Donald Trump's visit to Ireland CANCELLED due to 'scheduling reasons'

Donald Trump and Leo Varadkar

"Mr Trump is the face of hate, racism and division".

Trump's visit was scheduled for November 12, a day after the Armistice Day celebration, and he was to spend a day in Dublin before visiting his golf course in Doonbeg on the Atlantic coast, the newspaper reports.

But White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders later told reporters that no final decision had been made, suggesting the proposed visit could still yet happen.

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

The White House announced on August 31 that Mr Trump would travel to Paris for a commemoration of the centenary of the Armistice which ended the fighting in the First World War.

President Donald Trump has cancelled a planned trip to Ireland in November after attending Armistice Day commemorations in France, catching Irish officials by surprise, The Irish Independent reported Tuesday.

"The president will travel to Paris in November as previously announced", she said.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar invited Mr Trump to Ireland during a meeting at the St Patrick's Day celebrations in Washington in March.

He added that the Irish government disagreed with Trump administration policies on climate change, migration, trade and other issues.

Last month, the White House said Mr Trump would visit Ireland as part of a wider trip to Europe to "renew the deep and historic ties between our two nations". "Irish values", Green Party leader Eamon Ryan said.

Mr Varadkar said there is a standing invitation for any U.S. president to come to Ireland and many have in the past.

Labour Party leader Brendan Howlin tweeted that Trump "has been no friend of democracy or human rights".

Last week, Mr Varadkar said the news that Mr Trump was to visit Ireland "came a little bit out of the blue".
