In late November 2020, shortly after President-elect Joe Biden was projected as the winner of the 2020 presidential election, a picture started circulating on social media that supposedly showed the word “loser” projected onto the lawn of U.S. President Donald Trump’s golf course in Scotland:
This visual display was created by the British activist group “Led By Donkeys.” The group posted a video of the visual protest to Twitter on Nov. 25 in response to a tweet from Trump falsely claiming that the election was rigged:
We know you’re finding it difficult to accept the election result so we projected it onto your golf course with some familiar music pic.twitter.com/sn6h0zA5MT

This is at least the second time that Led By Donkeys has criticized Trump by projecting a display on the lawn of Trump Turnberry. In September, the group projected the number of people who have died from COVID-19 in the United States under Trump’s watch.
The Scotsman wrote:
A political campaign group has staged a protest outside Donald Trump’s flagship overseas resort, projecting images of the spiralling US Covid-19 death stats onto the US president’s property.
The protest, carried out and filmed by the Led By Donkeys group, saw a video projection of the rapidly rising death rate imposed on the grounds outside the South Ayrshire hotel.
The multimedia protest also projected the constantly increasing number of times that Mr Trump has visited one of his golf resorts during the pandemic.
Here’s a video of that display:
As of this writing in December 2020, the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 has climbed to more than 270,000.
