Trump's previously announced visit to Ireland in question

Trump had been expected to visit Dublin, the Irish capital, as well as a golf course he owns in Doonberg, County Clare on Ireland's west coast. "The US side has cited scheduling reasons", the office of Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said in a statement.

The few short weeks the trip was on the cards also caused its own domestic problems; causing splits at the Cabinet table and sparking calls for protests against the visit and Trump administration policies.

The giant "baby Trump balloon" flown during the US President's trip to the US was set to take to the skies in Ireland during his visit.

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

She said: "The President will travel to Paris in November as previously announced".

Trump has long hinted at a visit to Ireland but will he become the only president since Reagan not to make the trip to Dublin? "As details are confirmed we will let you know".

He had originally been invited by former taoiseach Enda Kelly on his final St. Patrick's Day visit to the White House a year ago, an offer that was reiterated by Mr Varadkar last March.

The Government said at the time it would provide an opportunity to follow up on issues discussed by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Mr Trump in the White House in March, which included migration, trade, climate change and human rights issues.

"Donald Trump's administration champions policies that are destroying our planet, destabilising worldwide order, and reaching new political depths by appealing to racism, misogyny, xenophobia and hatred", Irish Green Party leader Eamon Ryan wrote in a statement urging people to reject Trump's visit.

Virgin Media News political correspondent Gavan Reilly has suggested that the visit may be postponed rather than cancelled outright.

Irish Deputy Prime Minister Simon Coveney said last week that the visit "will be controversial, because everything Donald Trump does these days is controversial".

The Labour Party, Green Party and Solidarity-People Before Profit pledged to organise protests surrounding the visit.
