"The US side has cited scheduling reasons", he added.

The White House has not yet made a final decision on whether U.S. President Donald Trump will make a stop in Ireland as part of his trip to Paris later this autumn, a spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

The U.S. President had planned to visit Dublin, and his five-star West Clare resort, on November 12th and 13th.

He told Irish radio station RTE on September 2: "There is an open invitation to the US President to visit Ireland at any time".

Trump "will travel to Paris in November as previously announced", she said.

President Trump welcomes Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar for a St. Patrick's Day reception at the White House in Washington, March 15, 2018. "As primary facets are confirmed we can let".

The Irish diplomatic source said indications the trip would be scrubbed were also a surprise.

The cancellation was first reported by the Irish Independent newspaper, which noted that political parties including Labour and the Greens had planned to protest the November 12 visit to Dublin.

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

The White House had announced the visit on August 31, taking Varadkar by surprise.

"The visit came out of the blue and has now been canceled in the same erratic way". Both parties were planning protests to mark Trumps arrival to the nation. Scientists say those threats are the effect of something for which Trump has firmly rejected government planning: climate change.

Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin said the expected cancellation of Mr Trump's visit reflected a relationship between the two countries that was "not functioning".
