The Irish Times reports:
US president Donald Trump will visit Co Clare in early June, his first visit to Ireland as president, the White House has announced. Mr Trump will touch down in Shannon on the afternoon of June 5th after a three-day state visit to Britain. He will then depart the following morning to attend the D-Day commemorations in Normandy.
There is no confirmation if the President will return to Shannon after the D-Day events. Following disagreements over the location, Shannon Airport emerged in recent days as the most likely venue for a meeting between the Taoiseach and the US president.
Trump has apparently caved in his initial demand that the meeting take place at his Ireland golf resort.
When Varadkar visited the US in March, he and his partner met with Mike Pence and Pence’s sister. Varadkar had a separate Oval Office meeting with Trump.
Irish leader @LeoVaradkar wins power struggle with Donald Trump by refusing to schedule a meeting with the visiting president at the golf course he owns in the west of Ireland. The meeting will be, instead, at an airport. https://t.co/xloaMayFe4
