U.S. President Donald Trump, who visited Ireland last week, told Irish officials he will return to Ireland soon.

The Irish Independent reports that Trump would have an opportunity to stop in Ireland again when he attends a Nato summit in London next December, but government sources say this is “highly unlikely.”

The source added that the American leader’s visit involved “huge logistical work” and so was unlikely to be repeated in the immediate future. Trump’s visit to Ireland cost Irish taxpayers €10m for security.
