Donald Trump's visit to Ireland in November cancelled

Donald Trump's visit to Ireland in November cancelled”

A visit by President Trump to Ireland in November has been cancelled, according to Irish media.

A Government spokesperson said that the visit by Mr Trump has been "postponed for scheduling reasons".

Earlier this month, the White House announced Trump would travel to Ireland as part of a trip including a November 11 event in Paris marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. Washington had said that Trump would visit Ireland "to renew the deep and historic ties between our two nations".

"There is an open invitation to the US President to visit Ireland at any time", he added.

The White House announced on August 31 that he will travel to Paris for a commemoration of the centenary of the Armistice which ended the carnage.

Trump met with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar at the White House in March as part of the Irish leader's annual St. Patrick's Day holiday visit.

"We were taken by surprise when the news broke that he was not coming, as we were when it was announced he was coming", the source said.

During his stay in Ireland, Donald Trump was expected to visit his golf course in Doonbeg, County Clare on the west coast, as well as Dublin.

Some opposition parties in Ireland had protested the trip taking place at all.

A White House statement had said the Irish visit would "renew the deep and historic ties between our two nations". Trump was originally meant to visit Colombia in April but scrapped the trip to remain in Washington and oversee military strikes in Syria.

The decision to welcome Mr Trump to Ireland was met with widespread criticism across the political spectrum.

Trump had been scheduled to stop in Ireland on his way back from commemorations of Armistice Day in France on November 11.

It was to be his first visit to the country since becoming president in 2016.
