NICOLA STURGEON insists that Donald Trump SHOULDN'T come to Scotland as "golf isn't an essential purpose".

Ms Sturgeon said: "I've no idea what Donald Trump's travel plans are, you'll be glad to know.

"We're not allowing people to come into Scotland without an essential purpose right now and that applies to him as it does everyone else.

"Coming to play golf is not what I would consider an essential purpose."
