Trump cancels visit to Ireland | TheHill

Dublin said the trip planned for November had been "postponed" due to scheduling reasons.

But White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders later told reporters that no final decision had been made. It said USA officials had "cited scheduling reasons".

President Trump's first visit to Ireland as president has been called off-according to the Irish, but not the White House.

Sanders confirmed that the Paris leg of the trip was still scheduled.

US President Donald Trump's visit to Ireland this autumn has been cast into doubt.

He told Irish radio place RTE on September 2: "There is an originate invitation to the US President to search the advice of with Eire at any time".

"The president will travel to Paris in November as previously announced", she said. Both parties were planning protests to mark Trumps arrival to the nation.

"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.

Brendan Howlin, the leader of the Labour Party in the Republic of Ireland, said that Mr Trump was "no friend of democracy or human rights".

He had been due in Ireland the following day.

Less than two weeks ago Donald Trump announced he would return to Ireland to renew the deep and historic ties between our two countries.

Irish officials gave Trump the go-ahead in 2016 to build a wall around the golf course to protect it from increasingly risky storms and rising sea levels.

"The proposed visit of the US president is postponed", an Irish government spokesman told CNN.

Two Independent Alliance Government ministers - Finian McGrath and John Halligan - had planned to take part in the protests.

Mr Martin said the whole episode had been "a very unedifying experience".

He pointed to the lack of a U.S. ambassador to Ireland for two years when he said: "I think it's time to try and get this relationship sorted".
