President Trump has canceled a planned trip to Ireland, the Irish government said Tuesday, amid planned demonstrations to protest his climate policies, worldwide relations and treatment of immigrants, women and minorities.
Mr Varadkar said there is a standing invitation for any USA president to come to Ireland and many have in the past.
Mr. Trump, who owns the Doonbeg Golf Resort in County Clare, was last in Ireland in 2014 but then as a businessman and private citizen. "We are still finalizing whether Ireland will be a stop on that trip".
Varadkar said then that Trump's decision to accept an open invitation "came a little bit out of the blue".
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. "As primary facets are confirmed we can let".
