#SNP officials sought to withhold details of many of the deals, heavily censoring documents it released under freedom of information legislation. But the USAF confirmed Prestwick was used to support frontline US military operations.
Jackie Baillie, Scottish Labour’s economy spokeswoman, said: “In public, SNP MPs and MSPs, including Alex Salmond, fall over themselves to tell us how awful Donald J. Trump is – and frequently stand up to condemn American-led military operations.
“Yet in private the SNP government is striking deals with Trump’s generals to try to desperately prop-up Prestwick airport. It is such breathtaking hypocrisy.”
