Residents overlooking Donald Trump's luxury golf course in Scotland have raised Mexican flags on the border of the presidential hopeful's property ahead of his visit this week.

Opponents of the presumptive GOP nominee living on the Menie Estate, north of Aberdeen, said they raised the flags as part of their campaign against the Trump International Golf Links.

"The point of the flag is to show solidarity with the Mexicans and every other group that Trump has decried, derided, insulted and tried to marginalize," David Milne, who lives on land now surrounded by the golf course, told BuzzFeed News.

Trump has said that if he is elected president, a wall will be built along the Mexico-U.S. border that the Mexican government will pay for.

"You have people coming in, and I'm not just saying Mexicans, I'm talking about people that are from all over that are killers and rapists and they're coming into this country," Trump said.
