Donald Trump cancels plans to visit Ireland

The controversial US presidential candidate was due to visit his golf complex at Doonbeg, County Clare next week.

However, Trump will now only visit his Scottish resort.

The news comes days after Enda Kenny said he was prepared to raise concerns about what he considers “racist and dangerous” comments from the Republican candidate.

The billionaire New Yorker bought the Doonbeg resort for a vastly reduced price of €15 million back in 2014.

On a visit that same year, when he was greeted off his private jet by Michael Noonan and some dancing girls, he said he planned to “at least double or triple” his investment in years to come, and promised to work closely with environmental authorities on the redevelopment of the Greg Norman-designed course, which was badly damaged in winter storms over recent years.

The Republican presidential candidate has caused further outrage in his own country following the mass shooting in Orlando which saw 49 innocent people murdered.

Within hours of the atrocity he was accused of posting extremely distasteful Tweets and then on Monday he spoke again of banning Muslims from the USA and attacked President Obama and accused him of being  complicit or approving of Islamic terror attacks.
