Donald Trump will be visiting Ireland ‘within weeks’, it’s just been confirmed.
The US president will be in the UK from June 3 to 5 and is set to come to Ireland for a few days afterwards.
The Independent reports that Trump will be in Ireland from June 5 until June 8, and will visit Co Clare and meet with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar during his stay.
It’s likely that he will use his golf course on a visit to his Trump International resort in Doonbeg, Co Clare, and a team of Secret Service agents is reportedly due to arrive in the area soon.
The White House is expected to confirm the details of Trump’s visit in the next few days.
Trump previously planned to visit Ireland last November, but this was later cancelled ‘for scheduling reasons’.
A ‘Say Nope To The Dope’ protest had also been planned to take place at College Green in Dublin during the visit, where thousands of people were expected to attend.
During a visit to the White House last year, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said, “The invitation that Enda Kenny made to Donald Trump stands. Donald Trump has invited me to Washington DC and he is going to invite me to his house.
“I think it is absolutely appropriate, it’s normal hospitality, that when somebody invites you to their front room in their house that you reciprocate with an invitation.”
