The US President was originally invited to Ireland by former taoiseach Enda Kenny on his final St Patrick's Day visit to the White House previous year.

The commander-in-chief would have traveled to Ireland during the same trip that puts him in Paris on November 11 to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

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

The visit would have been Trump's first to Ireland since becoming president. "As details are confirmed we will let you know", Sanders said.

Several Irish political parties vowed to protest Trump's visit by staging massive demonstrations similar to the fierce display from tens of thousands of people in the United Kingdom that greeted him in July.

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

Trump had planned to visit Dublin and his Doonbeg golf course on his way to Paris to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I on November 11.

The White House had announced the visit earlier in September. Scientists say those threats are the outcome of something for which Trump has firmly rejected government planning: climate change.

Irish officials described scant communication from Washington in the lead-up to the trip's announcement and apparent postponement. "Trump's values are not our values, and there should be no welcome mat laid out for a man of his worldview".

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

Trump was expected to visit Dublin and his Dooberg golf resort in County Clare during his now-in-question visit.

The President's trip, planned for November 12th after Armistice Day commemorations in France, will not now happen. "I can only say that Trump has accepted the invitation".
