According to NBC News, an Irish government spokesperson confirmed “that the proposed visit of the US President is postponed,” adding that the “US side has cited scheduling reasons.”

The U.K. Independent reports that the announcement of the trip, as well as the subsequent postponement, came as news to Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.

After news of the trip surfaced, Trump critics across the country began planning protests in coordination with his visit.

The White House says Trump will still visit Paris as planned.

“We are still finalizing whether Ireland will be a stop on that trip,” the administration said.
