He will be traveling to Paris to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

The President was due to visit his golf course in Doonbeg, County Clare, and Dublin on the weekend of 10-11 November.

"The president will travel to Paris in November as previously announced. As details are confirmed we will let you know", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters.

His visit to Ireland was due to coincide with that trip.

In March Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Trump met in the White House to discuss trade, immigration, climate change and human rights.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has yet to respond to the news.

USA politicians, including Trump's predecessor, former President Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaPollster: Rasmussen Research has a pro-GOP bias Democracy is alive in Trump era Senate's antics are a reminder of why colleges need to step up MORE, have often visited the country, to which around 33 million Americans trace their heritage.

Earlier this month, the White House announced Trump would travel to Ireland as part of a trip including a November 11 event in Paris marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. Washington had said that Trump would visit Ireland "to renew the deep and historic ties between our two nations".




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".

This would have been the US President's first visit to Ireland since he assumed office in January 2017.

The Green Party had called on the Irish government to cancel the visit.

And he pointed to the lack of a United States ambassador to Ireland for two years when he said: "I think it's time to try and get this relationship sorted".

Politicians and activists in Ireland had indicated they would hold protests during Mr Trump's visit.

Varadkar said after Trump's visit to Ireland was announced that it had come "a little bit out of the blue".

The Irish Government had been heavily criticised for the planned visit.

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