WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump have accepted an invitation to visit Ireland while in Europe next month to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
Trump and Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar will hold a bilateral meeting in Shannon on June 5.
Irish media have reported tension between Ireland and the U.S. over a meeting location.
The Irish Times reported that Varadkar was reluctant to go to Trump International Golf Links and Hotel Doonbeg and wanted a more neutral venue.
But Deputy Prime Minister Simon Coveney says reports of a spat were “a total exaggeration and in some cases not true.”
