained the same red­dish or­ange as Irn-Bru.

I won­der if he will also ban the wear­ing of the pop­u­lar new Vans shoes, be­cause they look like cans of the fa­mous fizz.

If he does it will prove he re­ally has no sole!
