Trump Abruptly Cancels Trip to Ireland Amid Plans for Protests

Дональд Трамп перенес один из европейских визитов Trump cancels visit to Ireland | TheHill

US President Donald Trump has put off a visit to Ireland that had been scheduled to follow a commemoration in Paris of the end of World War I, the Irish government said Tuesday.

Confusing matters, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders claimed in a statement shortly afterward that the administration was still "finalizing" whether Ireland will be a stop on a previously announced trip to Europe.

The Trump International Golf Links and Hotel in Doonbeg received approval late previous year from a local government to build a wall to protect his course from rising seas.

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

Mr Trump talked about his relationship with Mr Varadkar, the Irish chief, when the pair together honored St Patrick's Day final March in Washington DC. "As details are confirmed we will let you know".

He was due to hold a two-day visit to Ireland during which he was expected to visit his golf course in Doonbeg, Co Clare, and Dublin around the weekend of November 10-11.

The Irish Green Party, which had strongly opposed Mr Trump's visit, described the cancellation as "erratic".

Mr Coveney said: "It will be controversial because everything Donald Trump does these days is controversial".

But a senior Government source in Dublin said they were confident Mr Trump would not be visiting Ireland in November as planned.

Two Independent Alliance ministers - Finian McGrath and John Halligan - had also pledged to take part in any public demonstrations during the visit.

Trump's family business operates a golf club on Ireland's west coast.

The trip to Ireland would be Trump's first to the country as President but his reception there was expected to be frosty.
