Trump's Irish visit: 'There should be no welcome for this man'

US president Donald Trump has been told he is not welcome in Ireland with two Government Ministers saying they intend to boycott his visit in November.

Independent Alliance Ministers Finian McGrath and John Halligan said they intended to join the protests that are anticipated to take place when Mr Trump arrives as part of a European trip, which will see him participate in events to mark the centenary of the end of the first World War.

The White House said that Mr Trump’s visit would seek “to renew the deep and historic ties between our two nations”.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and his predecessor Enda Kenny both invited the US president to come to Ireland when meeting him in Washington in the last two years. Mr Trump, who owns Doonbeg Golf Club in Co Clare, told Mr Varadkar in March that he would “love to” visit Ireland, saying it was “a great country”.

Labour leader Brendan Howlin said said “Ireland is an open and tolerant nation, committed to peace and democracy. Trump’s values are not our values and there should be no welcome for this man”.

5. No love for Trump in Ireland

I was there in late June and July and I can tell you that he is not liked by most of the citizens. Also Ireland has made it clear that they are very pro EU which is going to cause real problems with the border. Lastly he tried to force the Irish Government to pay for a sea wall to protect his precious golf course at the expense of the existing dunes. He will not enjoy his visit.
