President Trump won't be visiting Ireland this November as planned, the Irish government announced Tuesday.

Trump cited scheduling issues for his cancellation, the government said. In August, the White House shared that Trump was going to travel to Paris for an Armistice Day commemoration on Nov. 11, and was going to add a stop in Ireland, his first visit as president.

Several organizations said they were going to welcome Trump to Ireland by protesting in Dublin and at his golf resort in Doonbeg, Reuters reports. The leader of Ireland's opposition Green Party, Eamon Ryan, isn't upset over the cancellation. "Trump's positions and demeanor on every issue of of the day, from climate to women's rights, from international relations to political decency, represent the opposite of ... Irish values," he said.
