President Trump is set to visit Ireland on his first official visit. 

The White House has announced that US President Donald Trump will visit Ireland in November. It is believed that he will include Ireland as one of the European countries he visits when he travels to participate in the armistice commemorations in Paris on November 11.

A statement from the White House says the visit to Ireland is to "renew the deep and historic ties between our two nations."

This will be Trump's first visit to Ireland since becoming President. He last visited in 2014 when he called at his golf course in Doonbeg, Co Clare.

Irish Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar had invited to President to visit on St Patrick's Day, causing controversy among those who felt that such an invite should not be extended to the American leader. 

"The Taoiseach understands that President Trump will stop in Ireland for a brief visit on his way to or from the Armistice commemorations in Paris," said a statement from the Irish government on Friday night.
