The decision was subsequently debated in parliament after 1.8 million people signed a petition to have the invitation revoked, however, it was ultimately Donald Trump who decided not to go ahead with a trip.

But there are still plenty of detractors, as loudly demonstrated by a passenger in auto driving past the U.S. flag-adorned pub who shouted "F*** Trump", to which Mr Smyth chuckled.

Protestors will be on standby to race to one of Trump's two golf resorts in Scotland in case he visits.
