Trump cancels planned November visit to Ireland

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar shakes hands with US President Donald Trump during the Shamrock Bowl Presentation at the White House in March

It was to be Mr Trump's first visit to Ireland since he assumed the office.

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.

Talk's between Varadkar's office and the U.S. Embassy in Dublin were continuing.

"We can confirm that the proposed visit of the USA president is postponed", said Laura Durkan, a spokeswoman for Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.

The visit to Ireland, announced by the White House in early September, was scheduled to be combined with Trump's trip to Paris to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ending of World War I.

Meanwhile, Russian media reported Tuesday that Trump may meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the same European trip that had included the planned Ireland visit. "As details are confirmed we will let you know". That summit, in Helsinki, led to widespread criticism that Trump was deferential to Putin and did not challenge him about Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election.

U.S. President Donald Trump's planned November visit to Ireland has been postponed, the Irish government said Tuesday, though the White House said only that the trip was up in the air. "Irish values", Green Party leader Eamon Ryan said.

Cilic has made two grand slam finals since but Nishikori has never been back and will now take on either twice U.S. The 20-year-old Osaka then secured a final break to close out the match. "It's great to see", said Nishikori.

As with his trip to the United Kingdom earlier this summer, a number of groups, supporting left-wing and environmentalist causes, had revealed plans to protest.

The President's trip, planned for November 12th after Armistice Day commemorations in France, will not now happen.

How long that will last remains to be seen: Donald Trump's position as US President has come under increasing pressure over the past week, with further insider revelations painting a picture of an administration which is eve=n greater disarray than had previously been imagined.

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar opposed extending an invitation to Mr Trump when he was a cabinet minister, but changed his mind when he became PM.

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

Opposition to the visit in Ireland was been expressed by the leader of the Labour Party in the Republic of Ireland, Brendan Howlin, saying Trump is "no friend of democracy or human rights".
