Trump in Ireland for the First Time
The White House said Tuesday that President Donald Trump and his wife Melania will visit Ireland during their next trip, which includes Britain and France, and that they plan to meet Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar on June 5.
The White House said President Trump and Germany had accepted Faradkar’s invitation to visit Ireland while in Europe.
While Trump’s trip to Ireland will be his first since his inauguration in 2017, the US president is no stranger to this country.
One of his golf courses is in Dunbeg (63 km) west of Shannon, where he is scheduled to meet Faradkar.
The June 5 visit to Ireland is part of a European tour of the US president, including two stations in Britain and France to mark the 75th anniversary of the Allied landing on the French coast in Normandy in World War II.
Trump and First Lady Melania will pay an official visit to Britain from June 3 to 5, during which they will receive Queen Elizabeth II, 93. Trump will also meet Prime Minister Teresa Mae.
Trump will attend a military ceremony in Portsmouth, southern England, where Allied ships launched in June 1944, the largest maritime landing in history.
Trump is expected to arrive in France for the ceremony, followed by talks with President Emmanuel Macaron.
