Trump postpones November trip to Ireland

Trump postpones November trip to Ireland

Just last week Mr Varadkar admitted the visit came "out of the blue" and on top of that news of the visit emerged from the White House before the well-oiled wheels of the Merrion Street press machine could kick in.

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.

Leo Varadkar confirmed the November visit was cancelled and said the "US side has cited scheduling reasons".

Amid criticism government ministers reiterated the need to respect the office of the USA president but the ad-hoc manner in which the abandoned visit has played out could point to a lack of mutual respect.

Trump was due to visit on November 12 with huge public outcry over the plans.

President Donald Trump's planned trip to Ireland in November is now in question after the Irish government announced its postponement Tuesday.

"Help us to do so if you abhor his policies on climate change, refugee migration, trade wars, military expansion, economic inequality and the whole gung-ho, misogynistic, racially divisive show".

Mr Trump was originally invited to Ireland by former taoiseach Enda Kenny on his final St Patrick's Day visit to the White House past year.

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.

Stateside the issue of the illegal Irish hasn't garnered the attention the government would have hoped.

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".

Last week, Deputy Prime Minister Simon Conveney admitted the Irish government was "a little bit taken by surprise" when the announcement of the US President's visit was made.

Mr Varadkar has previously said that there is a standing invitation for any United States president to come to Ireland as many have in the past.
