The commander-in-chief would have traveled to Ireland during the same trip that puts him in Paris on November 11 to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

The President was due to visit his golf course in Doonbeg, County Clare, and Dublin on the weekend of 10-11 November.

The President is scheduled to travel to G20 meetings later in November in the Argentine capital, Buenos Aires, and make a stop in Colombia. "As details are confirmed we will let you know", Sanders said.

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar opposed extending an invitation to Mr Trump when he was a cabinet minister, but changed his mind when he became PM.

A spokesperson for Taoiseach Leo Varadkar was earlier unable to confirm the story even after it was broken on Independent.ie.

Green Party leader Eamon Ryan had encouraged citizens to "show their disgust and rejection of the Trump administration's policies by turning out, as we did during the Iraq War in 2003, in large-scale mass protest around the country", according to CNBC.

Varadkar reversed his longstanding opposition to a Trump visit after being elected prime minister previous year, warning government officials to respect the office of the USA president amid protest threats by various political parties.

No reason was given for the cancellation, although Trump was expected to face protests in Ireland.

The Irish Government had been heavily criticised for the planned visit.

He said last week that information regarding the intended trip came "a little out of the blue".

He also said it could be symptomatic of how Mr Trump operates, making decisions and undoing them quickly.

Varadkar took office as prime minister, or taoiseach, in June 2017, after winning the leadership of Ireland's ruling centre-right Fine Gael party.
