Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has stripped Donald Trump of his status as a business ambassador for the country.
The Republican presidential hopeful, who courted controversy by calling for a ban on Muslims entering the US, was appointed a GlobalScot ambassador in 2006.
A Scottish government spokeswoman said Mr Trump’s “recent remarks have shown he is no longer fit to be a business ambassador for Scotland”.
His membership of the network was withdrawn with immediate effect.
Robert Gordon University is currently considering withdrawing an honorary degree bestowed on Mr Trump.
Meanwhile a petition calling for the US tycoon to be banned from entering the UK has passed 100,000 signatures.
Mr Trump, who owns a golf course in Aberdeenshire, called for a ban on Muslims entering the United States following a mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, last week.
