Irish government says Trump has scratched planned trip to Dublin this fall

Doonbeg golf course

Donald Trump was expected to visit his golf course in Doonbeg Co Clare

In August, the White House announced Trump would visit Paris to attend events on November 11, the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I, as well as make a stop in Ireland.

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.

But White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders later told reporters that no final decision had been made, suggesting the proposed visit could still yet happen. We will always be firm friends of the American people, but Ireland will not welcome a man with Trump's record of discrimination, sexism and lies. "As details are confirmed we will let you know", Sanders said.

A White House statement had said the Irish visit would "renew the deep and historic ties between our two nations".

Irish protesters had vowed to turn out thousands of people for a Trump visit - including the "Trump baby" balloon that made such a splash during the president's United Kingdom trip in July.

Trump's visit had been announced late last month, and reportedly took the Irish government by surprise.
