BrewDog Launches Petition To Rename A Glasgow Airport ‘Joe Biden International’
Trump is known for his love of golf, and regularly travels to Scotland for a spin around the green at his Turnberry luxury resort in Ayrshire.
To get there from the States, he usually flies over to Glasgow Prestwick Airport, which is just 18 miles away from his golf course.
But in the wake of Joe Biden being sworn in as the 46th President of the United States - and Trump's reluctance to accept his defeat - some people reckon a rebrand is in order, calling for the airport to be renamed 'Joe Biden International Airport'.
BrewDog is now hoping to urge the Scottish government to change the name of the airport, having teamed up with Uncommon Creative Studio to set up a petition, which was launched earlier this week.
James Watt, CEO and Co-Founder of BrewDog,said in the petition's description: "Donald Trump is scheduled to arrive in Scotland later this week.
"He always flies into Glasgow Prestwick Airport.
"We believe this airport should be renamed 'Joe Biden International'."
The petition already has 9,805 signatures at the time of writing, with many people commenting to back the idea.

One wrote: "That would be totally awesome!"
Someone else said: "It is one the best ideas I have seen in a long time!"
A third added: "Hopefully it'll make Trump less likely to visit, doubtful but the highly amusing mental image of the look of disdain on his face as he lands and leaves is priceless."
Others suggested the rename could also honour Vice President Kamala Harris, with one suggesting 'Biden/Harris' International'.
Another went one step further by putting forward 'Obama/Biden/Harris International' as an alternative.
Earlier this month, Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon warned Trump to stay away from the country due to travel restrictions.
At her first coronavirus briefing of the year, she said: "I hope and expect the travel plan he immediately has is to exit the White house - beyond that, I don't know.
"We are not allowing people to come into Scotland without an essential purpose right now, and that would apply to him just as it applies to anybody else.
"Coming to play golf is not what I consider to be an essential purpose."
