For golf's sake stay in the UK, Trump tells Scotland
"It's very interesting. It's like, nope", the president said according to a transcript of the interview published by Politico on Tuesday.
"Very nice", the first daughter said.
Wall Street Journal: I work with a Brit.
Trump and Baker spoke in the Oval Office in July.
USA president talks golf, Scottish independence and America's "very unfair" trade relationship with the EU.
"I can say that we're going to be very involved with the UK".
You tweeted this morning about trade talks with Britain. Could be very big & exciting.
In the same interview, Trump also revealed he is anxious about Scotland gaining independence from the United Kingdom as it could have an adverse effect on golf.
But the keen golfer, who owns several courses in Scotland, was left wondering if the vote would have any effect on the British Open.
Asked by the Journal's Gerard Baker whether he thought Scotland would break free from the U.K., Trump said: "You don't see it".
"What would they do with the British Open if they ever got out?"
"They'd no longer have the British Open".
"I have a very good relationship with the prime minister".
Questioned about when this deal would kick in, he responded: "As soon as it's appropriate to have it kick in, absolutely.
And we are absolutely looking to do a major trade deal", Trump assured. "And it'll be a big trade deal - much, much more business than we do right now, many, many times".
