According to the Irish Independent, the trip was "postponed due to scheduling reasons", but some speculate that the controversy surrounding Trump coming to the island turned the president off from his visit. It said USA officials had "cited scheduling reasons".

The government needs to rebuild its relationship with the U.S. administration after President Trump postponed his November visit to Ireland over "scheduling issues", Micheál Martin has said.

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

The visit by President Donald Trump to Ireland in November has been cancelled.

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

"We have so many people from Ireland in this country - I know so many of them, I feel like I know all of them", the president said.

There were plans for Trump to spend one day in the capital before travelling to Doonbeg in County Clare where he owns a golf course.

Irish activists espousing left-wing and environmentalist causes had pledged to hold protests.

His place of job later talked about it turned into still conceivable Mr Trump will absorb Mr Varadkar's invitation at a future date, but confirmed November's day out might presumably presumably no longer be going on.

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

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

Its not clear why the visit has been cancelled.

From there, Trump was also planning to make the journey to Ireland to renew the deep and historic ties between the two nations.

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.
