Irish activists and politicians have vowed to protest President Donald Trump when he visits the country this November.
The White House announced on Friday that Trump would be visiting Ireland this fall as part of a larger European Tour to "renew the deep and historic ties between our two nations." Following the announcement, Irish political parties including the Irish Labour party, Greens and Solidarity – People Before Profit immediately vowed to assemble in opposition of Donald Trump.
The hashtag #TrumpIsNotWelcomeInIreland began trending on Twitter as people took to social media to express their opposition to the president. One of the most prominent opposition leaders is Eamon Ryan, who advocated 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."
