Donald Trump has confirmed he will visit Ireland this November.
The White House has now officially confirmed the news.
An RTÉ correspondent also confirmed: “A couple of statements made in quick successions and I can bring you a couple of points from that statement.
“He will travel to Paris first to be apart of that commemoration to remember World War 1.
“Then towards the bottom of that statement, one would almost miss it, it says that: he then, while in Europe, will visit Ireland to renew the deep and historic ties between the two nations.”
The visit is sure to cause a mixed reaction, as the US president has been shrouded in controversy since he was elected.
