A SCOT has invited Donald Trump to visit his homeland so he can “take him for a square go”.

Joker Brad Halliday has set up a petition on website Change.org calling on the billionaire “big guy” to fly to Scotland.

Brad, from Alloa, Clackmannanshire, wrote: “I know there are several hundred thousand of you petitioning government to block Donald Trump from accessing the UK.

“I’m happy to go along with this with the exception of a one-time easement into Scotland so I can take him over the park and give him a square-go.”

Referring to a popular fortified wine, he added: “He’s a big guy but I reckon if I can pump myself full of enough M/D 20/20 I’ll have enough rage inside me.”

Brad, who has received a modest 50 signatures since putting up the petition, was backed by Cameron Young from Kirkliston, Edinburgh, who wrote: “Donald Trump must be stopped and no one can do it in the same magnitude and prowess than Brad Halliday.”

Trump sparked widespread outrage across the world last week for demanding a “total and complete shutdown” on Muslims entering the US.

The outlandish comments resulted in the creation of an online petition urging for Trump to be banned from the UK - reaching over half a million signatures so far.

Trump, who owns Trump Turnberry Luxury Resort in South Ayrshire and Trump International Golf Links in Balmedie, Aberdeenshire, has since been stripped of his honorary degree from Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen and also dropped as a business ambassador for Scotland by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

His luxury golf resort in Turnberry, South Ayrshire has also been ruled out to host the 2020 Open Championship by golf governing authority, Royal and Ancient Golf Club at St. Andrews.
