Donald Trump is coming to Ireland this month

Which might be awkward after Enda Kenny’s recent comments.

DONALD TRUMP IS coming to Ireland later this month.

The Republican US presidential nominee made the announcement on Twitter.

He previously said he was going to visit his newly-renovated golf course in Scotland, but last night confirmed he’s coming to Ireland on the same trip.

The controversial businessman-turned-politician will visit Trump International Golf Links & Hotel in Doonbeg, Co Clare. No further plans have been announced.

US Vice President Joe Biden is due to visit Ireland from 21-26 June.


Finance Minister Michael Noonan met Trump when he visited Ireland in 2014. This morning a spokesperson for Noonan told “The minister has nothing to say about Mr Trump’s travel plans.”

‘Racist and dangerous’

Earlier this week, Taoiseach Enda Kenny described some of Trump’s comments – such as calling for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the US – as “racist and dangerous”.

Kenny was being questioned by Fianna Fáil leader Micheal Martin and Anti-Austerity People/Before Profit’s Richard Boyd Barrett about what the government’s intentions are if Trump is elected as president.

He said the decision of who would be the next president of the US is a “matter for the American people”, adding: “The world will have to deal with their decision.”
