A university and a political party in Scotland have taken away titles they gave to Donald Trump. The billionaire businessman is leading the race to become the Republican Party's leader. His mother is Scottish and he has invested a lot of money in Scotland. However, he recently said all Muslims should be barred from entering the USA and this has created problems. The political party took away his ambassador's title, and the university took away his degree.

Donald Trump is angry about this. He said the political party should thank him for helping Scotland and not try to be politically correct. The party said Mr Trump's "recent remarks have shown he is no longer fit to be [an] ambassador for Scotland". The university said Mr Trump's comments about Muslims did not fit with the values of the university. It therefore took away the degree it gave him in 2010.
